About My Clients

I have successfully worked with teens as they navigate the social climate, deal with peer pressure, learn how to better communicate given the challenges of our plugged in culture, and assist them as they transition out of high school. We discuss their current identity and who they want to become. I also work with young adults living with anxiety and depression, trying to manage the numerous transitions that occur after college, as they enter “the real world,” and try to do it all.

My Background and Approach

All of us have our struggles; it is what makes us human. Recognizing and examining these areas takes a tremendous amount of courage. Therefore, I will provide you with a warm, comfortable, and safe environment. I will work with you holistically: mind, body, and soul. I will help you to identify the specific areas of your life that could use more love and attention. In doing so, we will begin to understand and address your emotional wounds, how to heal from them, and discontinue unhappy patterns.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we as a human race are all so similar and yet it is our intricacies that make us unique. When we come from a place of seeing familiarities within one another, it easier to relate, feel seen, and understood. When working with my clients, I operate as if we are on the same wave length. Clients have told me that coming in feels like chatting with a close friend that you can have deep conversations with. It is my goal to make coming to therapy a feel-good hour that is all about you. In addition to my private practice, I also provide presentations at local schools, community organizations, and businesses on various topics, including teens and technology and work-life balance. I am also on the board a local non-profit, The Seeking Light Foundation, with a mission to provide education, support, and advocacy for those living with a mental illness and their loved ones.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
