My Approach to Helping

Good morning! Good evening! If you are reading this, something is probably bothering you and wondering if anyone cares or understands maybe? Whew. That’s a hard feeling to feel going through your daily life- exhausting!

If you are looking for someone that will not only listen but hear you and assist you with those negative and fearful thoughts, then you have found someone that will do just that! Life is so amazing- sometimes. Life just makes it hard to breathe- sometimes.I am a trauma informed therapist, so your story is safe with me.

When we meet, we will openly talk about what you need and want in the present moment. I really enjoy working with people who are in transitions in their lives, like "HOW did I get here, this is NOT what I envisioned!" no matter what stage or age you are in your life. I also enjoying working with moms (and dads!) who said maybe one time, "NO ONE told me this was going to be this hard, but why am I the ONLY one struggling!?" I also work with couples who are stuck in some way in their relationship.

I hope as your therapist you find the autonomy you are seeking in your life; I am on YOUR team. I am a solution based therapist, so let's get to work! I also meet you on the humanistic level, so your feelings will be validated in our space. My practice name is Staying Afloat Counseling where in our space, you will learn how to stay afloat while feeling you are drowning in this thing we called life.

Moms- feeling like your children hate you and you are failing because you want to quit being a parent but too afraid to say that out loud so you won't be judged- let's talk! I will challenge you while you break free from the reservations that are holding you back in any area of your life!
