Just about everyone will experience difficulty at some point in their lives, whether that means grief, relationship conflict, mental health concerns, struggles with identity and purpose, or the question of worthiness and success. It can be difficult to know how to maneuver through the challenges that life can throw our way, and at times it's hard to know where to turn. My goal is to help create an opportunity to explore the workings of your mind, and to help guide you to self-discovery, knowledge, and peace.

Life is a process of change and growth and I am here to help you navigate that journey. My goal is to create a supportive, trusting, and empowering therapeutic environment where you can feel free to express yourself fully without judgment. Together, we can work to identify aspects of your life that may be keeping you stuck or causing you distress and to find unique solutions to your needs. Reaching out for help can feel scary, embarrassing, or like you are too weak to handle life alone but on the other side of these feelings is the opportunity for increased self-confidence, improved mood, and greater life satisfaction.

Do you ever feel that you're living in the past? Do the thoughts, memories, and dreams keep coming back? Do you always feel that something bad is going to happen? These are some of the affects of trauma. Others can include panic attacks, anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. Unfortunately we can't talk (or logic) our way out of our body and brain's response to trauma, and often we leave talk therapy feeling like we're spinning our wheels. There is good news: we can help your brain and body heal from the trauma so that the past can STAY in the past. Healing is possible, and I'm excited to work with you

Deciding to come to therapy can be a difficult decision; one that takes courage and often comes with some anxiety and ambiguity about what the process will entail. It is my belief that the foundation for a positive experience in therapy begins with the therapeutic relationship. Establishing a base of trust and rapport from which to grow as we work towards your goals will be the initial focus of treatment. It is important for you to feel comfortable with me; I will do my best to facilitate that process and to be transparent about what you can expect from therapy.

Seasons change and so do we. Life transitions are rarely easy, and change is inevitable. Maybe you find yourself struggling with making decisions needed to move forward and live life to your full potential or maybe you experience anxiety and depression and/or fear that cause you to feel stuck. Having non-judgmental support from a counselor can help make life transitions a little more bearable and foster growth and empowerment.
