At Lighthouse Counseling and Wellness, we empower emerging adults to overcome the pressures of life that bring about anxiety, unhealthy relationships, or challenges in their faith by focusing on identity, mindset, and self-awareness to achieve a more fulfilled life of purpose.  

Why Counseling?


"Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Professional counselors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health".

- American Counseling Association 


Though these all could be tough situations, it does not have to be your end. Becoming aware of your current position and where you want to go is key. You can tackle the next stage of life, anxiety, relationships, and faith challenges with the help of a therapist and coach. 


My work has included assisting with anxiety, academics and careers, depression, adjustment issues, platonic, romantic, and familial relationships, and self-esteem. My goal is to partner with you as you acknowledge your past (when appropriate) and current struggles, explore the patterns of your thoughts and actions, and discover your goals for moving forward.


You are capable and deserving of being your best self and I would love to take that journey with you. Therapy is a safe space where you can be your authentic self without shame, judgment, or embarrassment. Let’s partner together to ignite the true you today!
