About

Your feelings of sadness, anxiety, and overwhelm are too much to ignore and you just want to be happy. I am here to help you find a way forward. In the last 21 years of counseling, I have worked with a diverse group of amazing clients - from troubled teens, parents dealing with life transitions and divorce, young adults seeking clarity and direction, to those recovering from suicide attempts, chronic anxiety and depression, addictions, combat and childhood traumas, complicated grief, and career burnout. I look forward to helping each new client clarify their goals and find their unique path to recovery, peace, and acceptance.
My two areas of specialty are in treating depression and traumatic stress. I was recently certified to treat a broad range of traumas. Additionally, I am trained as a “LGBTQ affirming provider”, along with being personally aware of and at home in this community. I enjoy helping individuals come to accept and grow in compassion for their authentic selves.
I am trustworthy and my bar for professional standards is set at excellent. I use evidence-based therapies with a creative, collaborative style. I genuinely admire the strengths and survival strategies of my clients. My aim is to equip/empower them to find self-worth, achieve wellbeing, and build resilience for what's ahead. Call or email for a free consult.
