You do you! As a therapist I utilize expressive arts and experiential therapies to help you examine and work through the issues you are having, and in a way that works for you as an individual. Anxiety and depression often respond well to experiential therapies. Let's dig in and get our hands dirty. I'll be right beside you! I provide counseling to individuals, families and group therapy. I offer school based services for students, and can also provide family therapy.

“What you seek is seeking you.” The mere fact that you are looking for a therapist right now tells me that you are ready to heal. We all go through ups and downs in life, and sometimes we just need someone to listen without fear of judgement. Maybe you’ve experienced trauma, and can’t quite, “get over it.” Perhaps you are showing one side of yourself to the world, but internally dying to be recognized for who you show yourself when nobody is looking. There are so many different reasons as to why you are choosing now to look in the mirror. I can help you see with clarity, with an unbiased, open-minded viewpoint.

As a member of the LGBT+ community I am passionate about serving the LGBT+ community. Is a loved one of yours an LGBT+ member and you are struggling to move forward? accept? and/or want to reconcile with your LGBT+ loved one? Being LGBT+ can be hard in our society and it can help to talk about these experiences. Being fearful of our LGBT+ loved one's safety and well being can be stressful as well.

Everyone has a story, and each story is different and deserves to be told. Our stories at times can be filled with unexpected and sometimes overwhelming challenges that affect each of us in different ways. Through my own personal and professional story, I have discovered that building a supportive relationship through therapy creates a safe place to explore life struggles, understand difficult issues, develop new skills, enrich relationships, and work through situations to lead a more authentic life.

My approach in therapy is about establishing connection with my clients and validating their experiences. I enjoy creating a space where people feel respected, safe, and able to share anything that may be on their minds. The effect of having one’s feelings and thoughts acknowledged and understood is a significant component in working toward progress and relief of symptoms they struggle to manage. I also believe that therapy is a collaborative process. I work together with clients and families to identify goals that enable them to feel empowered to make healthier decisions.
