Feelings of frustration, disappointment, heartbreak, loneliness, stress, and other undesirable experiences may describe your position today. Though you’ve tried to fight against and conquer your trial, you’ve found yourself in the same or more difficult position than before. The trials you face have become a [seemingly] insurmountable mountain. My deepest hope is to help you scale your mountains.

My approach to therapy is first a person-centered one– this means I emphasize treating my clients with an unconditional positive regard, empathizing with them deeply, and that I myself am genuine through and through. I find that healing happens where trust, safety, and non-judgement abound, so I prioritize these virtues in each session. In addition to the person-centered approach, I practice Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and play therapy. My use of evidence-based treatments and psychotherapy theories will depend on the unique story and situation of each client.  I enjoy working with people from all backgrounds, and will respect your values and beliefs.

For those interested in incorporating their Judeo-Christian faith into treatment, faith-based counseling is a passion of mine. My hope is to understand your faith and beliefs and to incorporate Scripture and prayer into treatment.

I invite you to reach out for a free 15-minute phone consultation to discuss the option of therapy for you. Instead of simply imagining what’s on the other side of the mountains you face, let’s have you choose what awaits you on the other side of the summit.
