About

I believe that hope for improvement or personal growth requires two things. The first is willpower, or motivation for change. If you're considering therapy, you probably already have that. The second is Waypower, or clarity on what the path forward looks like. If you know you want to make some changes but you're not sure how to get there, that's where I can help. If you are looking for relief from symptoms of anxiety or depression...if you are navigating a major life transition and it feels harder than you think it should...if you are feeling "stuck"... or your relationships are not quite what you want them to be, therapy can help.
At Waypower Counseling, I specialize in individualized mental health counseling via teletherapy. I work primarily from a cognitive behavioral and person-centered framework, and I believe that ultimately all people are experts on themselves. My goal is to help my clients find clarity in their personal goals and create a clear pathway to reach those goals.
I believe that most people experience challenges in mental health at some point in their lives, and when that point comes, therapy is a valuable tool in recovery, relief, and personal growth. If you have questions about the therapy process, you're not sure, or you want to consult before you commit to an appointment, I'm happy to answer your questions.
