Are you feeling anxious, stressed, and/or depressed? Are you experiencing a transition: career, education, parenting, gender questions, relationship, spiritual questions, or loss of a loved one? Are you feeling stuck in your life? Let’s sit together and explore all that weighs on you. I think of counseling as a form of mentoring. You have the answers in yourself. My role is to be your companion and guide in accessing your own wisdom and power. You are stronger and more creative than you know. Therapy is an experience where I stay completely present to you, and help you explore, heal, and grow. I am LGBTQ+ friendly; here are some of the issues I help with:

  • anxiety, low self-esteem
  • mild to moderate depression
  • mental well-being and self-care
  • exploring the self through creative expression
  • career and life purpose challenges
  • adults with Aspergers or ASD with level 1 and 2 support needs
  • parenting neurodiverse kids (gifted, autistic, ADHD); it can be isolating as a parent
  • positive discipline parenting techniques
  • recovering from damaging religious culture/childhood or exploring spirituality
  • coping with a diagnosis of chronic or terminal illness; life-altering injury
  • grieving the death of someone (person or animal)
  • climate change distress
  • gender identity, sexual orientation, sexuality

My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral strategies, mindfulness, and positive psychology theory and techniques. When we work together, I create a compassionate connection with you. We can work on “fixing what’s wrong” while we also “build what’s strong” in your life.

“Not knowing is most intimate.”
