It is common for people to feel overwhelmed, helpless, and even at times hopeless, leading to a sense of being “stuck”. I strive to meet each person where they are and establish a comfortable, trusting, non-judgmental environment so you can explore paths to working through difficult situations and foster a greater sense of meaning, personal growth, and control over your life. My approach focuses on treating the person as a whole and recognizes the uniqueness and impact of your lived experience.

**Accepting new clients. Therapy, by nature, can be hard. It can be scary, overwhelming, and anxiety-inducing; you are essentially vocalizing (to a stranger!) your challenges, weaknesses, mistakes, and insecurities. And sometimes that needs to happen to grow. My mantra over the last year has been to evolve or repeat. That’s it. Evolve or repeat. Frequently we establish and maintain patterns of thoughts and behaviors, based on past experiences and memories of which are unhealthy and unproductive. These patterns and cycles are the root to unhappiness.
