One Sentence Treatment Philosophy

“Everyone needs a place where they can show up, be seen and known, and process life —both the glories and horrors of it and all the in-between. It is my hope that you will find counseling a life-giving and safe place for you.”

Short Bio

I work with individuals processing struggles related to identity, food/body image, faith/spirituality, singleness, family relationships, relational harm, narcissistic abuse, separation/divorce, shame, boundaries, and life transitions. I love seeing clients grow in self-compassion, value development, and boundaries. I care deeply for those navigating hard questions of faith and spiritual upheaval. It would be my honor to partner with you.

Personal Statement of Faith

I believe that God’s presence is vast and experienced internally and in connection to all living things. I believe that we are wired to thrive in restored and ever-being-restored relationship to self, others, creation, and to God.
