Are you a student athlete who desires to do well on & off the field? You can likely relate to this unique student athlete challenge: You’re a student of the game AND you’re a full-time academic student. You're putting in the work on the field and in the classroom. Adding to this, you're facing the unexpected challenges of 2020. It can be unsettling. Everything seems a little up in the air. Season postponed, COVID testing, not getting the playing time you expected, adjusting to new teammates/coaching styles or generally feeling stuck in your head. You may be facing some challenges, but you've got grit. You're a goal getter.

I believe that each of us are not only wired for struggle, but, even more importantly, we are also wired to overcome those struggles. The active support, care, and skills available through a counseling relationship can be the most effective tools we use to battle against life's adversities. I value the courage and vulnerability it takes to enter into a counseling relationship. As someone who has experienced 'bad' counseling, I place high value on the individuality of each client and view them as the expert of their experience. I can help you explore new perspectives, offer new skills, and challenge you towards your goals.
