About My Clients
I have experience with a wide variety of mental health concerns, including Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, ADHD, and life changes. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process where we work together to understand why you are experiencing distress and work together to alleviate that distress. I treat every client with empathy, unconditional positive regard, and provide psychoeducational tools to empower clients to accomplish their goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Every therapist becomes a therapist to help others, and I am no different. I was drawn into the profession where I have had the privilege of hearing people’s stories and experiences. I am a compassionate therapist who believes there is always hope, even at our darkest moments. I treat every client with compassion and without judgment. I hope to create a warm and safe environment where my clients feel comfortable sharing their stories. I use a person-centered approach to therapy, which means I treat every client with empathy, unconditional positive regard, and respect. Through my experience in sociology, I approach counseling through an intersectional lens. Each client has unique stories, experiences, and obstacles to overcome. It is essential to focus on our feelings and personal experiences in therapy while also understanding how the world has shaped us. I am a social justice-oriented therapist, and I strive to empower and advocate for each of my clients.
