I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

I believe that everyone does the best that they can with the tools that they have, but sometimes approaches that have served them in the past are no longer effective and they can get stuck in a rut. If you are feeling stuck in parts of your life, you have come to the right place! I am passionate about working with adults and emerging adults with diverse identities in a broad range of life circumstances. I have experience working in community mental health and college counseling settings with individuals across the lifespan.

I recognize the uniqueness of each person, couple, adolescent, and family. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment where one’s true self is free to be expressed. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship which can be curative in itself, which is why it is important to me to bring my most genuine self in order to have an authentic experience in session with my clients. Once the foundation has been set, I build on that relationship and incorporate counseling skills and techniques to gently guide and challenge my clients to help them to meet their therapeutic goals.

As a caregiver, you want a meaningful relationship with your child that helps them to thrive, succeed and feel safe. But parenting can be difficult and feel overwhelming! Your child’s behavior may be impacting your relationships, work, and sleep. You may even feel stuck trying to figure out how to best connect with your child to help them grow. When I work with families, I meet with the caregiver first to gain a deeper understanding of the current challenges you are experiencing. Ultimately, you are the expert of your child, so together we will set goals and work together every step of the way.

My work as a counselor draws from values of justice and creativity. I support clients in moving toward change and growth, at a pace they choose. I often hear from people who are concerned that their experiences aren’t bad enough for counseling or that talking about hard experiences would be like opening an old wound. Anyone can benefit from meeting with a counselor, and everyone deserves the type of healing that feels right for them. I want you to get the counseling experience you are looking for (even if you aren’t sure what that is yet). I am happy to communicate by phone or email to answer any questions you might have.

Often times, a crisis occurs when a client experiences a duality between his or her inner world and the external environment in which he or she lives in. This client may be going through a life transition related to loss of a loved one, job loss, aging, or even changes in health conditions. He or she may even be struggling internally to make a decision more aligned with their authentic selves such as gender, relationship styles, and vocational interests. The goal for this client is to achieve quality of life and fulfillment without denying himself or herself of his or her true identity and human condition.

Therapy is a process and it can be difficult for people to navigate; I hope to ease the stress of this process and make life easier for you. It's incredibly hard to reach out for support when you feel at your most vulnerable or are overwhelmed. Many folks need a listening ear or an objective third-party who doesn't pass judgement...and that's where I come in. I'm here to: help you process what's going on in your life (or maybe even that deep stuff from childhood...?), offer clarity, provide coping skills, and support you.
