There is much to be said of the idea that a therapist should be a “good fit.” If you don’t feel there is a connection to build on and lessons to be learned, there is no harm in stating that truth and moving on. I’ve worked with people for a few months and some for many years. It’s important to feel you are getting something from your therapy. Therapeutic relationships perform the best when both therapist and client are mutually invested in the work. I deeply appreciate clients who commit and face the sometimes-painful work of therapy, knowing they are working toward a better day, a better life.

There is a universal human need for our stories to be told, heard, and understood. Perhaps your story has painful memories that have caused anxiety, stress, and depression to enter your life. Maybe your family or personal relationships have hurt you and you desire to have healthier relationships. It is my goal as a therapist to provide you with a safe place to explore and process your past and present stories with the intention of accessing insight, healing, and positive change. There’s some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for- J.R.R. Tolkien

Whether you are seeking help for yourself, your teen, or your family, you've come to the right place. If you are ready to make some changes and figure out the core of what is causing the distress, disruption, or unease, we can work together to figure out the best ways to help you (or your teen) move forward in a healthy way. So many times, we spin in circles trying to figure out which direction to go.  People get caught in their own heads, so it's hard to make sense of all of the thoughts/feelings. You no longer need to be trapped in that cycle alone. We can work together to pick out the pieces that will help you create balance.

Welcome to my reimagined counseling practice--now, purely virtual! Do you feel like a square peg in a round hole? Are you out of touch with who you are and what you really want? Do you sometimes lie awake nights worrying, "Is this IT?" You know you need a change, but you're not sure how to take the first step. Somewhere along the way, you may have started doing what others thought was best for you instead of trusting your own gut. Perhaps you're unhappy because you and your job aren't a good fit. Maybe you feel overwhelmed with stress from all sides.

If you are dealing with anxiety, poor body image, trust or intimacy issues, suicidal thoughts, mood swings, a complicated relationship with eating, and recent or past traumas, I want you to know that feeling grounded and connected is within reach. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families with these exact concerns for years. Your life's problems may seem impossible or difficult to overcome, and you may feel anxious about "explaining it all" to a therapist who is also a stranger. My goal is to lay those fears to rest.

Imagine yourself as a writer, carefully crafting the story of your life. What important events and experiences stand out, and what effect does your supporting cast have on you? Is your story unfolding the way you want it to? For most of us, the answers to these questions aren't always clear. We're often too entrenched in our own story to be our own author. Experiences such as navigating a new life transition and developing a more loving relationship with yourself can be tough.

Hey, welcome. I know the process of trying to find the right therapist can feel overwhelming. When I’ve looked for therapists for myself or as referrals for others, what I generally want to know is who the therapist is, what kind of person they are. Will they get me? Will they judge me? Are they going to actually call me on my stuff, but, in a nice way? These questions make sense. Therapy is vulnerable, it can be raw and real in ways we generally aren’t, even in very close relationships. Change is often hard and sometimes really scary but if you’re ready, I will meet you there.
