You’ve made it this far, now what? Starting your counseling journey can be overwhelming and confusing at times. The most important things to remember are that you are worth the effort, to always be curious, and that I am here to help support you through your process. Call or email me to begin the next steps of your care.

It has always been clear to me that it takes a community to support an individual. We often turn to our families, friends, educators, and leaders for guidance in challenging situations. My role as a counselor is to help guide you through the challenges you might be facing in a confidential, empathetic, and supportive environment. My theoretical background to counseling is based upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), recognizing and incorporating both our thoughts and behaviors in the therapeutic process.

I am passionate about working with teens and young adults as they begin developing their individual identities within the world. This is especially true in regards to sexual and gender identities and the various personal, relational, professional, and spiritual concerns that often develop around these identities.
