Your story matters; tell it. Making the decision to pursue counseling is brave-I know because I’ve done it. I don’t think I have the right to sit in the “therapist chair” and counsel others without having worked on my own issues in the seat you are thinking about taking. I have been in counseling at various times in my life and am committed to an ongoing process of self-awareness and growth.

Throughout my life I have always enjoyed being with other people, learning about their life experiences and doing things that helped and supported others. Through my own personal life experiences and some talented and caring professionals, I learned how to cope with life’s struggles, work through grief, and become a strong and confident person. I learned what it was like to have someone support, encourage and accept me all in a space where I felt comfortable. I decided I wanted to put myself in a position to be able to help others looking for support. I strive to meet you where you are and give you the care, support, and acceptance to meet your goals.

My friends and family describe me as calm, compassionate, dependable, and sincere. My friends feel that I am approachable and that they are able to experience a sense of peace as they share what is on their heart with me. I have always been somewhat reserved about my own feelings and am only able to open up once I feel accepted and comfortable with another person. I know that it is scary to show transparency with a stranger and it takes time to develop the counseling relationship just as it does with any other friendship. It is my goal to provide a relaxed, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment so that you feel comfortable sharing your own story with me.

I have always been drawn to people and strongly believe in the power of community. Through family, friends, mentors and as a counselor, I have experienced the profound joy and power of walking with and learning from others. It is my sincere hope to walk alongside of you, help you discover your strength, and cheer you on as you work towards your goals.

For as long as I can remember, I have felt drawn to serve others and give back to my community. Throughout my life, connecting with others has come easily for me and I believe my gentle and warm demeanor helps clients feel safe and comfortable to open up during therapy sessions. As a parent myself, I know what it’s like to worry about your child; to question if their struggles are just a phase or if they could benefit from a space and support outside the family to process their emotions.
