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!

The decision to come to counseling is an important step. Often we feel alone in our struggles and the sense of isolation can drive us deeper into fear and shame. Coming to counseling and allowing ourselves to be known takes tremendous courage. Through my own experiences in counseling and in counseling others, I have come to believe that hope, redemption, and restoration can become a part of every person’s story. My approach to counseling is collaborative, holistic, and interactive. I have experience working with clients in most stages of life including individuals, couples, families, and adolescents.

My clients often are experiencing a life that feels without meaning and control. A life that is filled with chronic stress. This stress results from conflict in our relationships and multiple roles in life. At other times,this stress is residue from unresolved life events that have depleted the ability to see through a lens of love. Life then naturally becomes driven by fear. If you are seeking to learn a way to create a life that feels worth living, despite any circumstance. I can teach you the way. The majority of my clients are experiencing anxiety, anger and depression in their daily life.

From professional and personal experience, I know that life does not always go as planned. I am passionate about helping individuals work through unexpected events, as well as past experiences that may be causing current issues and disconnect in life. As I work with individuals, one of my primary goals is to help my clients feel heard, seen, and respected. I take on a humanistic perspective meaning that I believe that everyone has the potential to change and we all have a desire to feel worthy, needed and loved. I believe that it is important to help people develop a lifestyle that matches one’s values and beliefs.

I see individuals ages 8-26. I offer individual and family therapy sessions. My sessions are very unique in that I allow a place for kiddos to be kiddos. My favorite part of my job is when a client tells me, "I never thought therapy could be like this." or "This makes so much sense." Kiddos are in a state of development that can be either extremely scary or exciting. What makes the difference is when they and loved ones understand this process on a cognitive, emotional, and physiological level. Then behaviors and responses become more clear and how to handle them becomes more effective.

I work with adults, teens, preteens, and children starting at 6 years old. Many of my clients are looking for coping skills to aid with mood disorders, conduct issues, or impulse-control disorders, such as anxiety, depression, behavior problems, and ADHD. Some want to work through trauma or grief. Others have less common problems. However, all are looking to make a change, but they do not know how to or do not want to do it on their own.

We all face different challenges in life and respond to them in our own ways. As such, each approach in treatment should be unique and person centered. My goal is to help each person along their journey in processing and overcoming their unique challenges so that they can thrive on their own.

My main focus in therapy is to build and maintain a warm, safe environment in which the client can process his or her life—its obstacles, its traumas and its opportunities for growth. Seeing life and people as wonderfully complex and multifaceted, I simply look through wide-angle lenses at the ways in which one’s well-being may be being inhibited. This often means looking at one’s relationships, whether to his or her self, to others, or to the world around them.

Life transitions can be complicated. Sometimes, the most exciting changes can be the most difficult. Fear of change can result in anxiety, depression, panic attacks, acting out behaviors, or abuse of substances/alcohol. I work with clients to reduce symptoms that can often be associated with life transitions. I use cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and reality based therapies with my clients to assist in improving communication, increasing coping skills, and to enhance work, school, or home relationships.

You feel yourself over-functioning…everywhere… all of the time. Burned out and overwhelmed, you’re feeling stuck in a pattern that try as you might, you just can’t seem to break free of. You’re recognizing that maybe, just maybe, there’s something deeper going on that keeps you striving so incredibly hard. Feeling disconnected from yourself and others, you’re exhausted, you’ve hit your limit, and something’s gotta give.
