It can be a difficult step to seek out professional support, but in doing so you are demonstrating your willingness to invest in yourself and your well-being. As Morgan Harper Nichols said, “You do not have to be fearless. Doing it afraid is just as brave.”

“Sometimes when you are in a dark place, you think you have been buried, but actually you have been planted.” – Christine Caine

I primarily work with adult individuals (18-30’s) and teens (15+).

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, a breakup, past trauma, your romantic relationship, or another issue — my goal is to help you rediscover and access your strengths, work through these challenges, and lead a happier, well-balanced life. I strive to make your therapeutic experience fulfilling and would be honored to support you every step of the way.

I also have a special interest in working with the LGBTQ+ community, including teens, around gender identity/sexual orientation. I’m an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist; ask me what that means if you have any questions about my approach.

Please contact me today!

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
