What does that mean? It means that I understand how hard life can be. It also means that when you walk into my office - whether in-person, virtually, or in nature - I welcome you just as you are.
Unfiltered. Unedited. As real as they come.
Whether you’re lonely, angry, sad, anxious, confused or numb — wherever you are — I'll go there with you. And we start from there, moving along this process toward healing at your pace and your comfort level.
Because I am the mental health expert — but you’re the expert on you — so I follow your lead as we journey together toward hope and healing.
I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC) and trauma specialist. For over ten years, I‘ve treated children, teens and adults experiencing a variety of mental health issues. I use evidenced-based treatment models such as EMDR and TF-CBT.

Stoke means to illuminate, to spark, to fuel — to light. And wells? They’re symbolic of the intention to dive deep into the unknown and come up refreshed.
Stokewell Counseling was founded on this principle: that we can be refreshed by hope and healing when we commit to doing the work of illuminating our darkest places.
Is it easy work or quick work? Not usually.
But I’ve made it my mission to ensure that it’s safe work — that lights your path to hope and healing.
