My Approach to Helping

You did everything right. A life spent following the rules, considering and anticipating everyone's needs... and somehow you still found yourself on the losing end of a curve ball you didn’t see coming. Looking back, you can see that you found too much of your worth in making others happy, in avoiding conflict to not "upset the cart". You truly believed that by following the rules and doing everything "right" that life would turn out the way it was supposed to- happy. But it isn't working. Instead of order and sense, your life is chaotic and confusing. You're feeling at such a loss for what to do and how to be in this world. You need a guide to help you make sense and turn things around- fast.

This is where I can help. My goal as your counselor is to help you reconnect with your inner voice and develop confidence in your resiliency. Using a combination of education, mindfulness, and coping skills, you'll learn to make sense of your story, change your way of interacting with the world, and transform pain and fear into hope and growth.

It’s time to reconsider your story and discover what your own truth is. Call today to get started with your free 30 minute consultation. We'll make sure we're a good fit and get started on a plan. You have the ability to thrive, let's discover how together.

More Info About My Practice

I offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation to determine if we are a good fit for therapy. For the consultation, we can visit by phone or video so you can get a sense of who I am and how I work so you can make the best choice for you. If for any reason we aren't the best fit for working together, I am happy to provide referrals. I look forward to talking with you.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

When people first come to therapy they are often in a place of pain, confusion, discouragement, trauma, and sometimes hopelessness. I get to walk with them while they move into a place of rediscovering hope, a capacity for joy, a sense of purpose, and their true worth as human beings. It's the best work in the world.
