My Approach to Helping

I work with adult clients experiencing a variety of issues, including depression and anxiety, grief and loss, interpersonal violence, low self-esteem, gender identity and sexual orientation issues, social and financial stress, and experiences of oppression. The goal in my work is to help clients identify their individual values - anything that will help a client feel a sense of purpose or meaning in their life - work through any obstacles that they are experiencing – both internal and external – and take steps towards those values.

I work from a Feminist Therapy perspective, in a way that seeks to minimize the power imbalance inherent in clinical settings, centers the client’s story in our work, recognizes that the client is the expert on their own life, and helps the client identify their own sources of power. I primarily use an Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach.

I currently have on-line sessions available Wednesdays through Fridays, and some in-person sessions on Saturdays. I am also a writer and am learning to play the oboe.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I am guided by Feminist Therapy principles, including collaboration, authenticity, inclusion, personal power, anti-racism, and social justice. For more about Feminist Therapy - https:www.goodtherapy.orglearn-about-therapytypesfeminist-therapy

Please note that this approach is NOT exclusively for clients who are women.
