ABOUT Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience working in a variety of settings including mental health agencies, residential facilities, wilderness therapy and private practice. I strive to create a caring, safe and comfortable space. Therapy with me may bring up tears and anger, but also hope, laughter, and confidence. My primary goal as a psychotherapist is to help my clients develop the insight, resilience, and skills they need to live their lives as an expression of their deepest values.

I believe that a lot of our suffering begins with a lost connection. When we're depressed, we've lost touch with our own vitality, sometimes even our own reasons for living. When we're grieving, we've lost an essential part of our world-- and, with it, a part of ourselves. When we're worrying or obsessing or beating ourselves up, we're more consumed with the stories in our heads than our actual lives. Psychotherapy works by restoring these vital connections-- to ourselves, and to the people and activities that make our lives most worth living.

I am in awe of human transformation. It moves me to see people shift from stuckness to the full expression of who they are. I’m inspired by the impulse to evolve- in myself and others. Life’s challenges have been my greatest teachers and wisdom growers. I hold the view that my clients are already whole, and I see it as my job to support them in embodying that wholeness. It is my passion to support people on their path to wellbeing.
