I offer individual counseling in which we will work one-on-one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. Everyone has a unique reason they find themselves seeking support and therapy will be different depending on each individual goal.
CHILDREN and ADULTS
I have experience with both children (ages 6-14) and adults. A lot of my background is with younger kids dealing with school issues, adjustment, grief, anxiety, self esteem, and behavior. I work with parents on skills and anxiety, and hope to provide relief to all of my clients (no matter their age)! I know that no matter the age of my clients, we all have the power within us to find what we need to heal and put ourselves back together.
My goal is to help you get back into the world with more stability and insight into self. Sometimes life can be overwhelming and it is during these times in which we often find ourselves holding on so tight we forget to see around us. Unfortunately, we often forget to reach out for support or guidance to find relief. Once we find another compassionate listener, we can finally relax into the space to heal together.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I really need therapy?
Everyone suffers at some point in their life in many different forms. You may have been able to successfully navigate those times before but maybe what used to work, doesn't anymore. There should be NO shame in seeking support no matter the size of the issue or the depth of the pain and difficulty- we all deserve compassion and community when we need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a bit more of something. By seeking help, you are taking responsibility for yourself and your situation by trying to make a change. Therapy can provide long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to find better relationship to self and others.
Is therapy right for me?
You won't know until you try, and my goal is not to keep you IN therapy. In fact, my goal is to work together to provide a better template to move throughout your life outside of therapy. Some people seek therapy because they are in the midst of a major life transition and are having a hard time managing their stressors. Others may be experiencing feelings of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting conflicts, low self-esteem, and "not enough-ness". Therapy can be longterm or short term depending on the need- some clients need actionable skills and others may need consistent space to explore their inner worlds with someone else as witness. In short, people seeking therapy are ready to meet the issues in their lives head on with curiosity and without judgement.
