What if you felt safe enough to lean into your discomfort?
Looking for a therapist is one bold, courageous step toward crawling out from whatever is suffocating your potential. Still, finding the right therapist for you can be hard. You’re wondering “Can this person help me? Does this person understand what I’m going through? Is this person the right fit for me?”
You might not know what therapeutic modality, theory, or techniques works best for you, but the first place to start is with a therapist who puts you at ease. Are you someone who may benefit from compassionate and nonjudgmental, but tell-it-like-it-is, professional support that puts you in charge of your own narrative? Are you someone who needs to vent, needs to hear other perspectives, or maybe all of the above?
Therapy is a form of protest. Be unapologetically well.
Many clients choose to work with me because of my training and experience in helping clients achieve their goals around struggles with daily functioning because of trauma, burnout, or ADHD. I also provide EMDR therapy for trauma, distress tolerance, or other emotionally distressing experiences. I also work with couples and families.
Some therapists have chosen to limit their work with certain populations, age groups, or treatment issues, and that’s okay! Many other therapists, like myself, find it fulfilling to work with a variety of clients who may seem very different from each other on the surface:
- childhood conflict or trauma that just won’t get unstuck
- feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness, or defeat
- general unhappiness even though life *seems* great on the surface
- internal or external factors that prevent life from looking the way you want it to look
- generational trauma or family/social pressures that affect their relationships and self-perception
- wanting to learn new skills and ways of thriving
- navigating brushing off the *shoulds* in life to live a life that feels authentic
- teens and children needing an objective, warm adult to support them through tough times (just growing up is hard!)
- exploring sexuality or gender identity or support coming out to family
- feelings of discomfort or obsessiveness around food or physical appearance
- having a strong, loving bond with their *person* but wanting the concrete skills and strategies to create a successful partnership
Ultimately, choosing a therapist centers around whether you feel comfortable, secure, and hopeful with the person you’ve decided to work with.
What I do:
Whatever your starting point, you deserve to become the become the author of your own story. That doesn’t mean you’re on your own, though — people seek out a therapist because they need someone with the training, objectivity, and perspective they need to gain their own clarity. Often, that means I’m providing opportunities for you to challenge unhelpful thinking in a compassionate and supportive way.

Education & Training
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English, Master of Arts in Creative Writing, and a Masters in Education in Counseling in Development. I’ve been in education and leadership since receiving my MA in English from the University of North Texas in 2007. Along the way, I realized I could build on the work I was doing with adolescents, parents, families, and communities in a more direct and eclectic way. While serving as assistant principal for a 7-12 grade campus, I returned to graduate school to earn my second master’s degree and begin my own journey to becoming a psychotherapist.
Transitioning from education to psychotherapy was a natural progression of my calling for giving people of all ages a space to empower themselves by building self-awareness, strengthening their communication skills, and thriving in the face of inequitable systems.
When not exploring new ways to bring clients’ strengths to the surface as they work toward meeting their goals, I am dropping pins in locations all over Google Maps to dream about my next family hiking adventure, making a mess in the kitchen while pretending I’m a contestant on The Great British Baking Show or practicing my own frustration tolerance skills while falling off my paddleboard.
