We all face challenges in our lives. Sometimes we get through them easily and sometimes we get stuck. Sometimes the thoughts of past challenges stick with us and influence our day-to-day activities. I believe it can be helpful to talk to gain clarity and decide how you want to move forward. I see my role as being a supportive, non-judgmental, safe place to explore your concerns. Everyone's needs are different, but I can help you make plans for changes in your behaviors or to find a new way of thinking about difficulties. You decide what goals you would like to accomplish.

As a counselor, I so value the healing potential of human connection. Emotion and suffering are natural reactions to life, and the ability to sit with and process life’s challenges with another person can be a gift. Sharing moments of loss, shame, joy, and disappointment can lead to stronger self-acceptance and connection with others. I strive to be welcoming, open, and empathetic to all clients who walk through the door. It is my job to create a safe space for individuals of diverse identities, backgrounds, and cultures, and to notice when my own perspective and biases are hindering the therapeutic relationship.

My philosophy holds that the therapeutic relationship is sacred and deserves the highest respect. In this relationship the mystery of each person's inner being unfolds. I honor the uniqueness and integrity of each individual I see. I view my role as a support and a guide while I join you at a very important juncture in your life. You deserve safety and trust. The objective part of therapy may involve psycho-spiritual strategies/interventions that help integrate the insights of therapy. These approaches may include mindfulness skills, psychodynamic,cognitive, behavioral or spiritual interventions such as meditation and yoga.

You are frustrated and worn out. Maybe you're struggling in your relationship — you keep having the same fight, and feel unheard and stuck. (Or you're not fighting, because you're more like roommates than romantic partners.) Or maybe you've always held it together pretty well, but you're finally realizing how anxiety, trauma, or that unkind inner critic has been subtly (and not so subtly) affecting you, keeping you from getting the most out of life. Whether it's been weeks, months, or years, you know don't want want to feel this way forever.

Often times throughout life we find ourselves feeling disconnected. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, untethered and lost without any sense of direction. My goal as a therapist is to support my clients as they navigate and discover the path to their most authentic self. I strive to provide a safe space where clients feel comfortable in exploring their past, rewriting different narratives, and forging an understanding of self that enables living presently. Together we'll discover your strengths, while exploring areas that crave nurturing and healing.

"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." --Albus Dumbuledore. Seeking therapy for yourself and your loved ones, is the first step to making your desire for happiness a reality. Although you may not know what makes you happy, the fact that you know you cannot continue to feel the way you do or be in your current situation, demonstrates your willingness to make the necessary changes toward a more fulfilling life.

PLEASE NOTE: NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME... Tired of being labelled "the problem?" What is your life story? How can it be shaped going forward? Let's focus on those positive "sparkling moments" and make the complexity of the overall situation the main focus of attention in a safe, secure, and empathetic environment. I believe you are the best expert on who you are and where you should go. We will explore your past, present, and future, and orient you as a "person in the environment," rather than an isolated individual. We will work collaboratively and creatively to tap into your strengths and competencies.

I am not your typical therapist/counselor. So many of us have had bad prior experiences with therapists, making it challenging (an honestly, anxiety provoking) to try and find someone new. I believe in taking a more casual, friend-like approach. Therapy is hard work, but it should also be fun. I try to provide a very positive, non-judgmental space to explore and find your inner strength. I am an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) focused counselor. We will focus on mindfulness, acceptance, values, and finding peace within yourself. I am a Body Positive/Transgender/Trans/Non-Binary/Sexuality/Sex friendly therapist.
