About Me

I specialize in coming alongside people as they walk through the uncomfortable, messy parts of life. I bring a no-nonsense, solution-oriented approach to therapy, helping you come to a place of contentment with life as it is, not as you wish it was (or even as you deserve it to be). Because true peace comes when we come to a place of acceptance: no longer relying on external factors as the source of our happiness. ​Therapy with me is a little different than what you may have encountered in the past. A lot of mental health work these days is very "feel good", leading many to believe that being mentally well is simply being happy or un-phased by the circumstances around them. I believe you're allowed to be angry or anxious or upset when life gets messy. Therapy is simply about equipping you to process and cope with those very real emotions in a productive, healthy way. We might be a good fit if you: - Need a completely judgment-free space to process everything that’s come with the change you’re experiencing - Have noticed patterns of unhealthy relationships or behaviors and want to build new ones - Want a compassionate therapist who isn’t afraid to challenge you when necessary - Are motivated to gain insight and perspective into yourself and your life that you haven’t considered before
