​​​It’s not just you, we’re all doing our best to deal with the stresses of modern life and it seems many of us are becoming increasingly overwhelmed. I companion adults who feel they are being stretched to the breaking point by one or more of those "bigger issues" in life that threaten our over-all wellbeing, if not our very existence:​ Identity, Isolation, Death, Meaning, Freedom, and Happiness. With a background in healthcare and advanced training in pastoral care and counseling, I’m going to respect and honor you as a person no matter what issues or troubles you bring with you into our conversations.

Asking for help can be difficult, and to ask for help for mental health reasons can be seem almost impossible. People worry about being judged, appearing to be weak, or fear of being vulnerable. However, counseling doesn’t have to be scary. It can be seen as an opportunity to work with someone who wants you to succeed in life, and be there through the tough times. Counseling can be an opportunity for someone positive to work with you to build hope and strength. I work hard to be this person when working with my clients, and look forward to the opportunities to help people achieve their goals.

Therapy is about gathering and understanding the pieces of your story. The themes of our story, the characters we've encountered, the obstacles we've faced, and the meaning we've made from our experiences, these are all complex things. It's my job (and joy!) to sort through these pieces and provide a new lens in order to challenge you, push you, and help you grow into the most healthy, authentic version of you. I love helping people understand themselves better and find courage to connect more with those around them.
