Does seeking therapy trigger fears in you? Do you think if you allow yourself to be fully known, fears of judgment and shame will surface? These fears are normal. I am in the business of healing, not learning the latest coping skills that "pop psychology" uses as bandages. I am a customer service driven clinician who puts my clients first. Your experience in therapy will be a safe place for your uniqueness without feeling odd or misunderstood. Spiritual formation has been apart of my individual growth therefore I weave it into my therapy in addition to researched based modalities.

Life is not always easy. Sometimes life is challenging because of circumstances related to our actions; sometimes these challenges are a result of circumstances beyond our control. Regardless, these circumstances do not define us. It is, instead, our response to these circumstances that determines our course. My passion is working with individuals and families who are facing these storms. I love walking with my clients through these storms and into a bright new day. It is my hope that each of my clients will learn not just to weather and survive these storms but rather to conquer and overcome them.

Life can be hard. Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed & like you never have enough time for everything. You are worried it may never get better & that you are not enough. You find yourself feeling "off" & might feel depressed and worried. Maybe you have just experienced a huge life transition, maybe you have a trauma history, or maybe you are feeling disheartened but are not sure why. You find yourself having a hard time saying 'no' & are worried what would happened if you really spoke up. You want to feel secure in yourself & be able to enjoy life. You want supportive & thriving relationships. You want to feel better.

Seeking support for life's difficulties can be daunting. Partnering with others as they walk through these difficulties is one of my lifelong passions. Let's begin to investigate your own particular story and see how it can be rewritten. The most important benchmark for each session is establishing an environment of trust and openness. From there, we can work to break through barriers. My goal is to support, educate, counsel and guide you through it all.

From the outside looking in, people see someone who “has it together.” Perhaps this is related to your family, job, marriage or community. From the inside looking out, you see a world full of pressures, expectations and a need to cultivate happiness for those in your life, sometimes at the expense of your own sanity. I often hear from clients that they feel “stuck” in the same cycle of life and can’t seem to find satisfaction, despite having many of life’s “checkboxes” marked off. Experiences of chronic anxiety and worry are common though they keep moving through the motions of life.
