Many people find themselves struggling with hopelessness, anxiety, or managing everyday life experiences within their intimate relationships, parenting, or various stages of life. When we are struggling to stay afloat, it can be difficult to do even the smallest of tasks. We are not promised a life free of difficulties, but we also do not have to struggle through the journey alone.

As a therapist, I believe in facilitating a collaborative dynamic in therapy to empower clients to find healing and solutions to issues. Think of therapy as a way for clients to be able to develop skills and tools to better be able to handle and repair situations in the future, like a toolbox. I believe that people are created with a desire to have connection and build relationships. Everyone’s experiences are unique and no two situations are the same. My job is to help guide and equip you with tools to best approach these unique situations and how to use these tools in the future.

I am experienced in working with individuals, couples, and families. I especially love working with populations of people wanting to work through past traumas to better understand themselves and their present interaction patterns. Along with trauma, I also have experience in grief therapy. Grief therapy may look different for everyone. This may be the death of a loved one, divorce, a big move, a loss of a job, etc. All of these circumstances can be life altering and hard to navigate on your own.

As a client you have the right to know what therapy is and what all it entails. Though therapy offers no guarantee of positive change, I find therapy provides space that individuals need to come and explore their inner feelings and thoughts, address relationship concerns or issues, work on communication patterns and dynamics, or even just developing skills for coping with different moods and thoughts that are hard to manage. Investing time and attention in your health, marriages, and other close relationships is often the best place to start.
