My Approach to Helping

I view therapy as an opportunity for you to evaluate the stories you tell about yourself, identify the storylines that are not serving you, and construct new narratives that focus on your strengths and help you take a more active stance in your life. This process is simple but powerful, and I believe deeply that it can help all of us isolate and move past the problems that have worked their way into our lives, helping us to reclaim power.

The act of coming to therapy is a brave one, and you should commend yourself for doing it. You are taking active steps to create the life you want. I want you to help you on that path, and I will strive to provide a warm, compassionate, and comfortable environment where we work together to highlight your strengths and achieve your goals.

I provide therapy for a broad range of issues and life stressors, including family relational concerns (couples, parent-child, siblings), worried anxiety, and faith crisis. Having spent over eight years working in education as both an educator and an on-campus mental health counselor, I also have broad experience working with families and students to navigate school and school-community challenges.

I am an LGTBQ ally, and I strive to bring a multicultural and social-justice focused perspective to the therapy process. Through a therapeutic stance of curiosity, I hope to empower you as the expert in your life. I feel honored to be a witness to your story, and I look forward to taking this journey with you.

"As we become aware of ourselves as storytellers, we realize we can use our stories to heal and make ourselves whole."
