Therapy for children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples and families
My friends and family describe me as calm, compassionate, dependable, and sincere. My friends feel that I am approachable and that they are able to experience a sense of peace as they share what is on their heart with me. I have always been somewhat reserved about my own feelings and am only able to open up once I feel accepted and comfortable with another person. I know that it is scary to show transparency with a stranger and it takes time to develop the counseling relationship just as it does with any other friendship. It is my goal to provide a relaxed, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment so that you feel comfortable sharing your own story with me. READ MORE>
Throughout my life I have always enjoyed being with other people, learning about their life experiences and doing things that helped and supported others. Through my own personal life experiences and some talented and caring professionals, I learned how to cope with life’s struggles, work through grief, and become a strong and confident person. I learned what it was like to have someone support, encourage and accept me all in a space where I felt comfortable. I decided I wanted to put myself in a position to be able to help others looking for support. I strive to meet you where you are and give you the care, support, and acceptance to meet your goals.
Do you know that your life is a grand adventure? I believe you have a story that is worth being told. You may not feel like it, but you can be the hero. Think of your favorite movie or story, each character experiences difficulties, triumphs, doubts, worries, and struggles. Difficulties do not decrease characters value or significance, instead it can make them stronger and valued as an asset. Maybe you find yourself in a sticky situation and you’re not sure what to make of it or how to get out. That’s where I come in. I am here to walk beside you, working with you toward insight, growth, hope, and understanding so that you are able to stand tall, and maybe climb out of a hole or valley you find yourself in. In our time together, I work to facilitate a warm, accepting, and safe environment for you to share your story and be heard. Let’s talk.
Your story matters; tell it. Making the decision to pursue counseling is brave-I know because I've done it. I don't think I have the right to sit in the "therapist chair" and counsel others without having worked on my own issues in the seat you are thinking about taking. I have been in counseling at various times in my life and am committed to an ongoing process of self-awareness and growth. READ MORE>

I believe each individual has their own unique experiences and therefore, I adapt my therapeutic approach to fit the client's needs and goals. READ MORE>
