“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act. It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence. It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community. I hope that my being real with you will help empower you to step into who you are and encourage you to share yourself with those around you.” —Janet Mock, writer, TV host, and transgender activist

"Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime's work, but it's worth the effort." ~Fred “Mr. Rogers” Rogers

Growing the life you want

We have one life that we get to live, and so we only have one chance to find and create meaning for our lives. So often we can be hindered by our fears and from the painful points of resistance that we have encountered along the way. Those points of struggle look different for each person, and many times can stay with us for a long time. But we can grow and recover, and taking the time to slow down and care for ourselves is a liberating experience.

We can work together to build on your inner strengths and connection with self and with others. You deserve to be heard, understood, and seen.

A partnership

We are social creatures by nature, designed to connect with individuals, our environment, and our community. The connections I build with my clients revolve around building a safe space to journey alongside you and help you to reflect. In my practice I don’t have prepared answers, I’m here to empower you to discover your own. I feel a great honor in being a part of helping people write their story and look forward to getting to work with you!

Therapeutic approaches

I started my career in school social work, but after a time realized and pursued my passion for clinical therapy. I have worked with clients of all ages, races, genders, and many religions too! I see beauty in how different we all are and our profound connections and similarities. And I use a variety of therapeutic methods to find the practices that best fit you and your needs. I can help clients suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, Schizophrenia spectrum disorders, Bipolar and other mood disorders, Borderline Personality Disorders, and many others. I have helped numerous clients who are struggling with LGBTQ+ issues; racial related issues; abuse and trauma; emotional disturbances; relationships between family, friends, and coworkers (including social skills work); women’s issues; grief; life stage transitions; parenting; stress tolerance and coping skills; building and breaking habits, homelessness; and spirituality to name a few!
