My Approach to Helping

Do you feel overwhelmed by a life transition? Do you want a more peaceful relationship with your anxiety? Do you struggle with existential dread or grief? Maybe you feel like you can’t locate your real voice. And yet, you want to connect to a deeper sense of self and don’t want to keep sacrificing your own needs and desires. You might be here because you want to cultivate better coping skills or a place to tend to your emotional well-being. Wherever you are on your journey, you deserve to feel seen and heard. I’m here to help you uncover your true self with curiosity and self-compassion.

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 use an integrated and relational approach in my work and understand that each client comes with their own unique lived experience. My goal is to support you in creating a more manageable and meaningful life.

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 LGBTQIA+ 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 define goals, explore new ways of relating to yourself, to others, and to the world around you. I would love to support you in creating a life where you can live more authentically. Contact me today to set up a consultation to see if we're a good fit!

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I have felt weighed down by my past and disconnected from my true self. I know what it's like to want more out of life. I understand how hard change is and the discomfort that can come from feeling stuck.

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 enjoy doing transformational work with my clients. I know first-hand the powerful changes that are possible through the therapeutic process and relationship.
