About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who works with individual adults dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, ADHD, life transitions, relationships, loneliness and LGBTQIA+.

I use my humor and kindness to create a calm and relaxed space. I encourage clients to simply tell their story and I listen with empathy and concern. I believe the therapeutic relationship plays the most important role in whether and how therapy works. I meet my clients where they are in life and set goals to track progress and reflect on the changes that result. My neurodivergent brain helps me support you mentally and emotionally in unique ways. The backbone of my therapy is family systems theory because our experiences at home shaped how we act now. Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Mindful Self-Compassion is the secret sauce to learning how to take care of yourself between sessions. I use strength based, person-centered techniques and mindfulness to work with people in life transitions, people with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
