My goal in therapy is to show you compassion. I hope that through my compassionate example you will learn to be gentle with yourself as you go through life transitions that make you question your life decisions and how you cope with obstacles. As you make your way through changes that could include family disruptions and loss, learning how to end addictions to substances, or adjusting to health problems, acknowledging ways you have been able to find strength and resolve problems will be vital to finding joy and meaning in your day-to-day life.

Sad? Stressed? Overwhelmed? Relationship conflicts? Life not going the way you planned? Feeling hopeless? Feeling alone? No one understands? I believe that most of our struggles start with our wounds. We are all wounded. We will walk down the path to recovery together. We will focus on your strengths, not your failures. A compassionate ear without judgment is what you can expect. An understanding environment is what you will experience. I offer talk therapy, play therapy, art therapy, and outside therapy with an eclectic and individualized approach. No two therapy sessions are exactly alike.

For many people, faith is an integral part of their sense of wholeness. For clients who feel that way, I integrate faith into the experience of psychotherapy. Frequent issues that clients bring into counseling include relationships, depression, anxiety, life transitions, illness, and grief. But regardless the struggle, the integration of scientifically evidence-based practices alongside faith belief systems offer a holistic approach to therapy that many clients appreciate. Clients always have the option to exclude faith from their counseling experience.
