I work with folks who are feeling lost. Lots of things can make us feel this way: Excessive stress, life transitions, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, self-judgement, trauma responses, suicidal thoughts... The list could go on. What these experiences have in common is they get in the way of us being the version of ourselves that we want to be. Another thing they have in common? They don't have to stay in our way.
It is very important to me that my clients feel supported and able to be their full and most authentic self; after all, if you don't feel able to be real, how can we get real? Also, our work should feel tailored to you. Is there a song that captures your experience, a series of thoughts you want to dissect, a weird dream you want to discuss? Let's do it.
The journey of wellness can sometimes be a tough or even scary one. However, you do not have to make it alone. If you're asking questions like, "who am I? Who do I want to be? What can I do? Where do I even begin?" Well, one place could be in counseling with me. If you're reading this: Best wishes, truly, and I hope you find the right clinician for you.

I work with folks who tend to feel lost in some way. Our initial sessions will focus on self-exploration and figuring out the best way for you to become the person you want to be. We will do this in whatever way feels right for you, whether it's discussion, music, or anything else. I want every client to know I have their back and have at least one meaningful moment or take-away from each session.

I use an existential-humanistic perspective in practice, which means I focus on big questions in life and value a good relationship with my clients. I am also integrative, meaning I am flexible and collaborative in meeting the needs of my clients as they define them. During our work together, we'll dig deep, figure out who you are, who you want to be, and how to become that version of yourself.
