Do you find yourself placing others' needs ahead of your own? anxiety and the nagging feeling of not being enough-or perhaps being "too much"-sound all too familiar? Are you feeling overwhelmed by a big life transition? Life's unexpected twists and turns can be daunting, but you don't have to face them alone. As a therapist specializing in personal growth and navigating life changes, I am committed to providing a space where your voice is acknowledged and your path to self-acceptance is supported.

A strong therapeutic alliance is the cornerstone of my work, creating a partnership where we can explore your experiences and goals in a supportive, collaborative environment. I specialize in helping individuals like you who are seeking relief from anxiety and overwhelm, coping with loss, experiencing significant life transitions, or simply wanting to cultivate self-compassion and a better understanding of themselves. Through an integrative therapy approach, I draw on various techniques to build self-awareness and connect with your emotions, tailoring our sessions to your unique needs.

Let’s work together to create a path towards self-understanding and well-being. I am here to support you every step of the way.

More Info About My Practice

The therapeutic relationship is what guides my work, and I am informed by a person-centered, somatic, existential, and IFS lens. However, these are just guiding points. Therapy is not about working within tiny, neat boxes. Our work will be unique and evolving, growing as you grow. I primarily work with adults and have a specialized focus on anxiety, overwhelm, life transitions, adult ADHD, trauma, and serving the LGBTQIA+ community. I also believe that advocacy is an essential part of mental health treatment. I also work through a systemic lens and wholeheartedly embrace a body acceptanceneutrality and Health at Every Size approach.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I understand the feeling of being stuck and yearning for more in life. I have personally experienced the weight of my past and the disconnection from my true self. I empathize with the challenges of change and the discomfort that can arise from challenging internalized beliefs and confronting life's difficulties.

During my early life, I struggled with people-pleasing and conforming to others' expectations, facing limiting beliefs, trauma, and self-esteem issues. Therapy became a powerful tool for self-acceptance and transformation.

Having benefited from therapy myself, I am passionate about guiding others on their journey of self-discovery. I have witnessed firsthand the profound changes that can occur within a supportive therapeutic relationship, fostering curiosity and growth.
