How can I help you?

  There is often as much below the surface as there is above the surface.

People seek counseling for lots of reasons. Whatever brought you here, I applaud your decision to find resources and seek help. Whether you're just looking for some outside perspective or find yourself in the middle of a crisis, my goal is to help you. How does that happen?

Most challenges are easier with someone to walk through them with us. Joining with you in your journey allows me to support and encourage you, offer insight, and reflect with you. Our sessions are very conversational, but I listen a lot more than I talk. Together, we explore, uncover and shed light on what we can. But more than anything I will help you know — and love — yourself better. 

It can be uncomfortable to meet someone new and begin to open up.  I've been there! Our sessions are free of judgment, accepting and open. I'm soft-spoken, but will be honest with you. 

Many of my clients come in with feelings of desperation, depression, stress and fear. They may feel trapped, hopeless, overwhelmed, lost or confused. Very early in our process, they realize they are not alone. Someone understands them, and they have hope. This is the kind of help I strive to provide.
