My Approach to Helping

I believe one of the bravest decisions you can make is to begin to understand your own story. You may think you’re coping “well enough,” but you also know you’re struggling. Despite your circumstances, there is always room for growth and healing. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them access their inner wisdom to unlock what is blocking them from living the life they want to live. Having overcome my own obstacles in life, I value providing an inclusive, down-to-earth space where clients can show up exactly as they are. I work with clients to examine the behaviors, thoughts, and feelings that inform their life and sense of self. My work is rooted in person-centered, somatic, existential, narrative, and IFS modalities. But those are just guiding points. Therapy isn’t about working within tiny, neat boxes. Our work will be unique and evolving. It will grow as you grow. I primarily work with adults, and I have a specialized focus in life transitions, trauma, women’s issues, and serving the LGBTQI+ community. I also believe advocacy is an essential part of mental health treatment- I work through a social justice lens, and I wholeheartedly embrace a Health at Every Size approach.

More Info About My Practice

I work with a diverse range of adults and feel privileged beyond belief that I can help affirm and support my clients. Together, we will address issues, define goals, and explore new ways of relating to yourself, to others, and to the world around you. I offer a free 20-minute consultation to see if we're a good fit. I look forward to chatting with you!

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I lived the first part of my life behind a mask of people-pleasing and trying to be what everyone else wanted me to be. I struggled in my childhood and early adulthood with limiting beliefs, overcoming trauma, and self-esteem issues. Through my own healing journey, I knew that it was time to help others give voice to the authentic parts of themselves. This is why I now live and breathe for doing transformational work with my clients. I know first-hand the powerful changes that are possible through the therapeutic process.
