I help you weather the storms of change in times of difficulty, stress, and loneliness. I am a listening ear and a sounding board for your thoughts and ideas. As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I will work with you to gain insight into your thoughts and feelings and help you to make progress toward your goals. You can feel free to be yourself and share what is on your mind and in your heart. I have experience working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, parenting and relationship problems, and difficult life transitions. Clients who simply wish to improve their communication skills and mental wellness are welcome as well. I have a post-graduate certificate in sex therapy and I welcome clients from the LGBTQIA community, as well as any clients who wish to discuss their sexuality in counseling. I use a heart-centered approach in therapy and aim to provide a kind and supportive environment free from judgment and censorship. If you prefer a more direct approach, I am glad to give structured feedback as well. I will work with you to make the changes you want a reality.
