My Ideal Client

Do you feel disconnected—from yourself and others? Maybe change has swept into your world and left you feeling rootless, anxious, sad, unsure how to adjust, or even numb. Are you living with a chronic health issue and/or disability? Are you going to lose it the next time someone tells you to focus on the positive? Have you experienced spiritual abuse? Do you need to process lingering doubts and shame? Telehealth makes counseling more accessible than ever. No need to fight traffic!

How I Can Help You

Together, we’ll collaborate to create goals that inspire you. We’ll examine your stories—ones you’ve told yourself and ones that you’ve been told by family, friends, and the culture in which you live. How accurate are these narratives? What would it be like to choose a different story—one based on your values and beliefs? I can help you navigate these questions. Additionally, I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, which means I have extensive training in chronic health issues and disability. This includes things like adjustment to disability, coping skills, career counseling, and identity. Telehealth makes counseling more accessible to folks with mobility issues and/or health concerns. Ask me if you have additional accommodation needs!

Why I Became a Therapist

What led me to becoming a therapist was my own recovery from a temporary, partial disability that ended my ten-year career as a massage therapist. It’s terrifying to lose your livelihood. Going to physical therapy and doctor appointments and arguing with Workers Compensation exhausted me. I know what it’s like to rely on accommodations and Disability and what it feels like when they are denied. Recovering from my injury and reclaiming my autonomy was one of the hardest things I’ve done. Being forced to reinvent oneself, however, sometimes comes with an unexpected gift. I’m good at a sitting with people in their darkest moments. Despair doesn’t scare me. On the other hand, you might be surprised how funny I am. I wouldn’t have made it without my sense of humor, so I bring that everywhere, including counseling sessions. I’m still writing my life story, and I look forward to helping you revise yours. Contact me today to see if we might be a good match.
