I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME ............That saying, "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger" -- I think it should be "What doesn't kill me makes me suffer." So many people feel unheard, disconnected, tired, worthless, fearful, sad, anxious and forgettable. They need the skills to nurture their resilience, to discern their incredible value. There's a loneliness in struggling. But I'm here to help you heal yourself with a new, creative perspective and find resources you didn't know you possessed.
I utilize a straight-forward and honest approach to therapy and I am direct in identifying real-life solutions to the presenting issues. I am an experienced counselor and I am often able to connect with those who are resistant to counseling or skeptical of the counseling process. I also focus on building strong and caring relationships with my clients. When appropriate, I like to implement humor in the treatment process. I have experience in treating issues such as (but not limited to): depression, anxiety, PTSD/trauma, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, anger issues, parenting concerns, and marriage/couples issues.
Who is the most influential person you know? Would you believe it's yourself? You listen to the thoughts in your head more than anyone else. Your internal dialogue shapes your behaviors more than you can imagine. We often get stuck when we believe these thoughts.

My goal as a therapist include creating a safe space for you to be you without JUDGEMENT and to help you ease into the process of changing through providing support and encouragement. As we work together to build a personalized therapy plan, my hope is that you will gain a deeper understanding about you and find some practical skills/tools to use in the real world.
I use a person centered, positive psychology approach. I believe you are the expert of your own experience and therefore in charge of your counseling goals. You have the power and strength to move to a more empowering mindset. My role is to support your efforts with compassion, encouragement, insight and resources. If you are not sure of your specific goals, that is OK. You know you want to feel better. We can start there.
As a counselor, I specialize in grief and trauma, depression, anxiety, and holistic health and wellness. I’m trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Therapy for individuals and couples interested in working through attachment and bonding challenges, Gottman 1 and 2 couples counseling, and mindfulness practices.

**NOW OFFERING ONLINE/TELEMENTAL HEALTH SESSIONS It takes courage to reach out and involve a counselor in our most intimate of life's struggles. I honor that courage. My goal is to provide a safe and judgment-free environment for you to process what's going on in your life. Making a connection with a counselor you trust is so important. I chose to do this work because I am passionate about helping people, and maybe more so, because I have personally experienced very powerful changes in my own life from facing my "stuff" with a therapist I trusted. I believe in this process.
My approach to counseling is based on a willingness to enter into an individual's experience alongside them. I believe in engaging with others in a manner that promotes dignity, trust, and choice. I strive to treat each person as a unique individual, worthy of unconditional acceptance, regardless of his or her personal circumstances or struggles. It is my desire to come alongside, challenge, and encourage my clients to find healing emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
