With You Every Step of the Way
Journey to Self
Dealing with a situation that is causing you distress? Want to learn to manage the situation better? In therapy, we provide a safe place for clients to explore their lives and their core beliefs that shapes the reality they are living. We see counseling as a process by which we guide our client in exploration, clarifications, and identification of their needs. Often times, we might not know what we need, we just know something needs to change! We are here to help you figure it out.
Let's get started!
Let's talk about it in a different way
Need to say something and just don't know how? Need help forgiving? Struggling to move forward? Want to learn how to effectively communicate with your partner? All relationships, especially romantic ones, experience conflict every now and then. Sometimes you are able to hit a bump in the road and keep moving forward, and other times you might get stuck. That's where we come in! At times, it takes an objective third party to look in from the outside and help you figure out what is really going on! We have experience working with couples on a variety of issues including: communication, conflict resolution, trust, infidelity, financial differences, co-parenting, unrealistic expectations, social media boundaries, intimacy, time management, premarital issues, and various perpetual relationship issues. We want to help you have the BEST relationship possible! Whether it's a relationship with yourself, or a relationship with a significant other.

You Are Not Alone
In group counseling, people begin to realize that they are not alone. Many times individuals entering counseling feel isolated with their issues. People often find it encouraging to hear that other people have similar feelings, are facing similar challenges, or have even worked through a problem another group member is having difficulties with. Under the skilled direction of our group therapist, the group is able to give support, provide new perspectives, and sometimes offer alternatives to what you are currently doing that is not working for you.

From the couch to the podium, public speaking allows me to meet people where they are. I realize that not everyone will schedule an individual counseling session therefore speaking publicly and holding space with large and small audiences allows me to expand my reach. Speaking creates space for me to do my part to empower, educate, and erase the stigma surrounding mental illness and mental health therapy. I engage audiences with experiential activities, creativity, and movement.
Below you will find a list of a few topics that I have previously presented.
