We all experience times of stress, fear, loneliness and sadness. Worries and "what if's" can keep us up at night. But when these things start to affect our overall well being and daily functioning, help from a professional can be beneficial. I can work with you in these difficult times and provide support and tools necessary for healing.I hope you will find my office safe, welcoming, nonjudgemental and a place where you can talk through what's bothering you.
I believe in the importance of treating the whole person: body, mind, spirit. My approach is empowering you to make your own decisions, to help you set your own goals and to walk with you on your journey to health.
I have a heart for people who are overwhelmed with life's experiences and struggling to cope and move forward to a healthier place. I feel people need to know there is someone in their corner, willing to listen, and help them find a place of feeling stronger, more in control and capable of managing life's difficulties. In my experience I have found that, in most situations, by the time someone reaches out to a counselor, they have already tried to self-heal and are in a place where they can only see one thing: the problem. I find great value in helping people learn ways to cope, regain their perspective, and feel worthy again.
Anxiety and depression, as well as life transitions can cause you to feel alone in your journey.

As a counselor, I would like to welcome the opportunity to work with you in making the changes. I will provide guidance in a nonjudgemental and a safe environment where you can feel empowered to find clarity and self-awareness to make the needed and wanted changes.

Whether you're struggling to adjust to current life challenges, having difficulty in relationship, or in need of healing early emotional wounds and/or trauma, finding the right therapist can help make the difference between surviving and thriving. Healing often begins with connection, and it's my goal to provide a supportive, compassionate space where you can become open to the process of healing and work toward positive change.
I work with clients wanting to heal from all kinds of painful experiences and challenges in their lives. Often what brings someone into therapy, their current struggles, are symptoms of an underlying unresolved experience which has thrown life out of balance. Anxiety and depression, for example, frequently are a pattern of being stuck in a state of imbalance, following a significant loss, heartbreak or trauma. The goal of therapy is to restore the natural integrity and balance within clients, empowering them to lead creative and fulfilling lives.

“Has life got you down?” That classic question that we all come back to when things just seem a bit too crazy. The question that we’ve heard so many times, even when we were a kid. So let me ask you, has life got you down? Do you feel like your life has transitioned to a place where you feel lost, alone, or quite like nobody really understands what it’s like to be in your shoes? Has anxiety, depression, relational issues or trauma, family conflict or parenting issues beaten you down? Let me ask you one last question: is the idea of therapy terrifying? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please believe me, there’s a way.
As humans, we are wired to seek out pleasurable and passionate experiences, but often in this pursuit, something gets in the way of our enjoyment: shame, stigma, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues...the list goes on. I believe sexuality is a very important part of life, but often we experience mental and emotional struggles associated with who we're having sex with, how often, and how we do it. As a sex-positive and LGBTQIA+ allied counselor, I am passionate about empowering my clients to live their most authentic lives, free of shame, doubt, and the other things that get in the way of our pursuit of pleasure.
