I work with a range of clients and issues, but specialize in dissociation and complex trauma in addition to work with teens, young adults, and the LGBTQIA+ community. My biggest strengths as a counselor are my empathy and open-mindedness. I meet clients where they are at, tailoring our work to your preferences and needs, whether you would benefit most from talk therapy, skill building, trauma processing, or a combination of these. This supports building individualized treatment plans and applying creative, validating techniques.

Life is filled with many different seasons. Some of those seasons can be messy, stressful, confusing, or exhausting. When we walk through difficult seasons, sometimes we need someone walking alongside us. My personal and professional experiences have led me to systemic view of whole-body health, meaning that physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health are deeply intertwined. With this focus, I seek to help individuals of all ages engage how this is at play in their individual lives. If you're in a difficult season, I would be glad to journey with you towards whole person growth!

You may be afraid of reaching out and asking for help. Maybe you think your situation is hopeless. You could be worried about how you will be perceived if you come to counseling. Deciding to come to therapy is not always easy and it is not always comfortable, but I consider it an honor when my clients allow me to walk alongside them through difficult times and feelings. I seek to provide a judgment free, warm, open and honest office environment. I enjoy celebrating and focusing on small victories with my clients and believe that change is possible.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process; the therapist must be serious and respectful and possess a solid reservoir of knowledge about the human condition. The therapy-seeker must, in addition to wanting symptom relief, bring to the process his or her curiosity and some desire for increased self awareness. People come to psychotherapy in emotional turmoil and/or pain. While this is usually the first focus, quickly it will become important to try to understand one's personality style, one's relationship patterns and the roots of these patterns, one's thinking style and the characteristic way one goes about managing, deflecting or enacting emotional storms.
