Do you feel like you don't fit in? Do you struggle with finding meaningful relationships and honest connections with people who are genuine? Perhaps you find that you know what others are feeling and thinking and what they need is very obvious to you but others seem to be oblivious? Do you struggle with busy, loud environments and feel anxious in crowds? Are strong smells and loud noises overwhelming? Contact me for a free 30 minute consultation!

I provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to explore and grow at the pace that is right for you. I will help facilitate a healing and collaborative relationship by providing acceptance, honesty, empathy, caring, and understanding, and promoting trust. My approach is person-centered with a blend of existential, mind-body, grief and trauma-informed techniques. I utilize creativity and therapeutic techniques from a variety of perspectives that fit with your individual needs. I may incorporate such modalities as creative, expressive arts, traditional, spiritual and animal-assisted therapies to help clients find insight, empowerment, growth, and healing. I do not focus on diagnosing and fixing issues, instead, I believe in healing the whole person through the safety and connection of the therapeutic relationship.

Making the decision to start therapy can be difficult, and finding the right therapist can sometimes be overwhelming. I am here to support you through this process as you begin your journey of healing, growth, and self-discovery. Contact me for a free 30-minute consultation or with any questions you have about me, how I work and what to expect.

I look forward to working with you!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With


Highly Sensitive People, Anxiety and Depression

As a Highly Sensitive Person myself, I will work with you to help you understand your sensitivity, reduce your overwhelm and heal from past wounds. Whether you have known your highly sensitive your whole life, have just discovered or suspect you might be, or if you believe your child is highly sensitive; my services and support are here to meet your needs.
Many times people who are more sensitive to their environments develop very strong anxiety and depression. You may be struggling to find meaning or choose a career or life purpose and at the same time dealing with strong anxiety when you are in busy or loud environments or even panic attacks. I specialize in working with these concerns and I look forward to helping you heal and move forward.

Spiritual Counseling

This is an excellent fit for spiritual, intuitive and sensitive people. I combine spiritual techniques with mental health counseling for growth and insight, treating the whole person.

Childhood Trauma, Foster Care, and Adoption

I also specialize in helping children heal from trauma, promoting healthy attachments and transitioning from foster care to adoption. This is also great for adults who were adopted as children and are looking for specialized support from someone who understands the system, the issues a child may have faced going through it and how it affects them as adults. For parents and families of children in foster care and adoption, I offer counseling and support as well.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Contact me for a free 30-minute consultation, no strings attached. All new clients can contact me to schedule a free consultation in which they can ask questions, meet me and see my office. If you decide I am not the right therapist for you during this appointment, that's ok! I can help you find one that might better suit your needs by providing referrals to other therapists in your area. Finding the right therapist is like shopping for shoes, sometimes you have to try on a few pairs before you find the right fit. If you are still not sure that you want to try therapy after your consultation, that is ok too! Enjoy a cup a tea and a friendly, non-judgmental ear for 30 minutes before getting back to your day.

Not sure an office and traditional therapy is the right fit for you? That's ok! I also offer flexible formats such as online video, phone, email and chat counseling! Ask me about these options and how they might fit for you!
