Experienced counselor looking to help you through the difficult parts of life.

I believe counseling should be individualized to each person that I work with. Everyone is different and their healing process will be different as well. Each person has their own unique world, and I hope that you let me explore the world you live in. I will use my years of experience working with diverse people and issues to help you to grow. I do this by providing a safe space to explore your identity, life experiences and challenges. I have assisted people in dealing with stress, anxiety, OCD, cultural issues, depression, life transitions, sexuality and gender, grief, ADHD, and relationship issues (to name just a few).

You can expect a welcoming place to discuss the issues that are on your mind. First, I will get to know you and what is helpful for you in therapy. Then, I will tailor your sessions to your needs. That could be a place to talk out what is on your mind or different ways to cope with your struggles. I am flexible and like to take sessions where you want them to go. I like to include all parts of a person's identity in my work with them, including race, ethnicity, religion, gender and sexuality, to name just a few! I have experience helping people from all walks of life, from children, adolescents, college students and those who have retired.

Throughout life we can hit hard times. I would like to walk alongside you through these. Things can get better, and counseling can help these times get better. I use a holistic and integrative approach, because we are a combination of our thoughts, emotions and body. I like to draw from various models and techniques to help you on your path towards thriving. Whether you want counseling to be a place to talk through your issues or to focus on coping skills and solutions, I hope you let me create that space for you. My two dogs also like to say hello in sessions!
