About My Clients

Sometimes life gets crazy--but that doesn't mean you are. Maybe you feel different, defeated and depressed. No one understands you. You're overwhelmed and can't imagine how life will ever get any better, so why try? Yet here you are searching for an escape from the numbness creeping up on you. Maybe you are tired of faking your way through each day and want to experience authentic happiness. Let's embark on a journey to help you become who you want to be instead of merely enduring who you are.

My Background and Approach

You can be confident, courageous, and content in life. You can embrace your individuality and overcome the obstacles that keep you from experiencing joy. You can abandon toxic perfectionism and learn to accept your beautifully bona fide self—flaws and all. The best part? You don't have to do this alone. Let's sit down together and plot a course towards where it is you want to be. I enjoy working from a strengths-based, compassionate perspective that incorporates what sparks passion in your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being human is HARD! Sometimes being able to talk about what is going on can provide clarity on what next steps would be best. Other times there are things that are out of our control that we have to endure while society makes progress towards a better future. Struggles and obstacles are complex and rarely have a simple answer, but I believe it is worthwhile pursuit to fight the injustices that keep marginalized groups of people from reaching their unencumbered potential.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
