As a counselor, I hope to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental environment to venture on your journey of coping with life's challenges and meeting your personal goals. The journey no matter how short or long does not have to be walked alone. During our time together, we can collaborate to create individualized tools for you to work toward growth and wellness in a way that is most beneficial to your needs.

I believe that every person is entitled to a healthy, contented, and balanced life. We can explore meaning and opportunity to find methods of healing. I am committed to joining individuals, couples, and families in their journey toward empowerment, growth, and wellness.

I utilize evidence-based, peer-reviewed methods of therapy including talk therapy but also employ experiential, expressive mediums that encourage additional growth and learning. I am a Body-Brain Sand Tray specialist and provide sand-tray sessions for all ages looking to find deeper meaning in their lives through right hemisphere methodologies. I also provide art therapy and music therapy counseling sessions. Together we can work to find a balance of techniques that are effective for you.
