I work with clients who have experienced early childhood trauma due to divorce, adoption /foster care, abuse, racism and other traumas.
Life is complex. Some challenges we face come for a season and others for a lifetime. Perhaps it's a seasonal time of difficulties for you and the next step seems daunting or even unknown. Maybe you have experienced trauma that has changed the way you see and interact in the world. Hardships in our lives can make us question who we are and wonder where our place is in this world. Through our time together, I want to walk with you as you define who you are and how you want to move and take that "next best step" for yourself.

I also support individuals experiencing family communication difficulties, life transitions, adoption /fostering and multiculturalism.
Each of us has unique strengths and skills, developed through their personal experiences and stories, but we sometimes underestimate ourselves. When we encounter obstacles or feel overwhelmed, our own abilities can seem out of reach and we begin to practice negative thoughts towards ourselves and others. I am here to help you navigate those stressors and burdens, while supporting you towards gaining a deeper understanding of your own identity. It would be my privilege to provide you with a safe space to explore your narrative and to walk with you on your mental health journey!

Personally and professionally, I am part of the LGBTQ+ community and adoption constellation.
*Not currently accepting new clients* Researching therapists is a big step, especially when you're used to handling things alone. Maybe it's due to recent events or something else, but things have changed. You're emotionally burned out. While you may be more comfortable supporting others, know that it's ok to get support for yourself. Therapy can be transformative when you're ready.

I work with most life issues including, but not limited to, self-growth, depression, anxiety, relationship and family problems, spirituality, cutting, adoption , trauma, loss, ADHD, adolescent and family concerns, eating concerns, college transition, retirement transition, and bipolar disorder.
I view my clients as fellow human beings in search of some type of change. For one reason or another, they feel stuck or unable to get where they want. Together we work towards growth by identifying the issues involved, establishing hopes and goals, and increasing awareness of recurring patterns that maintain dysfunction. I find that often these patterns were somehow adaptive, but are now "outdated" for life's current situation. As awareness of one's desires, perceptions, fears, and strengths increase, doors often begin to open. There are more options and more opportunities for change and connection with others.

I am excited to connect with people who find themselves ready for a change, but perhaps unsure of how to make that happen for themselves. I enjoy helping people explore all parts of their life to help make sense of present situations and to make a plan for a healthier future. This can look like discussing nutrition, exercise, emotional intelligence, past relationships and family dynamics, as well as a myriad of other topics. I prioritize a holistic approach for not only my clients, but for my own life as well and have personally experienced healthy change from this perspective.

Let's face it: life is messy. We are all broken people living in a broken world and doing the best that we can. And sometimes our best just doesn't seem to be good enough. We can find ourselves disillusioned and heartbroken and yet we don't know how we wound up here. We long for more out of this life and yet we don't know how to get there. Whether you are grieving a loss, struggling to make a decision, or simply find yourself stuck in a rut, counseling can help you understand not just the origin of your problems but also assist you in developing practical coping skills and solutions.
