My approach to counseling is to create a safe space for growth and healing. I believe that growth and healing happen when people recognize that they have a circle of care (including clinicians) that show them empathy and support, that they can rely on and recognize that they have their best interests in mind. My therapeutic techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy to create an atmosphere where the client recognizes that they are in control of their therapeutic experience.

Have you, or your teenager, felt overwhelmed by anxiety? Are persistent feelings of sadness interfering with your ability to function at work, in school, or at home? Do you have difficulty getting sleep or do you feel nervous all of the time? Many of us are challenged by emotions that we have difficulty handling. In therapy, you can expect me to bring the best tools to meet your needs, building your coping skills, and improving your ability to manage those difficult emotions. If you experienced trauma in the past, I can help you understand the effects of that trauma on your life and help you function in your everyday life.

There are many misconceptions about what it means to be in therapy. Anyone can benefit from therapy, regardless of what walk of life they come from. It does not mean that you are broken, weak or crazy. What it does mean is that you are up for the challenge of confronting harmful beliefs, habits, and communication styles so that you can live a life that is authentically yours. Sitting across from this screen right now takes courage and vulnerability. Our mental health shows itself in all areas of our lives: relationships, perception, management of daily life, sense of self, and our ability connect to our emotions and body.

I stress the importance of a strong, caring therapeutic relationship with my clients. I provide a safe, supportive environment in which clients can discuss their feelings and experiences, both past and present. We engage in a collaborative dialogue that allows for inquiry into why patients feel the way they do and what factors have influenced their development into who they are and how they experience life. In doing so, they are often able to feel better about themselves, their relationships, and their place in the world.

I believe that my role as a therapist is to create a space where you feel supported, safe, and validated as we navigate challenges together. I will be there beside you as you gain the skills to shape your life the way you envision and work towards your goals. I think that everyone can benefit from therapy, whether it’s short-term to help you through a life transition or longer-term support, I will be here to help and accept you as you are. Many people who are members of the LGBTQ+, kink, or poly communities can feel stigmatized during therapy and I aim to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere for all my clients.

The conflict for you is that you are talented and capable, but underneath you are not so sure. You have overcome challenges and survived. Yet there remains self-doubt and anxiety. You are not going to get to where you feel you should be as long as these struggles weigh you down. Are you feeling misunderstood by others or unsure who's right for you? Or maybe unsure of what you really need? Whatever the reasons, it leads you to a familiar road of dissatisfaction, frustration, and sadness.

Are you struggling to have a healthy relationship with yourself or with others? Does it often feel like happiness comes more easily to other people than it does to you? Or that somewhere along the way, you stumbled or lost your way, and are fighting to find it again? Let me assure you that you deserve and are capable of joy and growth. My work has shown me that happiness does not mean feeling "good" all the time, but rather being strong enough to tolerate all that life throws at us. Maybe you have been thrown an awful lot.
