About

Sometimes our lives can look fine "on paper" but it still feels like something is missing. Not knowing what that something is can be stressful, and even knowing exactly what that something is can be frustrating when knowing isn't enough. Whether you're struggling with your relationship, work, family, self-esteem, or sense of meaning and purpose, that struggle becomes heavier by trying to manage it all on your own. The truth is that nobody does life on their own, so you shouldn’t feel like you have to.
As a licensed professional counselor, I feel honored to help guide people through their struggles so that they can discover their own answers. My method is based in a non-judgmental and caring perspective that allows what is negative to be negative and what is positive to be paramount.
It’s my goal to listen, to reflect back, and to help shed light on what you might not be saying aloud but are waiting to hear. Life is hard enough on its own. The last thing we need is to be hard on ourselves. Take the step to put yourself first. Please reach out and book an appointment for an initial consultation.
