We tend to think we should be able to go it alone, or talk with a friend,...or just TRY HARDER when life feels overwhelming and difficult to bear. Sometimes these attempts fall short, making it easy to blame ourselves, feel discouraged and disconnect from ourselves and our relationships. Even asking for help seems hard! That's why I am passionate about helping individuals and couples who are courageously finding their way through those tough times. I believe that we all have an internal wellspring of strength, wisdom, and hope - and counseling offers gentle guidance and support to move toward feeling better and more like YOU!

Whether you have tried therapy in the past and are seeking support again, or are just beginning your therapy journey – I’m so glad you are here. I believe healing happens in relationship – to ourselves, to our communities, and to others in our lives who we care deeply for. Through Somatic Mindfulness (body centered), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Self-Compassion based theories, I view my role as a guide along the road back to yourself, the ones you love, and the life you want to feel present in.

People's stories are one of the most valuable things we have in life. If you want to have a meaningful relationship with someone, you need to be able to understand your own story. Helping individuals to develop and enhance their personal stories is at the crux of my work as a therapist. We all have public and private lives, and I believe the power of developing the stories behind these separate selves is how people vividly change their lives.

Therapeutic counseling that works is counseling that supports you to create change, reach your potential, and accomplish your goals. As your counselor, I will join with you to navigate through the things that stand in your way. Barriers to change are different for every person. You may be struggling through depression or anxiety; trying to navigate changes in relationships; isolation; living with trauma; struggling with work, family, or stress; or you are one of the many who simply can’t identify what is getting in the way. My goal is to help you find a path forward and start making the changes that you are seeking!

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.
