Are you someone who tries to solve problems on your own? If so, you're probably good at it. But it can get lonely. People might assume you’re okay, even when you’re struggling. While these patterns of self-reliance might have supported you in the past, they may be keeping you from becoming the best version of yourself. No matter what you're struggling with, therapy can help you understand these patterns and leave behind what is keeping you from thriving.

Life can be challenging. Maybe you have been feeling overwhelmed, confused, alone, stressed, sad, or stuck. Perhaps what used to help you feel better is no longer working. Maybe what brought your life purpose and meaning no longers feels aligned with the YOU of today. Maybe you are having difficulty connecting with the people most important to you. Know that whatever it is you are feeling as you read this, it is valid, your experience is valid, and you have the capacity for change. I invite anyone seeking support in their lives, and have experience working with adults from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

When working with individuals, I believe that the counselor/client relationship is the basis on which other relationships are modeled, and made healthy and whole. When working with couples, therapy is a process in which all present parties contribute to the work. Treatment goals are mutually established, addressed collaboratively, and revisited throughout the treatment process. Some of the areas in which I am experienced working include relationship issues, depression, and anxiety.

As a therapist I work with clients who are ready to feel empowered to work through life's challenges and grow into their most authentic self. I champion clients as they heal through past traumas, work on boundaries, and create fulfillment in their lives. Together we can address anxiety, depression, life transitions, boundaries, relationships, career transitions, and unhealthy coping skills that no longer serve you.

I don't have an ideal client as I believe everyone is unique and I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are invested in changing patterns and moving into the future with a more positive outlook on themselves and how they impact others. I like to challenge and offer alternatives while also listening to what has worked and build on the positives.

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.

I believe that we humans heal in the context of relationship and that therapy is the process in which we find our way to our whole selves. In the therapy room, I join with clients to co-create their unique path to wholeness by realizing their inherent strengths and utilizing them to developing a 'tool belt' of strategies for which to work through life's struggles. Together we orient to the client's inherent capacity to gain mastery of their own functioning from the lens of their truth.

According to my mother, my first word was "why." Why is the sky blue? Why can't I have a cookie for breakfast? Why are people hurting? This curiosity is integral to my work as a therapist, as I strive to understand my client's worldview and the problems they are facing. Whether you are reliving past trauma, plagued by worrisome thoughts, concerned about your relationship or substance use, or feeling generally dissatisfied in life, I will provide an empathic ear, support, and guidance to help you meet these challenges and make the life changes you desire.

Today’s environment makes many assumptions about the nature of psychological health, oftentimes seeing depression, anxiety, or other psychological concerns as problems to be avoided and eradicated. However, there is much that our symptoms can teach us about ourselves and our world if we know how to listen to them. Sometimes, they may even hold the key to our psychological well-being.
