About

I'm here to offer a safe, comfortable, accepting environment to process your goals, needs, and challenges. I affirm and celebrate everyone's identity and values. Your goals are the ones that matter in therapy. I want you to be comfortable while connecting with someone who authentically cares about you. I believe we are all doing the best we can. Whether age 2, age 102, or anywhere in between, I am here to support you. I love working with children, teens, and adults on the autism spectrum. I have also worked as a grief counselor with Hospice, and walked beside many people as they travel through the grief process.
I offer unconditional positive regard, and strive to make the counseling experience a comfortable one for you. Grief is an intense process. It helps to have someone to talk with who isn’t trying to “fix” you. I also work with children, teens, and adults on the autism spectrum. I am the mom of an adult with autism, and have walked that journey for 18 years.
I can adjust to your communication style. The focus is on your goals and desires. I’m here to support you in a safe environment. I would love to have the honor of providing counseling to you. Please call me for a free, no obligation, 15 min phone or text consultation, and see if I'm a good fit for your needs. No judgement here; I've got your back.
