I am an LPC-Associate supervised by Daniel Gowan, LPC-S. My clients are adults of all ages working through a wide range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, addiction, grief, spiritual disconnection, relationship difficulties, and more. I have a particular interest and additional experience with the LGBTQ population, young adults working to establish their identities, those working through painful grief journeys, and those who are exploring their faith or spirituality. My goal is always to create a space free from judgment where you can explore who you are, who you want to be, and who you feel called to be.

I have experience working with LGBTQ+ adolescents and adults on transitions, identity integration, self-esteem, and grief.
You’re a teenager, and the anxiety about your gender and sexuality is keeping you from feeling truly loved and wanted by your parents and friends. You’re in a relationship dreading the day you have to tell them your identity wasn't quite what you thought it was. You're life since coming out is better than it ever was before...but you're still plagued with indecision, self-consciousness, and a doubt that says things will never get better. I get it. I get you. And as you learn to communicate clearly, express yourself fully, and assert boundaries with others, you can experience the understanding and peace that you long for every day.
