Finding healthy ways to communicate is what I strive to teach each of my clients. I specialize in relationship therapy, which may involve couples, parent/child, friends, or co-workers. I want to help each client strengthen any relationship they may have. Relationships can be hard. You can care about someone and still have destructive patterns of communication.
I strive to make each client feel heard, valued and safe. When we can achieve this, he or she will be on a path to mental wellness. I want to help each person learn new and better ways to communicate. Sometimes, we just need to be heard by someone. I want to hear from each client by listening deeply to what they are saying. I believe that by listening to each person and helping them uncover the potential consequences to each decision they are considering I can help them to make choices that are right for them. I believe each person's situation is unique and should be treated on its own merit.

It seems like it’s way too easy to get lost or stuck in life. Sometimes it can be a slow build-up over time, or a major life event can quickly bring life crashing down. Whatever it is that’s gotten you here, I would love to work with you to help you live the life you want.
I believe in taking the time to get to know each client's uniqueness and what they are going through. It's very important that each client feel valued and respected throughout their counseling process. My goal in every session is to provide a compassionate and encouraging environment to help people gain confidence in the choices they make.
I have helped people struggling with anxiety, relationships issues, trauma, identity development, and life transitions. I am passionate about helping those who feel lost, stuck, overwhelmed, or afraid. I believe it's important to have a relaxed and positive environment where we can work together to create changes and growth. We’ll work together to find a way to help you work through your unique struggle.

"In my early professional years, I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their own personal growth"
I deeply enjoy the collaborative nature of counseling and helping people achieve increased stability and clarity so they can build the lives they want to. I believe that each person is unique, as are the problems they sometimes need help with. Therefore, designing solutions that are as fitted to you as your problems are is my primary goal. In order to achieve this, building a strong relationship of trust and understanding is very important to me. You don't come to counseling to feel judged or worried about being yourself, so my goal for each session is to foster an environment where neither of those concerns exist as we work together to lighten your emotional load.
I have helped people through various difficulties, from things like depression and anxiety, all the way through to uncertainties about their core identity. As such, I am very comfortable taking on clients with a wide variety of concerns. Augmenting my clinical education with empathy, acceptance, and active listening, I have found success in illuminating the personal strengths each client can use to make the changes they need and become happier in life.

Finding ways to change thought pattern can be difficult. It is not uncommon for individuals to find themselves thinking, “I am worthless”, “Nobody loves me”, “I will always be like this”. It is easy to get caught up in destructive thinking, and often a person has no idea how to change. As a therapist, I focus on the individual. It is my desire to help each client go from destructive thoughts to healthy, positive thoughts.
Whether you are married, single, young or elderly, I want to help you become the person you want to be. I strive to provide my clients with a comfortable and safe environment. Each person is unique and different. It is my desire to help each client overcome dysfunctional thinking and behavior, and strive to achieve individual wellness.

I have passion in helping adults and adolescents. I have helped those who have struggled with anxiety, depression, identity, loss, sexuality, intimacy, relationship issues, suicidal ideations, self-esteem, abuse, and life change adjustments. Every individual is an expert of their own their own life story. Together we can navigate the path and utilize your strengths in overcoming obstacles and achieving your counseling goals.
Every individual should celebrate in their uniqueness, finding happiness and solace in who they are and what they bring to the world. Sometimes life can present us with reasons and situations that can make this difficult to achieve. Making that first step can be hard, as changes are often needed to be made but aren’t often easy. Together we can overcome the obstacles of change together. I believe every person has an innate inclination to strive towards self-actualization and self-fulfillment. I strive to maintain a relationship of comfort, trust, understanding, and emotional support in a counseling session. I provide an atmosphere free of judgment and full of acceptance no matter the individual or situation.

Sometimes life can seem overwhelming and the thought of seeking counseling can be daunting. Taking that first step can be hard but results of taking that step could make life that much easier for you. As your counselor I will take the time to get to know you, meet you where you are on your journey and walk along side you. Together we will figure out how you can become the best you.
I specialize in trauma but I also have experience helping individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. My goal is to make you feel valued, safe and heard while cultivating a relationship of trust and mutual understanding that is free of judgment.
I believe each person's life and circumstance is unique and should be treated as such. With that in mind, I will focus on you, not try to fit you into someone else’s mold. We all have the ability to change and as your counselor, I will help you see that ability more clearly. It would be an honor to guide you as you learn how to lead a happier and more fulfilling life.

The experiences in our lives shape how we move through life. They influence our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, language, and relationships in positive and painful ways. Sometimes life events can throw you mentally and physically off balance, creating distress in your life and leave you feeling unsteady, uncertain, unprepared, and stuck trying to figure out how to move forward.
For over 10 years, I have had the honor as a corrective exercise specialist and wellness coach to provide a compassionate and supportive environment where individuals experiencing the life-altering obstacles and challenges associated with chronic pain can feel safe, heard, valued, accepted, and empowered to discover their own unique path toward healing, hope, restoration, and wholeness. My combined experience in fields of counseling, health, and fitness guide my holistic and collaborative approach to counseling. I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and adults facing a range of life challenges including anxiety, cultivating meaning and purpose, depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, working through life changes, and trauma. I consider it an honor to walk alongside you and strive to create a safe, honoring, and trusting space where you can navigate, heal and grow through your current or chronic life experiences.
In Loving Memory
On April 2, 2018, Marissa passed away after a long battle with cancer. Marissa was a phenomenal therapist! She joined our practice in 2014 and learned every aspect of the business. She was known around the office for her wisdom, love for life, and finding joy in the journey. She would choose joy many days, even when she did not feel the best. She saw clients up until her final days here on earth. Marissa is missed dearly and will always be a part of us. You can learn more about her life, and the reason for her joy by watching this documentary of her life. https://www.rightnowmedia.org/Content/Series/199050

Have you ever had a pair of sunglasses with the perfect lens to look through? Then one day, you lose them. The task of finding a new pair that has a similar feel, comparable look, and same perspective can seem quite daunting. It may be a silly analogy, but I believe counseling can often have the same effect.
Life is a journey of ups and downs, roadblocks and detours, times of sorrow, and moments of joy. Often times we look at each area in our lives through the same perspective, the same lens. My goal is to help you gain new perspectives, to guide you in taking a fresh look at life through a new lens. To see the beauty in the broken, to choose joy in the midst of sadness, to find courage in the face of fear, and to have patience in times of longing.
I consider it an honor to walk alongside someone wherever they find themselves within the journey of life. I have a passion for helping children blossom into their personalities and illuminating their emotions, for building a safe and trusting relationship with teenagers who are discovering themselves and their purpose in life, and for adults who are struggling to find balance and value among the pressures of life
