My Approach to Helping

With 15+ years of experience in the field of counseling, I've had the privilege of working with a diverse range of clients facing various life transitions and emotional struggles. I saw clients in a variety of settings.

I'm a dedicated and compassionate licensed counselor with a deep passion for helping individuals like you navigate life's challenges. My mission is to provide you with a safe, welcoming, judgment-free space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and aspirations.

I work with ages 12+, individuals, couples and families. Whether you are struggling with stress management, parenting struggles, transitions, changes, adjustments, grief, relational issues, challenges at work or you are feeling alone, lonely or sad, I am here to go this journey with you and find another way.

I am welcoming to all and provide a nonjudgmental, warm, inviting, empathetic and kind space where clients are free to unload their thoughts and feelings, without worry they will be misunderstood, judged or criticized.

Counseling is my calling, and I am truly passionate about assisting individuals like you in finding greater clarity, resilience, and happiness in their lives. I believe that everyone has the inner strength to overcome obstacles and create meaningful change. You deserve the opportunity to move toward a state of being happier than today.

I have a style that is inviting and welcoming. I believe in taking a client-centered approach to counseling and in the transformative power of therapy, and my approach is grounded in empathy, active listening, and respect for your unique journey and needs. This means that my style and approach are adaptable to your needs, not a one style fits all. I provide a down-to-earth approach that is relaxed yet direct, that is tailored to you and your needs.

In therapy sessions, we'll explore the emotional and psychological challenges you are managing, working towards understanding and resolution. This happens in a nonjudgmental, open and dynamic space, where you can be you.
