About

Chances are, if you're reading this, you are already noticing there are behaviors or patterns in your life you think could be better, and think it could be helpful to talk to someone about them. Someone who's not a friend, parent, teacher, or co-worker; someone who is impartial, someone with nothing to gain from you going one way or another. Engaging in counseling is a brave choice, and I am here to give space to your burdens so that you can continue on your journey that much lighter.
I draw from several different counseling theories including Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing, but strive to be individual and intersectional in my approach with helping clients towards their goals. I find that an eclectic style works best and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to mental health.
I believe that real, sustainable change is not only possible, but achievable in each individual. No matter how stuck we feel or how long problems have sustained, there is a true, authentic self inside each of us. When we quiet the voices of self-doubt and allow that true self a chance to speak, we get that much closer to living full, authentic lives.
