The choice to enter into your story is admirable. Examining past wounds and current patterns is brave and risky. I count it a privilege to partner with clients as we work toward health and freedom. You can expect a safe and compassionate space to engage your pain, fears, passion, desires and self. I collaborate with clients to address areas of struggle, need and strength. I delight in pointing clients toward the hope that pain does not have the final say.

My approach to therapy combines a cognitive-behavioral framework, trauma-informed perspective, and evidence-based treatments to help clients discover clarity within chaos. The primary disorders I treat are PTSD, depression, and anxiety. I named my practice "Manifest Counseling" because former clients described our work together as a transformative process where they could safely explore who they want to become without fear of judgement. My work is very skills-based and identity-focused. An old mentor of mine said it best: "Therapy is a lot like venting to a bartender. Just with less alcohol and more problem solving."

My counseling practice centers around helping individuals and couples who have experienced sexual trauma in any of its various forms. Whether it be due to recent infidelity, a long history of sexual, physical and emotional betrayal, sexual identity confusion, or present day repercussions of childhood abuse and trauma, I consider it a privilege to walk with clients into the darkness of their stories. I enjoy coming alongside and advocating for those who are tired of just coping, dissatisfied with their quality of life, and desperate for deep change and healing.

**Not accepting new clients at this time.** I love helping clients improve their quality of life, better their relationships, and increase internal connection. In today's society, it is often common to feel disconnected from others and even from ourselves. I want to help you to process relationships, experiences, thoughts, and emotions in order to better understand why you respond, think, or feel the way you do. I love working with individuals, families, and couples, and have experience working with those who have experienced relational or situational traumas and those with eating disorders, mood disorders, or behavioral disorders.

Life can often become overwhelming. If you continue down the path you are headed your overall health and mental well-being most likely will continue if you do not change direction. Often the people and experiences we encounter lead to beliefs about ourselves and the world that aren't accurate. Change is possible; we all have the capability to heal. Creating a non-judgmental space for you to explore, heal, and grow is a priority. Therapy is a highly individualized process; it is all about you and working collaboratively to achieve your goals.
