There is hope, even when your brain says there isn’t.

Hope is seeing a glimmer of light, even when you feel surrounded by darkness. It is the courage to take one more step, even when you feel weighed down.

Finding hope is difficult and it is often considered life’s biggest question. Without it, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and anxious; however, when you choose yourself, you are choosing hope. Consider counseling the first step in your journey.

You are the expert.

My approach to counseling is integrative, meaning that I utilize a variety of methods to fit your needs. I firmly believe that you are the expert of your own experience, and that sharing your experiences can sometimes be painful. I strive to create a safe space for you to process these events and grow into your best possible self.

Progress, not perfection.

It’s a phrase we hear often, “progress, not perfection.” It’s easy to become caught up in a “quick fix”, but the truth is that the road to hope can take time and it can be filled with many ups and downs.

As we get to know one another, you will find that our time together fosters not only a hopeful future, but a path toward acceptance and growth.

You can find comfort in knowing that, through patience and understanding, I will be next to you as you find hope, build resilience, and achieve your therapeutic goals.
