**NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** There are many reasons why you may be seeking out a therapist today. Perhaps someone is "nudging" you to get help. Maybe things are so that the discomfort of the pain you feel now is outweighing the discomfort of the idea of seeing a therapist. Or you'd like some unbiased support in moving more quickly to a life you'd like. Whatever is bringing you to this place is exactly what is supposed to happen at this moment. I'd like to find out if you and I are a good fit to make the changes you're looking for!

I understand that you may need a place where you can just be real, be yourself, and not feel judged when you are trying to navigate life's challenges. I have clients with issues ranging from the day-to-day problems all the way to traumatic experiences. I recognize that trauma does not have to be from one incident and can come from a lifetime of self-talk that reinforces an old message or belief. Not everyone has a place where they can feel safe and many of my clients would say they have been very comfortable with me. Counseling works best when we realize how instrumental the therapist/client relationship can be in healing.
