“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive”. -Brene Brown

Relationships are built on trust, and the therapeutic relationship is no different. Connecting with a knowledgeable counselor can help you during life’s most difficult transitions. My approach to therapy is person-centered, strength-based, and interactive; I will listen and ask questions to get to know you, your life circumstances, and your goals. At times, therapy may be challenging as you address and work through painful emotions. Rest assured that you will not be alone, as I will support you with compassion and sensitivity at every step.

As a licensed professional counselor, I have extensive experience working with individuals of all ages, including families. I have served in several different settings including home-based therapy, outpatient counseling, and a medication-assisted treatment program. Given my education and experience, I am well suited to work with individuals with anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, infertility, and self-esteem.
