I love that my profession allows me to connect with a wide array of people. I work with individuals ranging from late adolescence to late adulthood. I also provide family sessions for my clients, as needed. Hearing people's experiences throughout my time as a counselor has shown me how resilient people can be, and it's truly inspiring. I enjoy working with motivated clients who are ready and willing to make changes and break out of unhealthy patterns.

I’m here to help clients with various mental health needs - from depression and anxiety to trauma and relationship issues. The most important part of therapy is the client-therapist relationship and I strive to build those relationships so my clients can be successful in their mental health journey. Many of my clients come to me with little hope for the future and I want to partner with them for a positive experience.

I have experience working with a variety of concerns such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, trauma, religious trauma, substance abuse, and others. I like working with a wide range of individuals who are open to and motivated to change. I have worked in the medical field in some capacity for almost 10 years and understand the unique challenges that those in that field face. I understand how compassion fatigue and secondary traumatic stress can impact those individuals. I currently only work with adults (18+).

Life is an adventure with rocky roads, potholes, cliffs and smoother roads. You are worthy of taking control of the wheel and I am here to help guide you through the adventure. I adapt my therapeutic style to the needs of my clients by going as quickly or as slow as you need. Some days you may just need an ear and not be able to, or willing to, do anything else. Other days you may be ready and willing to move forward toward your goals. Either is perfectly okay.

There's no "Just snap out of it!" this time... You've come to realize that you need some help. In the past you have successfully stuffed down troubling memories and emotions but this time it’s different. You're tired of the anxious feelings, disturbing dreams, flashbacks, overwhelm, fatigue(!), and daily mental cloudiness taking its toll. And the impact on your relationships and peace of mind is maddening! Add in well-intentioned friends and family who just seem to make you feel worse - ugh! You're desperate to feel better but don't even know where to begin.

My ideal client is one who is aware that they need to do something different but aren't quite sure what the next step is. This could be a life transition from adolescence to adulthood, or a couple who struggles with communication. It could be more intense like a couple who is in the middle of despair or broken trust, or an individual or child who has experienced something traumatic that has changed their whole world. All these individuals are looking for ways to regain their life and become who they believe themselves to be.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
