About

Are you tired of just managing symptoms that always seem to return? Have you found yourself saying, “maybe I’m just chronically anxious”? Do you find yourself saying, I know this is true, but I still feel another way? I’m here to help you reclaim your identity and discover what a life worth living looks like for you! I believe in moving past managing symptoms and really understanding where these stem from. We do this by creating an individualized approach to counseling that makes sense to you, incorporating resources for temporary relief while digging into the root of these concerns to create real change.
I support people in creating the change they want to see in their life. I believe a huge part in achieving desired change is finding an approach to therapy that speaks to you and that uses your strengths & resiliencies. I integrate multiple treatment approaches as appropriate in order for you to feel heard and to make the progress you are seeking.
I believe everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life - not weighed down by crushing thoughts or plagued by unresolved trauma. And I bet that sounds impossible right now - but it's not! I continue to learn & grow in my own wellness journey every day, and I would love to support you in yours. I hope you reach out today so you can see for yourself!
