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 individuals, teens (12+), and couples surrounding a variety of issues.
Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, past trauma, your marriage, your relationship with your teenager, or any other issue, my goal is to help you rediscover your strengths, work through your challenges, and lead a happier, well-balanced life. I strive to make your therapeutic experience fulfilling for you.
I also have a special interest in working with the LGBTQ+ community, including teens, around gender identity/sexual orientation.
If you’re interested in making positive changes to your life, I would be honored to support you every step of the way.
Please contact me today!
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
