"As a counselor, I empower individuals to overcome obstacles and disturbances in their lives. Feeling stuck and overwhelmed by life's stressors is normal, and the counseling relationship is a foundational tool for moving in a more intentional, positive direction. I offer unique guidance on life's "curve balls", spiritual issues, and processing change, while providing creative ways to reconsider how you interact with the world around you."

"In the stain glass windows of your life there lay a story. As long as you continue breathing the rest remains unwritten. The end is not yet. I invite your attention to settle on what matters today. Notice where you'd like to start. What’s on your heart. What’s the hardest part. Notice that something is holding you back and that you sense a block. Things may be going too fast. Maybe you’ve slowed down. You might be feeling too much or not enough at all. If Overwhelm isn't the Captain of your ship, then perhaps her twin cousins Avoidance & Procrastination man your sails. The story doesn't have to end this way. Let's flip the script."

"Life can be pretty horrible sometimes, leaving you feeling hopeless, isolated, angry, and afraid. LGBTQ+ persons are at a higher risk for mental health struggles such as depression, anxiety, and suicidality, yet they are less likely to pursue treatment out of fear of rejection. It is my goal to walk beside you through everything life is throwing at you, from mental health concerns, to relational conflicts, to identity exploration, to spirituality questions, providing a safe space for you to face your demons and move towards health. Just by exploring your options, you are already taking a brave first step."

"Are you longing for a space to bring your whole self and know that who you are will be accepted regardless of your unique identity or sexual orientation? Many of us desire safe spaces to explore questions without judgement, coercion, or comparison. You crave the freedom to be your authentic self even if you aren’t quite sure what that looks like just yet. You are discovering that you are becoming someone who is the opposite of who you or your parents or church expected you would be. Are struggling to make who you are align with what you have always believed which no longer fits with the person you are today?"

""There is nothing wrong with you. There is something wrong with what happened to you." The ways we are treated by others can convince us that there is something inherently wrong with who we are. Trauma and negative life experiences teach us what to believe about ourselves and the world around us, but sometimes they inform us inaccurately. Whether you've experienced abuse, difficult relationships, loss, or grief, I would love the opportunity to join you as you rediscover who you are and walk into healing and wholeness."
