Life can be difficult in a variety of ways and deciding to seek mental health support can be daunting. I aim to meet you where you are at in life and be present alongside you on your journey. Whatever path you are on, I am here to offer support along the way. I hope to help my clients reach empowerment to make positive changes in their lives. I believe in the abilities humans hold inside and find it important to validate their experience. Asking for support is a sign of real strength and reinforces the value of human connection. My belief is that the therapeutic process leads one to adapt, transform, accept, and grow within oneself.
I work from the Humanistic Approach and the Existential theory of psychology. This modality values the unique individual experience, the wholeness of the self, and the journey of searching for meaning and purpose. I utilize talk, meditation, and experiential tools to help clients on their journeys.
When life feels heavy, overwhelming, exhausting, or out of control, therapy can offer peace and rejuvenation. I am honored to be able to be on your journey with you towards healing. Please reach out if you need some support and when you do, take the time to recognize and honor within yourself the strength it took to take such a huge step.

I've worked with and known Makayla for several years. I had the wonderful opportunity to provide supervision while she was a plpc and I can definitively say I would recommend her to anyone that I care about that would be in need of counseling services!
