I take an integrative approach to counseling, understanding that each client is unique and brings their own experiences.
Coming to counseling is often not an easy decision to make, and I commend you for taking the first step and researching your options. In order for the process to be as beneficial as possible, it is important that you find someone that you can trust and open up to. Counseling often involves discussing tough topics and areas in your life that you are struggling with, so an empathetic and understanding counselor is important.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.

I believe identity is a critical part of self-understanding and healing. For this reason, I enjoy working with folks who are looking to explore their identities which might include sexuality, gender, race, religion, physical and mental ability, and roles in society. I am cognizant that our identities shape our personal and lived experiences in the world, and this continually impacts how and what we need to heal. I approach therapy from a non-religious standpoint, but have a deep interest in how religion impacts people, including ways that it can act as a source of trauma, while also acknowledging that it can be a source of support.

Are you stuck? Something in life not all what you hoped it would be? Good for you for not letting more time go by without seeking help and making a change. Therapy can be an incredible resource to discover and navigate the “why’s” underneath our obstructive thoughts, confusing behaviors and disconnected relationships. It can also provide space for healing as we learn how to become more deeply rooted in who we are and how we want to show up for the life we’ve been given.
