Modern Therapy for the Modern Adult Who is Cool as Hell But is Also Struggling Because Adulting is Hard AF

Girl with Dogs

You're here reading this for a reason. Something doesn't feel right, and you know it. Maybe to everybody else you've got your $#!T together, but for you, you know you're really struggling. Maybe you've got a clue as to what it is. Maybe you don't. Maybe you're scared to admit you could use some help figuring this $#!T out because you've been able to do everything else on your own before. But think about that for a second. Have you REALLY done EVERYTHING in life on your very own? Haven't you needed help before with SOMETHING? Spoiler alert. The answer is yes. I'm not sure what you've heard or what you think about therapy, but we don't do this work to judge or condemn you. We do this work because it means something to us. YOU mean something to us. I'll work with you to help you find relief and healing by empowering, empathizing with and validating you. I'm proud of you for even being here browsing through my site. It must not have been easy typing "therapy" or "counseling" into the search engine bar. When you're ready and willing to figure this thing called life out as it pertains to YOU, I'll be here and ready with you.

Being a human being is hard AF! There is no guidebook on how to human. We're all just trying to figure out our next move to the extent of which our brains will allow. As your therapist, I'm not the expert of your brain: YOU are. But sometimes there are some areas of your brain that you just need another human to be present for so you can access them. 

Adults fuel my therapist fire. I LOVE working with adults. My ideal client is somebody who is so ready to start figuring things out. They can speak their story with authenticity and vulnerability. They're tired of feeling like crap, and they're willing to do the work. They are ready to be challenged and to turn inward to grow.

I use techniques from Brainspotting, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment-Based Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems. Read about the different modalities by clicking here:

Contact Me

According to marketing gurus, they say that on average, a person will look at my website 12 times before contacting me for therapeutic services. I'm unsure what number this is for you. Whether you've been here once or 500 times, there must be something telling you you're ready to do this since you've been looking. When you're ready to  make the call/text or send the e-mail, I will be here.
