About My Clients

My clients tend to be introspective, self-aware, and are motivated to change. Sometimes they are seeking change; wanting to increase their sense of well-being, make changes in their work or personal life, or want to work on personal growth. Others are experiencing depression or anxiety and want a therapist to partner with to improve these symptoms. Some clients find themselves wanting support as they go through a time of change: such as divorce, employment, school, living situation, etc

My Background and Approach

I have been a therapist for 16 years so I've provided counseling for hundreds and hundred of people at this point and have spent over 15,000 hours providing counseling and support to clients. I bring that knowlege, training, and lived experience into every session. I work in a very collaborative way with my clients. I view you as an equal partner in the counseling process. You are the expert in your life. I view myself as an expert in helping people to make the changes that they seek. I brainstorm with clients to find strategies that will work for them rather than taking strategies verbatim out of a book. I work in a holistic way, helping clients to increase their wellness in all parts of their lives (emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual). I often recommend meditation, books, podcasts, etc. that I feel will provide benefit. I find that the clients who make most progress in counseling are often the ones who are spending some time outside of sessions doing these activities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, the LGBTQ community, everyone in the BIPOC community, and basically anyone who has been marginalized or abused. I am aware of my privilege but also know that I am flawed and have blind spots. I support vaccination for Covid. I provide a free, weekly online support group for people with Post Covid Syndrome ("long haulers"). I previously volunteered as a Big Sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program for about 8 years and gained as much as my Little Sister did through the experience. I've help raise thousands of dollars for the Foundation Fighting Blindness in their quest to end blindness.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Christianity
