About My Clients

Sometimes (let’s be real here - a lot of times) life is overwhelming. Maybe you’re experiencing changes that have left you feeling extra anxious. Maybe you're going through conflict with a partner or a friend that's left you feeling isolated. Maybe you’re stuck in working towards your goals, or maybe you aren’t even sure what your goals are. Maybe you just feel off. You are definitely not alone. It can be exhausting to be a woman in 2022, but it doesn’t have to be.

My Background and Approach

Are you tired of struggling with anxiety? I have the tools to help you. You can learn how to connect with your emotions without letting them define you, practice self-compassion, and make decisions based on your values. In sessions, we will work as a team to heal emotional wounds, uncover patterns of behavior that are holding you back, and learn how to sit with uncomfortable feelings so that they don’t run your life anymore. I practice from an integrative approach, which is basically a fancy way of saying that my treatment modalities are tailored to you and your unique experience. Some of my most used approaches come from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Positive Psychology. I am action-oriented and work to equip my clients with tools they can use in their everyday lives to create the changes they desire. I believe that you are the expert on you, and I like to check in frequently to make sure what we’re covering in session is relevant to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy should be a space where you can simply be, but also feel safe enough to step out of your comfort zone and take risks in order to create change. I view my role as a companion and teammate, walking alongside you at every step of your journey toward self-discovery and teaching tools along the way. I believe that you have what it takes within you to overcome the struggles you face, and I will be here to help you every step of the way. I know how scary it can be to seek help, and am proud of you for taking the first step towards growth by searching for a counselor. If you're ready to create lasting change, I would be honored to support and empower you on your journey. Feel free to check out my website for more information on my approach and to schedule a 20-minute phone consultation if you're ready to get started. I look forward to hearing from you!
