I believe that every one of my clients shows incredible courage and vulnerability by having made it this far in life. My relationship with my clients is based on identifying strengths, finding creative solutions, and looking at life through a lens of grace, hope, and sometimes humor. It is my belief that regardless of what you are going through and what little control you might have, it is the last and best human dignity to choose how you will walk through it. As a calm, empathetic presence, I hope you will allow me to join you on your journey, and that you will know "what matters most is how well you walk through the fire."

I counsel individuals, couples, and families, and have a special knack for working with teenagers. I am available to take new clients and would be honored to hear your story and walk with you towards healing.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Our lives are stories, with several moving parts, characters, and conflicts. When I see people, I see stories, and the time I spend with clients in therapy reveals the deepest and most true parts of the lives. The moments that a client chooses to be courageous and vulnerable are so inspiring to me, and speak to the hope that they hold within themselves.
I love being a therapist for the process of learning who someone is and the opportunity to be a character (minor or major) in their story. I treasure the moments when it is hard to speak, when it is easy to laugh, and when an epiphany is made and a client's eyes light up with new possibility. The process is always worth it.

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

If going to therapy means you are weak and flawed, then taking a shower means you are a dirty, disgusting person. Perhaps going to therapy means you HAVE weaknesses and flaws, but owning those as a part of your identity can be crippling. Therapy is helpful for you emotional and mental health in the same way exercising is helpful for your physical health. Going to therapy can mean your weaknesses/flaws are not loud enough or convincing enough to tell you that you're still worthy of help and making change, and that you are humble and brave enough to ask for a push. Although therapy is still stigmatized in some ways, scheduling a session and asking for help is perhaps a sign that your strength to live is stronger than your desire to quit.
