In all seasons of life, we experience obstacles between where we are and where we would like to be. These obstacles can often present themselves in the form of anxiety, depression, a lack of self-confidence, relational issues, or unresolved trauma or grief, etc. I work with individuals, couples, and families in a collaborative process to explore these obstacles, challenge old patterns and beliefs, and find new ways of thinking and living. 

It is my hope that therapy is a positive journey for every individual and that starts with finding the right therapist for you. My approach is very relational, interactive, and direct. I enjoy working with individuals in all stages of life, especially teens and young adults. My heart is that young people would start developing habits and thought patterns that help establish positive identity and self worth. I know the daily difficulties teens and young adults face and I desire to give them the freedom and confidence to be who they are while learning how to handle the world around them. Each individual is unique and will experience their world through their own lens of understanding; therefore, I tailor each therapeutic relationship to the specific needs, goals, and history of each individual client.

This is your life; let me help you live it to the fullest. I look forward to hearing from you!
