Feelings of depression, fear, anxiety, confusion, anger, grief, trauma, and other struggles beset us all at times. I believe creating an environment where everyone can feel safe and heard is vital, and cultivating a therapeutic alliance to be alongside individuals as a nonjudgmental support in the journey to wholeness and independence. I listen for unique needs and preferences and utilize an eclectic and integrated approach to working with the whole person. With empathy and compassion I will also ask challenging questions to explore ideas, new ways of thinking and understanding, and guide intuitive discovery for meaningful change.

My ideal client is anyone who is contemplating a change in their lives, big or small. This may include specific, actionable areas such as changing a certain behavior or more broad, general changes such as how to better improve your mental well-being or develop healthier relationships. I believe that everyone is capable of change and, many times, already possess everything they need - they just don't know how to access it. I work with clients to develop an individualized change plan to turn big decisions into easier action steps. I view my role in this process as a "change consultant and coach" to help people live their dreams.

It takes courage to seek a counseling relationship--good for you for taking this first step! A compassionate, nonjudgmental therapist can help people identify and change dysfunctional patterns that are keeping them "stuck." My goal is to provide clients with a sense of safety, confidence, and hope as they explore issues that are causing distress. I work with adults using a blend of evidence-based treatment methods that help increase self-awareness, improve communication, and strengthen coping skills. Trauma, anxiety, depression, loss, chronic illness, and complicated bereavement are my particular focus.

I love what I do. I find it humbling and exciting to join my clients on their therapeutic journey toward health, empowerment and personal transformation. My approach is client-centered, solution focused and strengths based. Often people come to therapy feeling stuck and confused by their circumstances and welcome the opportunity to explore dysfunctional patterns. I enjoy helping people confront unhealthy thinking, develop a plan for change and establish new patterns of behavior. My clients report feeling unburdened, more centered, and better equipped to face whatever crisis or challenge they are facing.

I realize people come to counseling for what appears to be a million different reasons, but ultimately people come to counseling because they are in pain. There are times when a loved one is struggling, and a family, couple, or child requires extra support. We all face painful changes in life such as loss or illness, divorce, conflict, addiction, self-worth, and identity issues. There are times when these changes also bring up issues from the past and counseling can help. I want to help you cope well and live according to your values and aspirations. Counseling is about improving your quality of life and instilling hope.
