It takes great courage to consider counseling and to reach out for help. Do you feel like you are in need of relationship enhancement, conflict resolution skills, addressing past hurt or trauma, and managing current stressors? Often, people will seek counseling only after these issues have had a significant impact on their work and personal life.
I want you to know that I am here to support you as you consider your options. With Thrive Therapy, there is no judgement, only acceptance and guidance. Therapy is not just a place for those who identify with having a mental illness, but also a place for those who want to maximize their life, their relationships and their experiences.
My goal is to empower you through this process. It’s an honor to be a part of someone’s life change and I look forward to playing a role in assisting you in accomplishing your goals.
“My mission in life is not to merely survive, but to THRIVE; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.” – Maya Angelou
I enjoy what I do because it means I get a front row seat to witnessing resiliency, strength, and insight my clients often did not know they had.
I am trained and experienced in taking a trauma informed approach to addressing your story, and use a strengths-based model to support you in experiencing empowerment.
Family Training & Therapy
I am open and encourage participation from as many family members as is willing to participate in therapy. Bringing more than one person in the room can be helpful for therapeutic success.
A SAFE SPACE FOR PERSONAL GROWTH
You can expect to be able to discuss your concerns without judgement and feel as though you are working towards the best version of yourself.

You are stronger than you know…
“Piglet?” said Pooh.
“Yes Pooh?” said Piglet.
“Do you ever have days when everything feels… Not Very Okay At All? And sometimes you don’t even know why you feel Not Very Okay At All, you just know that you do.”
Piglet nodded his head sagely. “Oh yes,” said Piglet. “I definitely have those days.”
“Really?” said Pooh in surprise. “I would never have thought that. You always seem so happy and like you have got everything in life all sorted out.”
“Ah,” said Piglet. “Well here’s the thing. There are two things that you need to know, Pooh. The first thing is that even those pigs, and bears, and people, who seem to have got everything in life all sorted out… they probably haven’t. Actually, everyone has days when they feel Not Very Okay At All. Some people are just better at hiding it than others.
“And the second thing you need to know… is that it’s okay to feel Not Very Okay At All. It can be quite normal, in fact.”
