I see individuals as capable of living a full and joyful life. I am here to facilitate the removal of those blocks, caused by past traumas, and / or difficult life transitions, that might be getting in your way. As we work together from a compassionate, strength-based perspective to remove the negative blocks (emotional and mental pain) from your path, life becomes easier and more joyful. As you heal mentally, emotionally and physically you will begin to attract those experiences and relationships into your life that are healthy, more fulfilling & enriching. My master's degree in Counselor Education has prepared me for this work.

**Note: I am not currently accepting new patients.** We are all in trouble. Some of us are anxious, trying to avoid trouble at all costs. Some of us start trouble with loved ones for reasons we can't understand. Some of us get into trouble at school or at work. And many of us are troubled by past traumas that we can't seem to shake. My aim in therapy is to partner with you around your goals and your values, to figure out what's worth your time and trouble. Therapy is a time, just for you, to heal and grow at your own pace.

What change would you like to see in your life? I would like to see you make that change. Individual therapy takes an expert and a consultant. The client is the expert on their own person and life experiences, and the counselor is the consultant who is hired to help identify and problem solve that expert's barriers to success. I specialize in helping people gain emotional stability, a strong sense of identity, and the self-confidence they need to make changes in their lives that they want to make.

***I am not currently accepting new clients.***I believe that therapy is a collaboration. As a therapist my first step is to help clarify why therapy is sought. From there we work together to develop strategies for relief, in the short and long term. My role is to provide information about the treatments that could be pursued; with information and context, one can then make informed choices about the best path forward. Common treatment options include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness interventions. A brief treatment is usually all that is needed, but I offer longer-term depth work when required.
