Visiting with a counselor can be a life changing experience. I work with clients from early childhood through all phases of adulthood. Everyone has a unique story, and I value the personal experiences, hopes, and dreams of all my clients. Partnering during a trusting counseling relationship can be one of the best ways to reach your goals and create lasting, positive change in your life. The relationship between counselor and client can create a vessel or space in which we can unpack and sort through your concerns with care, compassion, and confidentiality.

I believe identity is a critical part of self-understanding and healing. For this reason, I enjoy working with folks who are looking to explore their identities which might include sexuality, gender, race, religion, physical and mental ability, and roles in society. I am cognizant that our identities shape our personal and lived experiences in the world, and this continually impacts how and what we need to heal. I approach therapy from a non-religious standpoint, but have a deep interest in how religion impacts people, including ways that it can act as a source of trauma, while also acknowledging that it can be a source of support.

I work with adults and teens age 14+ on problems ranging from getting over a breakup to overcoming a lifetime of trauma. I use humor and compassion alongside technique and knowledge to help clients calm their thoughts, develop meaningful connections with others, and resolve even long-standing problems. I use concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and psychodynamic techniques to identify and challenge damaging thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors, ultimately helping clients create a story of themselves that is authentic and empowering.

Most of us didn't grow up in a home where our emotions were nurtured and honored. Additionally, most of us have had experiences that were too much, too fast and/or too soon for our bodies - trauma. Because of this, we often find ourselves in adulthood practicing what we learned in childhood: all the ways we can avoid our body and emotions! This avoidance is what leads to common issues such as anxiety and depression etc. We are afraid to dive into this emotional realm because we have been taught to be afraid! If you are reading this, I'm assuming you have experienced this fear and do not know what to do about it.

Life gets tough sometimes and everyone needs a little help. Sometimes that help comes from friends or family, but other times that help can come from a professional. Reaching out to a counselor is tough but frequently can be the first step towards improvement in life. It is important to find a counselor with whom you feel comfortable enough to do the tough work and talk about the hard issues. I enjoy learning whether that is from formal training and classwork or from the people I work with. I consider therapy a collaborative experience where we learn from each other.

Maybe you’re unsure if what you’ve experienced would be classified as “trauma”. You tell yourself you haven’t had it that bad…and yet, you notice a sense of unease in your body whenever past moments creep into your mind. Or perhaps a complete separation from feeling at all when certain sensations occur in your body. After being told there isn’t an explanation for your chronic pain, you’ve been left feeling even more unsure of yourself. You want connection and a healthy relationship/ sex life but something you can’t quite name is holding you back. I am here to help as you make sense of your story and find true healing.
