My Approach to Helping

Are you tired of just managing symptoms that always seem to return?
Do you find yourself describing your symptoms almost as if they're a personality trait?
Has it ever seemed like, I know this is true, but I still feel another way?

I’m here to help you reclaim your identity and discover what a life worth living looks like for you! I believe in moving past managing symptoms and really understanding where these stem from. We do this by creating an individualized approach to counseling that makes sense to you, incorporating resources for temporary relief while digging into the root of these concerns to create real change.

I support people in creating the change they want to see in their life. I believe a huge part in achieving desired change is finding an approach to therapy that speaks to you and that uses your strengths & resiliencies. I integrate multiple treatment approaches as appropriate in order for you to feel heard and to make the progress you are seeking.

I believe everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life - not weighed down by crushing thoughts or plagued by unresolved traumas. And I bet that sounds impossible right now - but it's not! I continue to learn & grow in my own wellness journey every day, and I would love to support you in yours. I hope you reach out today so you can see for yourself!

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

I've been in your shoes - and I know how hard it is to reach out again and risk experiencing the same pain. I'm here to make this the best therapeutic experience possible - and I recognize that it may not be with me! I want to make sure that we are a good therapeutic fit, and if not, get you in touch with other awesome professionals who may be a better fit. My goal as a counselor is to help others find the support they need.
