I offer counseling to individuals wanting a change. I'm direct, transparent, and engaged in our sessions - I hear that counseling with me is like having a conversation in a safe space that feels comfortable. My goal is to develop a relationship with you that is different from other relationships you are in. I'm here to listen to what you have to say and to help you reach your desired way of being. Even if you don't know the direction you want to go, we can figure it out together. Blocks happen in life with relationships, past-trauma, jobs, self esteem, school, etc and it can feel impossible to move the block out of the way so that you can keep moving forward. Let's work together to get you feeling like the best you possible. I personally believe that everyone can benefit from counseling, and I hope you are willing to give it a try with me.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

It feels real... but is it true?

My work focuses on accepting your thoughts as thoughts - they are not who you are. You are not your thoughts. Using acceptance and commitment therapy in our sessions can help you move toward your values (your desired way of being) while keeping your struggles with you, but not allowing them to run your life.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Just the thought of therapy can be scary. "Do I have to relive everything? Do I have to start from the very beginning.... again?" are questions I am frequently asked, and the answer is "no." You are the driver in our sessions. We can talk about anything that you feel comfortable talking about. We can go slow. It can take time to feel comfortable talking about yourself or your experiences. This is normal.

Therapy can be hard at times, and you might leave feeling sad, but that usually means you are working incredibly hard toward a goal or value. There are no quick fixes or tools that miraculously change who you are - it takes hard work, dedication, and courage to open up and invest in yourself. If you are willing to do the work, positive change will come. My clients are some of the bravest, most hard working, determined people I know, and it is because they show up each week ready to feel and move into a life that is enjoyable.
