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.
