About My Clients

My clients often struggle with unrealistic expectations that lead to frustration, burn-out, and indecision. They never quite feel “good enough” and are exhausted trying to do it all. If this sounds familiar, you aren’t alone. Many of my clients find themselves stuck in patterns of self-judgement and disconnection that impact their confidence and self-esteem. I enjoy helping clients build new patterns and insights that restore balance and connection to their lives.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in treating a variety of concerns that impact women’s experiences within their bodies, relationships, and sexuality. As a clinician I recognize that beginning to address these concerns often means addressing underlying trauma, anxiety, and shame. My approach to working with women’s mental health focuses on promoting personal growth through the embodiment of autonomy, choice, empowerment, and authenticity. I work with my clients to shift out of narratives that have kept them disconnected so that they can reclaim feelings of curiosity, compassion, and self-discovery that are crucial to their emotional and physical wellbeing. Some of the concerns I treat often include anxiety, shame, perfectionism, parenthood indecision, body image concerns, infertility, self-esteem, disordered eating, stress and burnout, reproductive trauma, and sexual dissatisfaction. I would love to talk with you more about how I can support you. Reach out to me for a free consultation today!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My experiences as a woman, social worker, and therapist have taught me the importance of women having access to spaces where they are able to make informed, educated choices about their own bodies. As a therapist I am particularly passionate about empowering women to consciously engage in their sexual and reproductive health. I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a concentration in Trauma and Sexual Empowerment and have nearly a decade of experience working in the field of women’s sexual and reproductive health. I am comfortable and experienced in addressing a wide range of women’s sexual health concerns, including low libido, arousal difficulties, pain with intercourse, lack of desire, sexual avoidance, and sexual shame or anxiety.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
