Welcome! Most people are resilient, most of the time, in facing life's problems. But there comes a time when almost everyone needs help. Stressful life events, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and other pressures are sometimes overwhelming. It's a strength to ask for help when you need it. I can help you explore in-depth understanding and insight, or develop strategies to cope with stress and change. I work with adults with depression, anxiety and panic, career and relationship issues, ADHD, bipolar disorder, stress management, grief, and traumatic stress.

Making the decision to start counseling services is a wonderful first step, but finding the right counselor for you may seem daunting. The goal is to find a counselor with whom you resonate and feel safe. Whether you're feeling stuck due to life's unexpected turns, finding it difficult to cope with a situation, or realizing your ability to function has decreased, I will provide the encouragement, knowledge, and experience that can lead to positive changes. This will take place in a private, non-judgmental, safe space.

Life can be difficult and overwhelming. You don't have to go it alone. Allow me to support you in discovering ways to care for yourself. Where else during our busy weeks are we allowed to focus solely on ourselves? Taking time to care for oneself through therapy can be a deeply comforting experience. Let me know how I can support you and help you discover this experience.

I value the power of the relationship between therapist and client and honoring my clients is foundational to my practice. I have been described as warm, authentic, welcoming, loyal, and someone safe with whom to disclose deeper feelings and experiences. I attempt from the first session to hone in and appreciate my clients' strengths, to listen deeply with genuine compassion, and to hold my clients' shared story with great value and reverence. I seek to facilitate the therapy office as a place where the inner wisdom of the client-- the inner self--can safely emerge.

Life’s challenges happen suddenly. Without warning it feels like you can’t navigate through with confidence and calm. Instead, you are plagued with worry, hesitation, anxiety, and depression. At times, life feels like a ticking time bomb, and you are desperately searching for an effective means to diffuse it. But your coping skills aren’t working well enough, or maybe they weren’t that healthy in the first place. How are you supposed to get comfortable with the challenges you are experiencing, let alone feel you are responding in a healthy way, when everything around you – maybe even your person – can be so unpredictable?
