About

I have experience working with a wide variety of mental health concerns. I am skilled with short-term life stressors, life transitions, and adjustments. I can help your family find common ground again in working through conflicts, or at least come to see an impasse for what it is. My office is a welcoming and affirming space for people of all genders and sexualities. I enjoy working with adults of all ages. I believe we are all attempting to become our freest and truest selves. It is my honor and privilege to help you take the next steps.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) with 20 total years’ experience working with people in various settings and with varying needs (including over 40 years’ experience dealing with myself).
My approach is centered in the idea that we are equals with different skill sets. We’ll use evidence-based tools and concepts from therapy modalities like CBT, DBT, and ACT. I’m informed by 12-Step principles. My primary goal is to offer the clear and consistent message that you are heard and understood, that you are truly seen and accepted.
