The clients I serve are often at a crossroads in their life story and unsure of how to close one chapter and begin anew. Clients I enjoy working with recognize that counseling continues outside of the session in self reflection, exploring behavior change, and shifting how we think and relate to ourselves. I find that counseling helps meet goals and needs as diverse as the client, and sometimes goals arise throughout the course of the relationship. No one needs a "good reason" to come to counseling, for the desire to reach out and try will always be sufficient.

My area of expertise is helping women struggling with OCD and anxiety. At the start of therapy, my clients feel caught up in a loop of worry, rumination, and anxiety. They try to manage their anxiety with internet searches, replaying events, or trying to understand what their thoughts mean. They have trouble turning off their minds before bed. At times they feel hopeless and wonder how they'll ever get out the anxiety they're dealing with. If this sounds familiar, I can help. My goal is to help clients develop new skills to cope with uncertainty, get unstuck from thought spirals, and feel present and connected in their lives.

For young adults navigating the exciting, messy work of self discovery, it can be tempting to search for direction, acceptance, & approval from everyone EXCEPT ourselves. Maybe it's the pressure to be perfect, obsessing about food & body image, or simply trying to be who others want you to be... but shrinking yourself mentally or physically to fit arbitrary standards is not only exhausting, it sacrifices your independence & self worth. Imagine how powerful it could feel to embrace uncertainty, to explore what matters most to you, & amplify your inner compass to cultivate a life of resilience, creativity, authenticity, & joy.
