Do you feel unheard in your relationships? You may be looking for a new path forward, even while you appreciate for all the ways you have helped yourself and been helped by others along the way. Similarly, you may also be looking for help for your child or teen who is struggling in some of these ways.

My role as a counselor is to walk alongside you and assist you in uncovering and discovering what is true for you and the beliefs you hold about yourself that may or may not serve you well at this point in your life. Together we will look at the symptoms (often defined as problems) that are interfering with your life and your goals, and explore ways to manifest a more authentic and satisfying life that is consistent with your own unique psycho, social, physical and spiritual values. My style as a therapist is compassionate, direct, non-judgmental, and solution focused.

I believe that we are all made for relationship with one another. Relationships are where we learn about love, comfort, hope, courage, joy, and empathy. They are also where we unfortunately learn about betrayal, fear, rejection, abandonment, abuse, and pain. These experiences and connections with others shape us into who we are. They are also the place where real change and healing can happen. I hope to come alongside you as an empathetic and trustworthy listener to help you make sense of unhealthy patterns that have kept you stuck and to provide real hope, growth, and change in the context of healthy relationship.

My clients often begin therapy citing anxious and/or depressive symptoms emerging from more complex concerns that challenge their pursuits of meaningful living. They may have difficulties managing stress related to their relationships, work or study, and/or identity. Some struggle with the loss of someone or something important to them. Others may feel rudderless, uncertain about how to steer their life in a more fulfilling direction. In all cases I aim to provide a warm, nonjudgmental, and authentic relationship that encourages growth through the exploration of each client's sense of who they are and who they want to become.

Therapy is a creative, supportive, collaborative process that helps us learn new ways of perceiving a problem, develop healthy coping skills, find healthy ways of being with the people in our lives, and learn about ourselves. We might need an empathetic ear, or we might need specific tools. Either way, therapy empowers us and helps us remember our personal strengths and what we stand for. We are all different; each person's gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, race, religion, and health impact how he or she will perceive an issue. I believe the therapeutic approach, like the people who seek therapy, should be unique.
