About My Clients

There is no ideal client issues for me. I find a large variety of presenting circumstances, life stories, diagnosis, etc. to be engaging and opportunities for processing, reflection and growth. My ideal client is self motivated to make changes in their life and open to reflecting on their thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and story.

My Background and Approach

I use a varied approach and a large toolbox tailored to individual needs, preference, and style. I have experience working with folks from a wide variety of backgrounds and with a broad range of presenting issues. I believe the world is a complicated place and we are complex creatures within it and that there are unlimited possibilities for ways to live lives which are fulfilling and satisfying despite challenges we experience. For some folks it may be more useful to learn hands on techniques, or to have space to dream and explore ideas, or to have opportunities for deep reflection and uncovering. I strive to create a safe space for any of these processes to take place.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I offer an empathetic and open place to talk about what it happening in your life free from judgement. I am a curious person and always want to learn and grow along with my clients- knowing that we all bring different stories, interests, strengths, and intelligences to the table. I love getting to know new people and find it powerful to be able to explore and make meaningful change within the therapeutic space. I look forward to getting to know you and to share in this experience together.
