People seek counseling when situations either exceed their resources and/or when they're unsure of how to proceed. This is stressful and counseling is a safe place to talk about challenges and create solutions. It is a time to examine patterns of thinking or behavior connected to the discomfort or depression. The impact of traumatic experiences can not be underestimated, from the view of "It's not what's wrong with you, it's what happened to you.". My goal is to be that professional consultant who provides guidance and hope when people find themselves in times of discomfort.

Perhaps you are considering therapy with a clear idea of what you want to accomplish or rather a general sense of wanting something to be different. As much as the reasons for starting therapy vary, the approach to working together is also unique. Often the need to feel heard and understood becomes the agency for change. Other times the need for specific skills to get through a challenging situation is what's desired most. I work to put the puzzle pieces of your experiences together in a way that makes sense. I look forward to helping you feel better in a world that can have unexpected twists, roadblocks, and bumps along the way.

I wonder if you are here because you continue to find yourself playing out the same behaviors and relational patterns over and over and over again and feel like you are stuck. Typically we learn shame from our past relationships or even a negative relationship to self. You may find yourself in the debilitating cycle of addiction, buried in shame and hitting the same wall again and again. It’s a difficult venture to pursue something other, something new. Finding peace and healing can be excruciating, but we can find true beauty from ashes and create a different narrative to your life journey.

Life is a journey, and no one should travel it alone. Our journey brings many joys and trials. As humans we are created for relationships and community, yet many of us find ourselves, at times, feeling alone or misunderstood. It is during these moments that we feel hopeless, isolated, and that no one could possibly understand what we are going through or feeling. Please know that you are not alone and there is HOPE! People bring us to hurt and people bring us to healing. It is my life passion to bring others to HOPE and lifelong healing.
