If you’ve made it to this page, you might be feeling powerless against your circumstances or stuck in some difficult feelings. Sometimes asking for help can feel impossible, but you’ve come to the right place. As a doctoral clinical psychology student, I have had opportunities to work with many different groups of people. Those feelings of immobility are actually very common, regardless of your unique background, but talking about difficulty is the first step to making sense of things. 

I enjoy working with people of all different backgrounds, and I find working through adversity with others to be very rewarding. By examining habits, identifying patterns, and exploring relationships, you can begin to take some of that lost power back, and I would love to be a part of that. 

I have become convinced that an appropriate metaphor for therapy is striving toward wholeness, described by Grace (2013) as a “process of becoming.” Everyone takes a path. Sometimes you will walk alone, sometimes you will walk with others. Sometimes you will have to run ahead and trust that someone safer will be waiting down the way. The feelings and habits that develop in the meantime might fill you with joy or bog you down, and I hope to be a guide as you discern your way through.
