The death of a loved one. Beginning a new job. Ending a career. Marriage. Divorce. Becoming the parent of a teenager. Entering into midlife. Moving to a new city. Adjusting to a new diagnosis.
Times of transition are inevitable for all of us. Whether unexpected or planned, adjusting to changes can knock us off our feet into a quagmire of fear, anxiety, self-doubt, confusion, and sadness. My role as a therapist is to journey alongside you as you navigate these challenges and stand again. Together we will work to identify your core needs and desires amidst life’s pressures, expectations, and obligations.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counseling Associate with a Bachelor of Arts in both Psychology and Religious Studies from Indiana University, and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Christian Theological Seminary. I am passionate about honoring the integration of mind and body, which is evidenced both in my work as a therapist and as a fitness and yoga instructor of many years. My therapeutic approach is informed by an eclectic understanding of neuroscience and attachment, CBT and strength-based techniques, Enneagram and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality tools, dreamwork, depth-oriented psychotherapy, and mindfulness techniques.
I am particularly interested in working with adults and adolescents who hope to build greater self-confidence, sustain meaningful relationships, access resilience to overcome challenges, and find purpose in the daily. The space created within therapy is open and affirming.
