I believe identity is a critical part of self-understanding and healing. For this reason, I enjoy working with folks who are looking to explore their identities which might include sexuality, gender, race, religion, physical and mental ability, and roles in society. I am cognizant that our identities shape our personal and lived experiences in the world, and this continually impacts how and what we need to heal. I approach therapy from a non-religious standpoint, but have a deep interest in how religion impacts people, including ways that it can act as a source of trauma, while also acknowledging that it can be a source of support.

Most people are doing the best they can in life with the skills they have available. When life becomes overwhelming, unbearable, or unfulfilling, counseling can help you find & experience the joy & love you desire - even in the face of adversity. Counseling can be helpful when you are ready to make changes in your life and when you desire someone to journey with you to realize your best self. In our work together, we will collaborate to set goals that you want to achieve. For some, this may be a change in how you are thinking and feeling. For others, you might be ready to work to find deeper healing through processing your trauma.

I believe that everyone has the potential to grow and learn. Friends and family are great support at times, but sometimes people can benefit from more. I often tell people therapy is a little bit like having a coach. It is someone to set goals with, someone to hold you accountable, someone to cheer you on and help you navigate the road map of life. It is my goal to help you get on the track that is best suited for you and your family, and come up with a plan to help you stay the course!

Relationships can be difficult. I work with clients to develop and execute plans to help them reach the goals they would like to achieve; both individually and within the context of their relationships. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I work hard to ensure my clients feel comfortable, well informed about their treatment goals and progress, and that the therapeutic methods being used align the two. In this space of authenticity and safety, clients are able to reach the insight and connection they've been missing in their relationships with themselves, their partners, and others.

Are you overwhelmed but acting like everything is okay? Are you worried that people will see you aren't as put together as they think? I work with "strong" individuals who present as if everything is fine but inside, they're feeling anxious, stressed, or depressed. Hiding behind the “everything is fine” mask doesn't make life easier. Behind your mask you are suffering in silence. Being "strong" when things are falling apart is exhausting and can prevent you from seeking/receiving help during challenging times. Your pain is real. Your feelings matter. You are not stuck in this rut. You can feel better and I'd like to help!
