About

My view of counseling is simple, and based upon three core principles: authenticity, (being true to oneself), honesty, and growth. A foundation of truth is solidified by meeting you where you are in your journey. This is accomplished by providing a nonjudgmental ear, and a supportive, safe presence. My goal is for you to feel heard as well as empowered by knowledge and skills to recognize your worth and embody change. I prefer working with adult clients who are ready and willing to put in some real work toward change and self-improvement.
I utilize a trauma informed lens in my sessions to help identify areas that may be related toward difficulties and develop support for future endeavors. I focus first and foremost on developing a therapeutic relationship to create safety for vulnerability. I am EMDR trained and able to conduct sessions virtually.
We may not be able to change the things that have happened to us, but we can certainly grow and heal from them. I view this process as sacred, and consider it an honor to be invited to accompany you on your journey. Also, I may have a pet or two that will join our sessions but no worry, they are trained in confidentiality!
