Licensed Professional Counselor Intern
Therapy is a hopeful endeavor; sharing ourselves and our struggles is an act of courage and faith. My practice is to support you to grow and to transform the struggles that you face, at whatever point in that process you happen to be. During the pandemic, I offer video therapy (aka telehealth).

Empowering women--and men--to understand their experiences to the extent that cultural influences have played a role is a strong focus of my practice. I explore with my clients the ways in which their lives might be changed by living more authentically and feeling the strength to do so.
I help clients to see how their strengths can be applied to effect change in their lives. We'll explore not only what has worked well in the past, but what may have worked well at one time but is no longer serving you, and work toward change.
I have worked with clients to make changes in their lives by examining the way they view themselves, others, their relationships, and the conventions in our culture, and by taking small, measured steps to new behaviors in a supportive environment.
Women face unique barriers, many times due to cultural expectations. Family, work, life-balance, burnout, self-esteem, transitions from motherhood to empty-nesting, retirement: these all look different for women, and we'll explore what they look like for you as the individual person you are, and for what you would like from your life.
My professional expertise in office settings and holistic view of workplaces as unique systems lends me a unique perspective I use to support you as an individual, focusing on the goals and challenges that keep you true to yourself.
Life transitions and change, whether chosen or otherwise, can bring feelings of anxiety, depression, and feeling 'stuck'. I'm here to support you as we explore potentially difficult choices and actions to find confident ways of being authentic and true to yourself.
When you feel like anxiety is getting in the way of your goals and doing what you want in life, I can help you find ways of understanding the source(s) of those feelings, tools to work with the anxiety, and to utilize this emotion as a bellwether for change.
I support clients with depression by providing a safe place to bring your vulnerability, meeting you where you are and moving forward at the pace you need. I find that setting small, attainable goals that we work through nonjudgmentally helps many of my clients with depression, and throughout the process, I help you to feel understood and seen.
