About Me

"We don't have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to." Brene´ Brown

I get great joy in helping clients find satisfactory resolutions to routine and unexpected challenges, and my primary goal is to see you thrive and function optimally. Working as a people helper has been my desire since high school, and I can honestly say that I love being a therapist. My mission is to support you with integrity and skill.

Helping individuals learn skills that result in useful thinking, mindful living and healthy relationships is deeply satisfying to me. Whether you're feeling stuck, worried, stressed, anxious, depressed, uncertain, apathetic, disillusioned, disappointed, and/or confused, I'm here to assist you in identifying strengths, limitations, growth areas, and opportunities. I provide strength-focused support with emphasis on healthy coping skills, emotion regulation, solution-building, and interpersonal effectiveness. I collaborate with you to help you reach your mental health, emotional health, and spiritual health goals.

I do my best work with individuals who recognize a need for change and are willing to try new ways of thinking and behaving. As a strength-focused therapist who collaborates with clients in taking practical steps, I would consider it a privilege to walk with you. I bring keen awareness, empathy and steadfastness to the counseling process that facilitates insight and growth.
