    Deciding to start the counseling process can feel overwhelming. For many people, the emotions and experiences that are causing suffering have existed for such a long time that it’s difficult to imagine something different. For others, something unexpected and unplanned has overwhelmed their existing resources, and what was a temporary setback has moved from days to weeks or even months. For others still, counseling has been a familiar companion and it feels hopeless to have to start over again.

    However you find yourself to this point, welcome. I’m glad you’re here.

    As a counseling practice, our role is to provide a confidential and safe environment in which you experience empathy, authenticity, and respect. We provide therapy services for people of every age, meeting with our clients individual, family, or couples settings. We are culturally sensitive with specializations in EMDR, CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, and many other techniques. We have extensive experience working with anxiety, perfectionism, depression, trauma, sexual and gender identity, adoption, grief, spiritual concerns, self-harm, relationship issues, and much more.
