Being able to be your true self is one of the strongest components of good mental health. “We have overstretched our personal boundaries and forgotten that true happiness comes from living an authentic life fueled with a sense of purpose and balance.”-Dr. K. Hall I recognize that feeling ambivalent or unsure about making changes is a natural part of the process of therapy. I utilize multiple approaches that are customized to your individual needs. There is not one path for everyone. Flexibility and choice are the cornerstones of my therapeutic approach. Using a combination of different strategies often yields the best results.

I have worked with many children, adolescents, adults, and families since 2017. Conflict in relationships, issues in communication, adverse patterns of behavior, and many more have been successfully addressed through counseling. Life is a journey that includes a lot of ups and downs. Sometimes all we need is for someone to walk along side us for a time as we face challenges that come along. I would like to equip you with the tools you need to address these. As we work together, my objective is that you gain insight and understanding about your personal struggles and feel confident enough to face them autonomously.

What would life be like if you could spend more time doing what really matters instead of just making it through the day and surviving? Have you experienced hard things in your past that still affect you today, and you wish that would change? Do you feel that sharp twinge in your chest when you think about just how far away you are from the relationships you want? If you have ever struggled with motivation, meaning, a difficult childhood, or a relationship that has lost its fire and hope, you understand how painful and gray the world can be when life isn't working.

Welcome! I'm glad you landed here in your search for a therapist. In our work together we will explore patterns and evaluate how those patterns are currently impacting you. I believe that you have the answers, and I serve as a support and guide towards exploration and change. Throughout our lives, it is easy to lose sight of what we actually want for ourselves. We become driven by ideals, other's expectations and fear, and after some time struggle to connect with our true desires and purpose. We may end up feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed when we find ourselves in this space.
