Life can sometimes seem like just too much. Stressors like relationships, friendships, school, work, and family obligations can become too heavy to bear. Maybe there is a trauma you have carried for years that you still aren't quite sure how to handle. Maybe you are questioning aspects of your identity and you aren't sure where to turn to speak honestly about them. Or, maybe you just need someone to talk to who can help you process your daily life. That's where counseling can come in.
I offer a welcoming, judgment-free space for you to bring all of who you are to the table! Together, we will discuss your struggles and strengths, and come up with new and effective ways to cope with the stressors you may be facing. I aim to be culturally competent and sensitive, and strive to offer a safe space for individuals of all backgrounds.
Counseling offers a space for you to be your most honest self without fear of judgment. If you are ready to make a change in your life for the better, or if you are just curious about what counseling is like, please reach out to me to schedule an appointment or brief consultation. I look forward to hearing from you; be well! NCC: 1657790 APC: APC008752

I work with clients to see what strategies will work best for them based on their symptoms and life circumstances. This may include homework such as practicing a certain technique, completing worksheets related to what we are working on together, or taking specific steps towards a goal we have established. Much of my work is focused on mindfulness and emotional regulation.

My initial sessions are dedicated to getting to know you in the context of your full life experience, and what has brought you to counseling at this time. We will work together to identify long- and short-term goals for our work. My work is typically based in Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, and Attachment theories, but I also strive to provide strategies that best fit my clients' lifestyles.
