Hello! I believe we each have the potential to live the quality of life we want for ourselves and those we cherish. It has become my life's work and joy to support others in creating that best life. However you define happiness and fulfillment is what I want for you. I believe you are the power of the human spirit and trust you to know what you need. Seeking help is difficult and knowing that the counselor you connect with will not judge you or shame you helps you take those first steps toward the life you dream of. It is my job to help create a safe space for you to explore yourself in ways that support making positive and affirming life decisions.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 14 years experience working with adolescents and adults; I am currently licensed in Georgia and in Oregon. My own life journey has been one of facing truth and healing emotionally and spiritually. Mine is a life-long journey and by supporting others, I find my life's purpose and meaning. I have learned that being in relationships that are based on trust and acceptance allows the freedom to explore and heal. I can offer you a professional relationship intended to support your personal empowerment through genuine regard and non-judgment.
Many times over the course of our lives, we encounter stressful and complicated circumstances. Have you ever wondered if you are truly happy? Have you thought that if you were different, others would love you? Have you felt insecure, depressed, and anxious about who you are and the life decisions you've made? Well, I believe we all have, and these thoughts and feelings are not abnormal or bad, rather they are normal and typical of people struggling with self-worth and personal dignity. Know that you do not need to face your life's obstacles alone. Spending time in therapy can offer you the space and skills to feel confident and capable as the person you are. My hope is to help create the conditions whereby you feel empowered, resilient, self-compassionate, valuable, and lovable. Together we can decide what therapeutic goals you have and how best we can achieve them together. If you choose to invite me into your life, I will honor who you are and who you chose to be.

Dr. Schulz gives me the space I need to express my concerns. She encourages me to be my most authentic self, and provides me with the tools I need to be exactly who I want to be in my everyday life, as well as in my relationships with others. She is AMAZING!!!! I highly recommend her.
