Languages Spoken:

I believe you are the expert in your experience, even when everything feels confusing & difficult. Together we create a safe space for you to process, grow, & achieve your goals. I am passionate about supporting and guiding individual adults (18+) of all identities through:

  • stress
  • transitions
  • career or education challenges
  • grief and loss
  • identity questions
  • well-being and health goals
  • conflicts
  • relationships
  • anxiety
  • substance use concerns
  • depression
  • personal growth
  • discrimination and marginalization experiences, and
  • impacts related to COVID-19.

I hold eclectic, person-centered perspectives that integrate multiple counseling theories and techniques to best meet your needs. I collaborate with you to understand your struggles, challenges, strengths, and values to help you make the positive changes in your life that you desire. My work may incorporate theory and techniques from motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral, solution focused, narrative, humanistic, and systems therapies.

Finding the right therapist is important. Check out for more information including fees, and contact me for a free initial video or phone consultation to see if we would be a good match. I look forward to speaking with you!
