Sometimes life can feel like road construction – roadblock after roadblock, a short detour to long detour, and bumper-to-bumper traffic. Feeling depressed or miserable, anxious or on edge, and lost in all of life’s twists, turns, or dead ends, can be overwelming and exhausting.

My work with you will begin by joining in the passenger seat and figuring out together how to navigate through all the construction and traffic of life. I realize it can feel daunting to begin therapy and I believe it is essential to create a space that is open to all and feels comfortable, no matter what brings you to the first session. My approach is to be genuinely curious, collaborative, and encouraging to help you achieve the goals you set at the pace you are most at ease with.

Part of my process is to ensure you feel heard, understood, accepted, and supported.  Navigating through life’s roadblocks and detours can be difficult and the route is unique to each individual. So, I draw from various therapy techniques to explore challenges you may be experiencing and promote insight and self-empowerment to overcome these obstacles.

If you are seeking contentment, satisfaction, grounded-ness, balance or peace in the midst of road construction, let’s work together to begin a more fulfilling route.

As a doctoral level student, I work under the supervision of a Licensed Psychologist. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas and am working towards my Doctorate of Psychology.
