Life isn't easy, and it's not supposed to be. There's so much outside of our control, but we can choose to know and love ourselves, to do things in the world that bring us meaning, and to surround ourselves with good people. And sometimes we're doing all the right things, and life is still hard! Talking about that can help. You're not alone.
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I'm also a real human being. I live in the same world you do, with its profound beauty and heartbreaking flaws. I strive to connect with my clients authentically, and sit with them as we contemplate difficult questions. I don't have the answers, but I'll keep you company in the discomfort.
In the first session, I hope to learn about you as a whole: who you are, what you do, what you want, who you care about, how you're functioning, how you're hurting, what you need. As I learn about you and we begin to build rapport, I start thinking of all the resources I know of that may be helpful to you when you have the time and interest to consider them. My clients always get a lengthy email after our first session with a variety of different resources to consider, including poems, podcasts, particular authors or books, and more. Once we've spent a session getting to know each other, we'll come up with a plan to move forward.

My clinical expertise is with the young adult population, having spent nearly a decade working in institutions of higher education. My private practice clients are typically in their 20s and 30s. My favorite clients are asking tough questions about themselves and their world, seeking to find meaning, joy, and growth. Maybe you're in need of support through a transitional phase, getting ready to finish college or preparing for marriage, a career change, or parenthood. If you are looking for a warm and collaborative space to process your emotions and maybe get some podcast recommendations along the way, we might be a good fit.
