About

Life is hard, and none of us escape unscathed. We are all bruised and broken in some way. If we are fortunate, we have friends and family who walk beside us through the difficult times. Even so, we sometimes feel alone and at a loss as to how to move forward. We need further support from a trained professional who will walk beside us; offering support, empathy, insight, and encouragement. This is therapy. Counseling is one the great passions of my life. I have been counseling for almost 20 years and have wide and varied experience. I counsel all ages and use a variety of treatment methods tailored to each individual I see.
Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD (trauma), grief, life changes, ADHD, anger, relationship issues, addiction, or parenting. I am here and can help. The idea of therapy can be intimidating, unsettling, and even scary. It requires courage to look at our brokenness & recognize we need help. Vulnerability is not for the faint of heart.
It asks us to be open and fully seen, and it risks further hurt, judgment, and rejection. So, I understand that walking through my door and being willing to truly be vulnerable is far from easy. If you are reading this, you've already taken the first step. Well done! Now, be brave, take the next step and contact me. Hope, healing, and joy await you.
