VIRTUAL & IN-OFFICE SESSIONS
Calling all outliers, weirdos, tall poppies, creatives, geeks, nerds, and misfits looking for a place to explore difference, identity, and new ways of thinking, doing, belonging, and being! Prepare to be seen, heard, valued, and understood!
Are you someone who is seeking answers to difficult questions? Do you appreciate a warm and friendly but direct approach when handling challenges? If so, I may be the counselor for you.
I take a person-centered and existential approach to counseling - aspiring to help clients find and create meaning, identity, and direction in their lives and relationships.
I also enjoy educating fellow helping professionals through community presentations and continuing education sessions. I have experience presenting to medical professionals, educators, and mental health providers in a variety of settings. Topics include but are not limited to: team building, True Colors, Myers-Briggs, Strong Interest Inventory, and Enneagram assessments, niche development, client care, and LGBTQ+ affirming care and advocacy.
