    Take a deep breath and know that you are not alone.

    At Nest Counseling Center, you will find a warm, inviting, and friendly environment. Whether you’re dealing with complicated mental health challenges or the stress of everyday life, I’m ready to help you create the meaningful change that you desire.



    A snug, comfortable, or cozy residence or situation; a retreat or place of habitual resort.

    Life is full of unexpected challenges and trials. And even when situations around you seem to be going well, it’s not uncommon to still feel overwhelmed and anxious. There are many areas of life constantly demanding your attention, and it can feel like a lot to handle.

    Nest Counseling Center offers personalized therapy in a safe and nonjudgemental environment. I provide the following services:

    Are you overwhelmed? Does it seem hard to connect with those around you? Are you struggling with feeling like you don’t know how to move forward from here? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. We know seeking help can be hard. You’ve likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years, but we’re so glad you have taken the courageous step of being here.

    Together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome your challenges. Whether you’re struggling with parenting struggles, relationship issues, or trauma, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey. We have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

    We understand no two individuals are the same, and we tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address them with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you’ve always wanted.

    If you’re ready to work towards the life you’ve always wanted, we’re ready when you are. Contact us today and let’s get to work.

    I'm so glad you're here.

    It is normal to feel a little uncomfortable about reaching out for help with your mental health and wellness, and you have already taken that big first step.

    My approach is interactive, warm, and accepting. I aim to provide a space in which you feel safe, seen, heard, and respected.

    All are welcome at Nest Counseling Center, and I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming and antiracist counselor.

    I believe therapy should be simple. Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation to decide if I’m a good fit for you. If we are, great! We’ll schedule your first appointment and begin mapping out a path to your goals. If not, no problem. I’ll refer to you to another talented therapist in my network who can help.

Since they’re not often discussed, it can leave you feeling alone and unsure of how to process your range of thoughts and emotions.


    Adoption is such a life-altering event and experience that it can impact so many different life areas. The impact continues throughout life with repeated echos and adoption cannot be understood as a one-time event.
