Whether you are a hardworking adult living in a constant state of anxiety and unease, a frustrated couple who has fallen into a cycle of anger and conflict that you can’t seem to break, or the spouse of a law enforcement officer who feels caught between needing connection with your partner while also respecting their work this is a place for you. I will meet you where you are today, wherever that may be, and help you shed light onto the patterns and beliefs that are holding you back.
Clients describe me as both empathetic and challenging. I am all about being “real” — I’ll be honest about my own mistakes, bold when necessary, and always validating of your experiences and how they’ve impacted you. I am also comfortable with seemingly “uncomfortable” topics — sex, money, gender roles, whatever — while also welcoming the humor and joy that often arises on the journey self-discovery. As your counselor, I’m also invested in my own growth. I don’t believe in asking my clients to go anywhere I have not gone myself, because I know how hard it can be to really commit to the therapeutic process. Fortunately, I also know that it’s worth it: that the hard work of counseling can result in true life change. At the end of the day, my goal is to help clients achieve a sense of steadiness in their lives: a confidence in themselves and their relationships that comes from knowing they can be “ok” in the face of life’s ups and downs.
