Seeking a counselor is a very brave thing to do. So often the fear gets in the way of us being our best selves. I know the feeling of vulnerability when meeting with a therapist for the first time, which is why I always provide a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for my clients to explore. I believe the counseling relationship is a partnership, with the goal of growth. Whether things from your past or current life challenges, I am here to listen and help you regain peace and contentment.

I know how difficult it was for me to seek counseling after a car accident. The help I received was so positive, that I decided to switch majors to become a therapist. I wanted to be a part of the healing process for others to have improved coping skills and a better quality of life.

I believe knowledge of our nervous systems with its attachment and stress response functions is important. The relationship we form in therapy can help you to move toward relief, understanding and the change you are hoping for. Knowledge of the nervous system also informs how we will specifically work to heal difficult or even traumatic experiences. We will build awareness, gain skills and ultimately heal mind and body. We will work on past traumas and difficulties, leaning on strengths and natural resilience, creating personalized solutions to develop gifts, find meaning and live according to your values.

Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.
