Feelings of depression, fear, anxiety, confusion, anger, grief, trauma, and other struggles beset us all at times. I believe creating an environment where everyone can feel safe and heard is vital, and cultivating a therapeutic alliance to be alongside individuals as a nonjudgmental support in the journey to wholeness and independence. I listen for unique needs and preferences and utilize an eclectic and integrated approach to working with the whole person. With empathy and compassion I will also ask challenging questions to explore ideas, new ways of thinking and understanding, and guide intuitive discovery for meaningful change.

If you are seeking counseling, you might be trying to make sense of challenging relationships, in the middle of an unforeseen transition, or just starting to process wounds from your past. With everything that you are dealing with, you may have noticed some patterns emerging that keep you from feeling like yourself--maybe criticism directed inward or at others, coping with food or substances, or just shutting down completely.

Reaching out in times of need is not always easy- this last year alone has led many of us through uncharted territories. Sometimes we are left in a place where it can be difficult to ask for what we need, especially if we aren’t sure what that may be. I can offer help by providing a safe and non-judgmental space to explore your needs. You are the expert on you. My role is to provide an outside perspective to help channel clearer insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Working together in this manner will allow you to build on the strengths and resiliency that are already within you.
