I provide individual counseling as well as various group opportunities (Spirituality Groups, Coming Out and other LGBTQ Therapy Groups) to assist on your Healing Journey.
I believe that the psychotherapeutic journey is an Inner Journey ~ one in which we're traveling to find that which we have lost ~ in a word, our Selves. While it is usually some form of disillusion - depression, anxiety, relationship pain ~ that brings us into therapy, we discover that we are on a journey to find home ~ a place of safety, of freedom, of rest. Sooner or later, we learn that the home we are searching for is not to be found outside ourselves but, rather, within. If you are ready to deepen in your own journey, I am here to walk with you.

Additionally, as a member of the LGBTQ community, I am passionate about helping people navigate identity and sexuality issues, as well as the complex thoughts and emotions that can come from interesecting sexual and faith indentities.
Experiencing unexplained sources of anxiety can be really scary. Whether you’re an overwhelmed parent of a teen or child, or a young adult struggling with sexual identity exploration within a religious context, or simply feeling like it’s the right time to ask for help, I may be the right fit for you. Not understanding our own behaviors and feelings can be frustrating. Maybe you are having emotional bursts of anxiety that feel like an “overreaction”. Perhaps you have a sense that your past experiences have something to do with your unstable or depressed emotional state, but you are unsure and terrified of where you might begin.

The life of the mind is challenging and complicated, but it should not be an impossible nightmare. The daily struggles we face, relationships, inner self, tasks, education et cetera are real. Those things can weigh one down, but they should not be able to crush. Therapy is not magic, it is not a promise of a life free of challenges. However, it is a promise of companionship. It is the offer to walk with you through those dark, shameful, and sometimes forgotten places in your mind and soul. it is the process of persuading you to change direction. It is the skill needed to gently guide and focus. So, let’s talk.

I use a 30 task treatment model created by Dr. Patrick Carnes to address these issues in a way that makes lives more positive and functional. Through the skills learned in this model, people gain more fulfilling relationships and increased life satisfaction, as well as better decision making.

Therapy provides a safe space to sort through life's problems, receive support and empathy, and ultimately learn how to change to create more peace in your life. By the time we are teens, young adults, or more experienced adults, we can find ourselves stuck in certain thought or behavior patterns that are starting to be problematic. It’s hard to notice the pattern and even harder to learn to break it and try something new. I take incredible joy in working with people to shed light on what’s keeping them stuck and then moving towards more freedom and flexibility in life.
