I am focused on providing a collaborative and person-centered approach for those seeking therapeutic services. There is no "one-size-fits-all" philosophy in counseling and each person deserves an individualized process that can help with developing tools in order to better cope with life stressors or transitions. My goal is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment throughout each client's journey towards finding clarity and stability in their lives. Everyone deserves to find the confidence in themselves to further their personal or professional goals in life.

**Accepting New Clients** We all have setbacks from time to time – some big, some small. How we navigate life’s setbacks can make a big difference. Going to counseling can be intimidating, and I understand that. Connecting with someone and talking things through is essential for our “mental fitness.” Mental health/fitness is just as necessary as our physical fitness. Whether you want to map out a career change/advancement or struggling with life changes, anxiety, general stress, feeling overwhelmed, chronic illness, eating disorder, or something is just not right; please allow me to help you bring balance to your life.

My goal is to work with you to develop the tools necessary for the growth you seek. We all require support at times in our lives and it has always been my passion to help others.

It is easy to feel anxiety, depression, low self esteem, or grief. Maybe you are in a difficult relationship where your needs aren't being met, or are recovering from some form of infidelity. I believe healing can be found with self exploration, conversation and the support of a compassionate therapist. I work to make sure you feel safe to take time, breathe, feel free to process your thoughts (big or small), cry, shout, and laugh. It is through this process I hope you will find healing and strength.

I have been fortunate to have the majority of my referrals come through friends or family of prior clients. The passion I felt when entering the field of counseling 20 years ago, seems even greater today. More individuals and couples are genuinely motivated to seek deeper levels of understanding and self-awareness. Most behavior and thought patterns are learned early in our development. Many suffer due to repeated behavior and choices, involving friends, family, and relationships. Change in the choices we make, often results in positively altering the way we feel, perceive, and live life. Authentic change begins within oneself.
