My Approach to Helping

I believe that we all need a little support at different times in our lives. I also believe that finding the right person to share your personal information with is so very important. I enjoy joining you on your journey and supporting you through the process of counseling. I work with children, teens, and adults with a variety of issues, ranging from adjusting to different parts of life, to anxiety and depression, to more serious mental health issues. I make a real effort to meet you where you are in your life in a nonjudgmental way and help support you in achieving your goals.

More Info About My Practice

I've been working as a therapist for 10 years now, starting my career as a community counselor working with children and families. I then worked in the child welfare system helping children and families who were affected by abuse and neglect. Over the past few years, I have provided counseling in the private practice setting, later starting my own business in 2017. I very much enjoy working with children and adults and providing counseling in a quiet, supportive, and accepting environment.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Sometimes it is hard to admit we may need a little support. I think it takes a lot of bravery to pick up the phone, make an appointment, and then actually go see a therapist. Believe me, most clients are so glad they made the leap. Going to therapy can be incredibly helpful, empowering, and beneficial in so many ways. Therapy can help sort out thoughts and feelings, get to know yourself better, and provide clarity on issues you may be having. So, if you have been struggling, having unhelpful thoughts, feeling down, or just wanting someone to talk to, I encourage you to try it out. Whether that is with me or someone else, you are worth it.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Going to therapy does not in any way mean you are weak or that there is something wrong with you. This stigma still exists for some, but I, and so many, know that going to therapy is just the opposite...it shows bravery and strength and demonstrates that you know yourself well enough to accept that reaching out to someone would be good for you. Plus, there doesn't have to be something "wrong" to go to therapy. Just like going to a regular doctor and dental check-ups, seeing a therapist is a good way to take care of yourself and deal with the stressors that come with everyday life.
