Do you feel like you are living your very own “Once upon a time”…but the “Happily ever after” seems elusive? Real life is often no fairytale and I want you to know that I will hold space for your story with the honor that it deserves. I see you as the primary author and my role is to help you deconstruct unproductive stories and write a new one that you actually prefer! I will respect your identity, culture, agency, and pace using a strengths-based, person-centered, narrative approach. I also use a trauma-informed lens to look at events that have happened in your story and I often incorporate Internal Family Systems and mindfulness in my work with clients. I enjoy being creative in therapy and I trust that together we can explore to find what works for you.
At Care Counseling, I provide individual therapy to female, male, and non-binary clients from age 14 and up. I have a special interest in working with: family units, adolescents and their parents, the LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals coping with anxiety.
I graduated from Saint Mary’s University with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and did post graduate work at Adler Graduate School in Marriage and Family Therapy. I also have a graduate degree in Theology from St John’s University SOT and I am open to working with clients with a wide range of spiritual expression. I am currently under supervision while working towards clinical licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. When I am not practicing therapy, you can find me delighting in my garden, kayaking, cuddling my dog, traveling, or spending time with my favorite people, especially my young adult children. Humans are endlessly fascinating to me and I can’t wait to meet you!
