About My Clients

I love working with clients who are ready to look back at the past to make sense of the present. Workplace, social situations, and romantic relationships often trigger behaviors and patterns from our childhoods or past relationships. We catch ourselves being defensive, anxious, people-pleasing, or in co-dependent relationships. We wonder why we so often find ourselves in toxic workplace environments or why we’re attracted to the same type of partner over and over.

My Background and Approach

My own experience as a client in therapy was so life changing that I knew I wanted to help others experience the same. My passion is working with clients who experienced trauma and dysfunction growing up and helping them work to understand themselves, their personal and family histories, and the world around them. Clients often find that doing so helps reduce and manage symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve relationships, draw stronger boundaries, and change behavioral patterns such as procrastination or perfectionism.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

All political, cultural, and religious viewpoints are welcome and embraced in my office. Therapy should be a place to discuss pain and heal from life, without judgement, fear, or stigma and with the knowledge that as your counselor, I accept you as you are. My first career was in speech and debate. I competed in high school and coached as an adult. I really enjoy working with fellow teachers and understand the unique emotional identity that comes with being an educator. The pressures on educators have never been as intense as they are today. I also tend to look at things with a 'debate lens', defining the problem, evaluating the terms, and understanding there is truth in all sides of an issue. I am an 'animal person', and share my office and my practice with Zen, a therapy cat. He is available to meet with clients upon request.
