Therapy is a collaborative process grounded in a working and trusting relationship where both client and therapist engage towards building understanding and movement. I strive to create a safe and compassionate environment where you can explore your issues and increase your well-being while identifying life context that contribute to the challenges you face. We will work to apply contextual aspects, including identities, culture, and community alignments, to illuminate both challenges and potential aspects of resolution.

Life is complicated. Often the difficulties and stress we face create conflict and struggles that need to be shared with others. Through counseling, I believe that clients can find relief from the stress and pain of broken relationships, addiction, past traumas and unidentified emotional and spiritual wounds. I primarily work with adults experiencing anxiety or depression. I also work with people experiencing grief or who have been in abusive relationships. I work collaboratively with clients to help them find peace and rest in the midst of daily life.

Feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or stuck? Do you strive for breakthrough but somehow seem to always fall short? Do you want to finally achieve progress and reach your goals? I can help by utilizing psychological tools to push past these barriers and into a more fulfilled life. As a Christian therapist we can utilize both psychological tools and Christian principles to achieve breakthrough. Too often Christians practice solely from a spiritual perspective and neglect the psychological or worse, deny it exists. I believe both spiritual and psychological can work together.

Each client is the expert of their own experience and carries inherent worth and internal resources that I am honored to witness. I practice from a neuro-affirming, non-pathologizing paradigm, especially enjoying aiding autistic clients to validate and accommodate their authentic selves. I'm queer and agender, and many of my clients are LGBTQIA+, including ace/aro, bi/pan, and trans/nonbinary. <3 I see my clients as complex narrators of their unique stories, often wielding galactic inner landscapes that deserve to be celebrated and lugging burdens that no longer need to be shouldered.

Somewhere along the way you feel you lost yourself. Whether it be in motherhood, wifehood, single-hood, your career, or in relationships. For one reason or another, the person you face in the mirror is not who you thought you would become. That very reason, brought you here and we are so glad you found us. We are here to meet you where you are. True liberation comes when we can accept all of who we are, understanding that every part, no matter how painful, deserves love and care. I help women step into full power by rediscovering self, redefining womanhood, and creating balance to maintain harmony in their lives.
