About

*Seeing Clients in Alaska and Georgia* Life happens in unexpected ways. Whether adjusting to a sudden life change or a known life transition, you may be feeling emotionally overwhelmed and exhausted. The time period of transitioning to adulthood is stressful enough and dealing with anxiety, hopeless feelings, or just uncertainty on how to move forward can make it unbearable. Many adults have found help by reaching out and working with a therapist. There is an opportunity to learn and grow from your experience. Maya Angelou says, “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
Life can be hard, but therapy doesn't have to be. I embrace modern technology and offer affordable secure online therapy. I have many years of counseling experience providing individual and group therapy. My approach combines elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, expressive arts therapy, and positive psychology.
Making the choice to get help is a courageous step. I am here to provide a safe space, listen, and help guide you through the process of becoming stronger, braver, and more satisfied with life.
