I found my way to being a therapist after five years of mentoring youth and young adults in the wilderness, building trails in remote locations. This experience inspired me to make counseling my career. 

I recognize that you are the expert of your own life. Together we will work on developing and amplifying your personal values, the actions you take in service to those values, and your ability to live your best life alongside whatever unpleasant feelings and hard truths that may be present.

 

We will collaboratively create a healthy space for healing and growth. I truly believe in everyone’s ability to reach their potential within whatever circumstances they may find themselves in. I would be honored for the chance to help get you pointed and moving in your desired direction.
