At times, we struggle through life’s challenges, perhaps feeling stuck or unsure of the path forward. Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.
Keeping up appearances is getting harder. Stress, obligations, and worries are taking their toll. Between the many obligations you have, these days there's not much left over for you and it's getting harder to just brush it off and keep going. You wish there was a way to feel more like yourself, reconnect with the people you care about, and maybe even sleep better again. When was the last time you really felt your best? It's starting to feel like it's time to take the next step to take care of *you* now. To be able to really feel inside what you work so hard to show everyone on the outside.
I will work with you, through a person-centered approach, to identify your strengths and utilize them to address your needs. As a team, you and I will collaborate on solutions and techniques that can be applied to any of life's challenges. I strive to create a safe, welcoming environment that can foster your personal growth.
My main practice centers on assisting Military Veterans and those with issues related to trauma and addictions. I specialize in working with clients in leadership transitioning and adjusting to stress associated with life stages and change. I believe the counseling experience is one of very personal, shared interaction between two people; the most crucial aspect of this relationship is trust. We will build this trust during our sessions.

I believe in a collaborative, holistic approach to counseling. My passion is to provide a place for healing, learning, and understanding.

In our lives we can struggle as individuals and within our family systems, regardless of whether we are children, teens, or adults. I believe therapy is a way to take time to focus and challenge beliefs around the different stressors in each individual’s life. Stress is a part of everyday life, there is no way to avoid it. I believe that with empathy and therapeutic support individuals can face these stressors head on and work to improve their quality of life, inner strength, and happiness. Therapy should be a safe space to explore and challenge uncomfortable thoughts and feelings through compassion and empathy.
In addition to psychology, I have an educational/work background in engineering, including disaster management, and bring a balance of empathy and evidence-based approaches to help you resolve issues. With hands on training in community mental health, I am comfortable working with with a diverse client base, including all genders, nationalities, races, disabilities, and ages, with a wide range of emotional challenges and issues. I have experience working with trauma, depression, and anxiety. I have a personal passion for equality and I am a strong LGBTQ+ supporter.
Working together, I will provide a safe, compassionate space free from judgment. Using my strengths-based approach we can work together to identify the goals that work best for you and from there we can work towards your personal development and growth.

Life circumstances and our own internal stressors can sometimes seem overwhelming. Therapy can offer a safe place to process and reframe events in our lives that may be causing stress and discomfort. My goal as a therapist is to provide a supportive and strengths-based approach in working with clients. I believe that individuals already have it within themselves to heal and just need the support and encouragement to begin the process. I see the therapeutic environment as an opportunity to collaborate on new ways of thinking to be able to enjoy a more balanced and purposeful life.
