My Approach to Helping

We live in a society that expects us to be flawless and to "get over it" when we have problems. Therapy is a safe, protected space where we are allowed to have human problems; to be real, imperfect, and vulnerable. We are allowed to be our true selves. My passion is to connect with others and help form lasting solutions to life's problems. As a team, we will work side-by-side to achieve your goals. Together we will learn, laugh, and cry; grieve, celebrate, and reflect. My goal is to hear, understand, and help you through whatever troubles you face. I offer a variety of services to fit your needs and preferences including individual therapy, group therapy, home-based therapy, and walk-and-talk therapy where we meet one another at a public park to take a leisurely stroll. If you are facing any of life's problems, it would be my honor to connect with you and assist you in your journey toward fulfillment.

More Info About My Practice

Whole Journey is a small community of counselors committed toward building real, meaningful relationships with you. We value a holistic approach to health and so our office also offers group workouts, therapeutic yoga, therapeutic writing groups, and coaching (health and fitness, parent, financial, and career). I work remotely for the majority of my practice but take the time to meet clients in person for at least the first session. I find this method makes therapy easier to obtain (not having to battle traffic is a definite plus) while still affording for the importance of that initial impression where a client and counselor get a "feel" for one another.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Let me start by saying this: I get it. I've been there. As an adolescent I was encouraged to attend counseling but I refused to go for a variety of reasons. I wasn't crazy. I was fine. That stranger wouldn't be able to understand me. I had friends and family I could turn to for help... Counseling has become more widely accepted over the years, but for many people it still is a scary, shameful, or even taboo subject. I encourage you to consider my take on counseling: every single person on this earth could benefit from counseling. In therapy you get a unique opportunity to escape the identity society knows and discover yourself while connecting with someone who cares about you. In my opinion, there does not even have to be a "problem" to attend counseling because it offers so many other benefits: increased ability to concentrate, improved self-esteem, self-understanding, and a safe place to vent. If you are still not sure, all I ask is that you try counseling for a few weeks before you rule it out.
