Announcement icon I am currently only offering telemental health for counseling sessions, for the time being. Please contact me for more information.
"Who am I?" "What happened to me?" "Why am I here?" "How do I go on?" These are common questions many people pose to themselves. Where do you find your hope? I am a counselor who has a heart for meeting you where you are, instilling hope, and making counseling a positive experience. You will find nonjudgmental understanding and encouragement, as well as guidance to help you meet your goals. I believe it is important to find your joy and purpose through this journey called life. No matter where you find yourself currently, I'm excited to share this journey with you!
I have been working with teens, families, & adults in various roles (pre/post-licensure) for 23+ years. I strive to make sure that everyone who comes into the therapy session feels comfortable working with me & has a voice in the therapy process. You matter and there is hope! We will work together to find the happier, healthier you...the best version of you.
I have many years experience working with teens and adults, addictions, suicidality, and family systems. I also treat trauma issues & LGBTQ+-related issues (LGBTQ+-affirming). The first session will be an assessment, to understand current & past issues & make an appropriate recommendation, as well as collaboratively establish counseling goals.
