It’s important to me that you have a safe space to share your thoughts, your feelings, and your life experiences. I work with adolescents (age 11+) and adults. I want to help you or your child navigate daily life, manage emotions and relationships, process your experiences and meet your goals for change. Coming to counseling can be hard work so I use compassion, humor, and warmth to help clients feel comfortable. I serve clients of all racial, ethnic and religion backgrounds. I am an LGBTQ+ ally and work to help families process and understand sexual orientation and gender identity. *Now accepting new clients at a new location*

I work with adult clients and have specialized experience working with transgender and gender nonconforming individuals in support of transition and recognize that life is about more than dysphoria.
Unfortunately I am not taking new clients at this time, but if you are interested in working with me please reach out and I'd be happy to add you to my wait list. I use an eclectic approach based on Narrative Therapy. We are more than the problems we face. I work with clients to reclaim ownership of their lives and become empowered to make the changes they have been hoping for. Sometimes, as we change, our ideas and our goals change, too. I try to provide a safe space for my clients to explore their goals, and shift or change as appropriate.

Wounds often shape our life's choices without our knowledge of their presence. Life is hard and these wounds can wear on us over time. Are you unsure if you're struggling with an addiction and you feel like your substance may be wreaking havoc on your life and your relationships? It takes courage to ask for help. I can meet you where you are and we can explore this together in an environment that is free of shame and judgement. Successful therapy involves a collaborative relationship where clients risk to uncover wounds and challenge unhelpful family structures.

The decision to see a counselor may be intimidating or overwhelming. Sometimes we need to seek help outside family and friends. It is not easy to walk through the door and talk to a complete stranger. I want you to know, I have been there, and I know finding that connection with a therapist is the most important determinate that leads to a positive treatment outcome. I work with couples who struggle with a variety of issues, including infidelity. I also work with individuals who struggle with issues related to trauma/PTSD. Investing in yourself and your relationships will be the most important investment in your lifetime.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.

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.
