Do you find yourself at a crossroads in life? Are you seeking to move from being "stuck" to "unstuck"? Are you looking for additional perspectives on your issues and concerns?

 

Difficult seasons in our lives can be expected, and sometimes our old ways of coping or adapting do not meet the needs of our season. I enjoy working with clients, their families, and support systems in exercising autonomy to choose what is best for them. I believe you can adapt to meet the needs of your season without losing the essence of what makes you, you. I view all my clients through a systemic lens, highlighting the importance of context in understanding your concerns, major forces of influence, and formulating therapeutic goals. My theoretical approach is eclectic and includes family systems theory, narrative therapy, relational cultural therapy, person-centered counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, and structural family therapy. No matter how long or short therapy may be for you, I would be honored to share in your counseling journey.​

What will my first therapy session be like?

After looking over your paperwork and informing you about confidentiality, you and your counselor will discuss your concerns, symptoms, personal history, and treatment goals. Your counselor will decide if they are the best clinician to meet your needs, and you will decide if your counselor is a comfortable fit.
