My Approach to Helping
Have you struggled with depression, anxiety, pregnancy or postpartum issues? Are you working through a difficult life transition, or perhaps events from the past that are holding you back? If you are looking for a compassionate, non-judgmental space to work through your difficulties, heal, and achieve personal growth, I may be able to help. I believe in the effectiveness of integrating a variety of therapeutic approaches to fit your personal needs in therapy. As your therapist, I strive to express my own authenticity, full attention, and openness in the process. I believe that therapy works best when it is a collaboration, and I frequently check in on your well-being, goals, and how therapy has been working for you. Moreover, my work as a psychologist is predicated on my knowledge of oppressive systems and its impact on people's lives. I strive towards sensitivity about racial, sexual orientation, and trans and gender-expansive issues in particular.
More Info About My Practice
In addition to individual psychotherapy, I also offer additional services. I offer customized career assessment for students and other individuals trying to determine a college major or future career. My assessments determine your interests, personality, values, and strengths that you can use to find a career that you love.
Finally, I conduct psychological testing and evaluations for students needing documentation for learning disabilities and ADHD in order to receive academic accommodations. I also provide evaluations and letters for those seeking gender-affirming medical care.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have 5 years of experience working at college campus counseling centers and still enjoy working with college and graduate students. Due to my own personal experiences with pregnancy and birth, I also enjoy working with prenatal and postpartum issues in therapy. My strongest areas of expertise, in general, are working with anxiety, stress, depression, and trauma.
