I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years and I have worked in a variety of settings including psychiatric hospitals, community mental health, employee assistance, and now private practice. What I love most about what I do is learning and understanding my clients' individual histories and current life situations. Therapy is not a "one size fits all" treatment plan, everyone's story is unique and their story has to be heard. My clients and I work as a team to figure out what the goals of therapy are and to try to reach those goals as best as we can. My job is to guide, not lead, a client on their journey.

Are you feeling stuck, and unsure how to move forward? Whether it be one big event or many smaller things piling up over time, it can be hard trying to figure out where to start. Everyone could use some extra support from time to time, and it takes a lot of courage to take the first step and talking about the struggles in your life. My specialty is working with individuals and couples in creating a supportive environment to process troubling areas and provide opportunities to improve communication skills and achieve your goals. I look forward to working alongside you as you work to achieve your goals!

I began as a life coach and became a therapist in 2017 because I wanted to help people in a deeper way. I adjust to your pace: maybe you are coming in with a concern about something that happened recently and you just want another person's insight on it; or maybe you have past trauma that you'd like to finally unhook from. With deeper work, I like to get an idea of your whole picture -- emotionally, psychologically and spiritually -- so I can help you reach whatever goal or resolve whatever issue you come in with.

**2021 Update: I am very busy and cannot regularly accept new clients. Please check for openings during your availability, or to be put on a waitlist.** To stay true to my specialization, I only accept new clients for relationship counseling purposes (or through a personalized referral). This can be for couples counseling, individual counseling, or family therapy that centers around relationship issues. I am most passionate about my work, and more effective, when focusing on these specializations. I also work with many "nontraditional" relationship structures (LGBTQ, non-monogamy, kink, etc), so those are also welcome as a good fit.

Combined with my education, humor and understanding of human behavior, your goals can be met in a brief, solution-focused amount of time.

I believe that focusing on your felt-sense and physical experience of life provides a more comprehensive healing approach. Using awareness of the sensation cues our bodies send us can allow us the presence of mind to sit with and move through our current issues and past traumas with our own internal wisdom and gentleness. Approaching yourself with curiosity, sensing, and awareness will allow release, recognition, and a sense of safety moving forward. I approach each session from a body-based perspective, bringing your awareness to what your body remembers alongside the narrative addressed within talk therapy.
