I strive to cultivate a safe and intentional space where clients can move toward their strengths and new possibilities. I am available to help people with a variety of mental health/wellness needs, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, disability adjustment, relationship issues, and problems at work.  I modify my specific approach to counseling based on my client’s needs and goals.  My ultimate goal as a therapist is to help clients live well.”
