You have a story to tell. Every chapter of our lives presents new challenges and asking for help can be incredibly tough. Deciding to speak with a therapist sounds so simple, but we all struggle with this simple act of vulnerability. You may be struggling to find a sense of purpose in life, navigating difficult transitions and feel constantly overwhelmed, or making new discoveries about who your identity. I will be there to support you through your journey. Let's begin writing the story of your life you want to tell.
Nobody likes working towards inauthentic or forced objectives and we will work together as a team to create our goals and guide treatment. I work alongside my therapy dog Penny and adjust my approach to each individual client using evidence-based treatments. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents, the queer community, geeky folks, and young adults.
Connecting with your therapist is difficult; I've had a few therapists myself who I did not relate to. Through a strong connection and trust will, you will feel valued, heard, and appreciated as we work towards your personal progress. Let's start today!
