Whether it's depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship struggles, or tackling a new chapter of life, I love working with clients who are ready to understand themselves better, and looking for support in their growth. I believe every person has their own unique set of patterns for tackling life and emotions, and problems often arise when these patterns are no longer serving us well. It can be difficult and frustrating to seek a better life if we do not first understand what has brought us to our current struggle or what still stands in our way. I'm here to be a listener, companion, and problem-solver while you're on that journey.
Let's work together to understand the patterns you use to create meaning and navigate the world. When you feel heard, supported, and ready, we'll reflect on which patterns are strengths you can lean on, which might be remnants from the past that are ready to be left behind, and which need just a little TLC and intentionality to meet your current needs.
Seeking counseling can bring up a lot of intimidating emotions. Sometimes it feels like our problems are too big to share with someone else... and sometimes it feels like they're too small to deserve help. The truth is, every human is worthy and deserving of support! Let's work together to get you closer to that happier, healthier life you're looking for.

I have found my approach to be a strong fit for people wrestling with anxiety or trauma, stuck in "freeze" mode (or "always on" mode), buried under feelings of shame, and/or feeling like their mind is their own worst enemy. I'm here to help you befriend yourself and your nervous system along the way! If you like to learn the "why", I'd love to help you find it.
