I have 25 years of experience working with individuals, families and children. We all have struggles in life. I personally believe that everyone can benefit from therapy. Every person's struggle presents an opportunity to make life changes. Sometimes it's hard to determine which road to take or even how to carry on in life. Good support and a therapist who accepts you with respect and dignity, presents as non-judgmental and objective, can help you clarify your needs, goals, and wants. You will move forward and figure out how to become your best self. Then, you can learn to use some of these techniques yourself!

I have worked in this community since 1974. I believe everyone has the capacity to live a happy and fulfilling life. Professional counselors can help find a path through serious emotional disturbances, or a hard time in life, or heal wounds from abuse or other problems. People may seek counseling to embrace their growth and make life better. I work on the principle of a balanced life, taking responsibility for one's self, engaging support, and trusting one's self.

As a therapist, my purpose is to provide a safe place to collaboratively work towards change by guiding, supporting, and providing therapy services that fit your specific mental health needs. I feel the client-counselor relationship and trust built during therapy plays a fundamental role in the therapy process. The counseling orientation is “person-centered”, which means I have great respect for your autonomy and your ability to discern your own path, solutions and direction in life. My role is to assist you in uncovering those answers and support your healing and development with “unconditional positive regard”.

I am not afraid of hearing the hard truths that you don't share with others. I find it an honor and a privilege to come along side someone who trusts me enough to share their life, the good and the bad. I have supported people who have experienced things that they believe others think to be unreal, people who believe there is no reason to keep living, people who partake in activities they know are not good for them, people who struggle to have healthy relationships, and people that have been living in darkness. I want to help you break away from that darkness. I want to provide a space that fosters security, hope, and healing.

**Note: I am not currently taking new clients** I work with people who feel overwhelmed--by work, big transitions, relationships, family, life. My approach is gentle, non-judgmental, and deep. I enjoy helping clients become more fully aware of themselves and of the patterns that hold them back in life, and working with them to feel more grounded and connected with themselves and with others. Many of my clients are people who are in helping professions or caretaking roles. Many are women or non-binary individuals, and are longing to feel more at home in their own skin and more confident in their own strength, beauty, and wisdom.

**FULL* Today you may not feel strong or capable. Your relationships are failing, you have lost sight of who you are, and your life is in chaos. You feel completely broken, lost, and incapable of finding your way back to the light. When you look in the mirror you don’t even recognize the person staring back at you. You look at your partner and feel like you are staring at a stranger. How did it get to this point? This is not what you had in mind. You have struggled, you have been hurt, you have faced the scary things in life and just want to feel alive and strong again. You see your child hurting & just want to make it better
