Personal Statement

Welcome! As your counselor, it is my goal to help you realize and actualize your personal, professional and life goals. Regardless of your situation or age, counseling can be a place to find support and achieve insight and skills for creating a path in life that feels more true to you.

I truly believe that counseling should be a good fit for you. Deciding the length and areas of focus is a collaborative process that should leave you feeling comfortable and hopeful, and together we will determine how counseling can help you feel more fulfilled in your life and relationships.

As a counselor, I specialize in mood and emotional disturbances, healing from a traumatic event or situation, and working with the LGBTQAI community. I also have specialized experience working with children and adolescents, and am comfortable working with a wide variety of other populations and problems.
