About me

I work with adult individuals in individual and relationship settings. No matter what you’re going through, whether it be apprehension about major decisions; mourning losses; or experiencing stagnation, there is hope.
Let’s explore together to come back into affinity and appreciation of you.

Where are you in time and space?

I begin sessions with this question to carve a foothold into the connection within yourself. Wherever you are moment-to-moment, I aim to follow with compassion and curiosity. Using wonder and inquiry, tell me the details of your experience so we can weave the parts of you together.

​I believe that forming connections with self and others are a huge part of life. In the room with me, I’ve found it’s beneficial for my clients to notice how they create (or isolate from) connection, especially through the relationship we build as client and therapist. ​

Using pieces of diverse therapies, I hope to create a unique counseling experience. Through a collaborative effort, I like to have my clients leave feeling driven and accomplished. Let’s also not forget to insert playfulness and creativity wherever we can.

Individual Counseling

Sisyphus, with his boulder, forever attempts to climb his mountain yet is thwarted endlessly.

Like Sisyphus, life too can feel endlessly challenging and with diminished hope. With you as a guidepost, I'll do my best to be with you as you climb your challenging mountain. I believe in developing long-standing therapeutic relationships to bolster your commitment to change.

Relationship Counseling

In relationship counseling with me, I seek to aid couple's in strengthening their cooperative flow. I believe that when a relationship is in harmony, the people within the relationship are strong and established. They are willing to co-create connective experiences and hit challenges head-on with direct intentions. I advocate for conflict resolution, problem solving, and intimacy recovery to be on the couple's terms.
