Accepting Clients

I view therapy as a testing ground for clients to bring their full selves and be met with curiosity, acceptance, and respect.

About My Clients

I work with individuals facing grief, loss, trauma, relational abuse, marital issues, parenting, and parenting children who have special needs. In our sessions, I am an active listener, help clients explore their strengths, and am direct but kind to ensure my clients get the most out of their experience.

My Background and Approach

I am warm, collaborative, and focused on my client's goal for therapy. I challenge them when it is helpful in a mindful and direct way and invite feedback. I want my clients to bring the part of themselves they are afraid to show the world–to express their full self in session, to meet them with compassion, and pull apart what does and does not serve them. It is my job to help clients integrate what we learn in sessions so they can feel empowered in their lives, confident in their strengths, and compassionate toward their struggles. I work with many who feel they are "not enough," or alternately, "too much." I understand grief, what it's like to be out of sync with one's age group, and to be insecure professionally. I understand the unique challenges of being a parent to a child with special needs or a child to a dying parent.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

No matter the circumstance or diagnosis, clients are unique individuals who bring with them as much mastery and expertise, as they do areas to work on. My job is to help my clients define, know, accept, and integrate their true selves into their daily lives.
