I like people.

I’m a counselor committed to helping folks discover and become the most authentic version of themselves. My work with individuals combines a wide variety of techniques drawn from therapeutic traditions like CBT, narrative therapy, polyvagal theory, EMDR, and mindfulness to help people come home to themselves. One of my passions is helping people learn and grow. In addition to counseling, I offer performance coaching, mindfulness coaching, and consulting. Whatever your needs, I’d love to come alongside you in your journey. November 2023 Availability Update: Unfortunately, I am about as full as can be at the moment. I'm guessing I won't be in a position to take new clients for a few months. You're welcome to circle back in a month or so to see where things stand, but if you're hoping to find someone soon it'd probably be best to go in a different direction.
