Given that life brings many challenges to all of us, counseling is one way that we can choose to explore and engage with the parts of our lives that are causing us pain or limiting our growth. Therapy can create more room for happiness and authenticity, and offer you a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in your life.
My approach to therapy includes a spirit of openness, acceptance and genuine support around all life experiences. I am committed to providing a trusting, and respectful environment where ongoing self-exploration and personal discovery can safely take place. I maintain a strengths-based style that is designed to empower individuals to follow their self-direction, and to make effective changes in their lives. It is my belief that in a warm, empathic, and safe environment we can strengthen insights and awareness, discover deeper meaning, and learn to attend to our feelings and thoughts in a growth promoting way.
I work with individuals living with a wide range of concerns and challenges. My areas of focus include:
gender identity exploration
LGBTQ life experiences
