Changes and challenges are an unavoidable part of life. Maybe you are managing a difficult life transition, coping with stress or anxiety, overcoming depression, or restoring a relationship with a loved one—whatever the difficulty, therapy can offer clarity and direction. Sometimes getting help makes the journey less lonely and confusing. Therapy is a collaboration between counselor and client and together we will figure out how best to help you.
I work with couples and individuals of all backgrounds. Whatever your history, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual identity, you are invited to reach out and allow me to accompany you on your healing journey.
My goal is to offer a warm and welcoming space where you will be heard and accepted, where you can be open and vulnerable without fear of judgement, and where you can reflect and receive support, learn skills, and gain insights to help you move forward in your life.
