About My Clients

Something bad happened. Whether it happened recently or years ago, you are still bothered by it today. Memories of it pop into your mind against your wishes. When you come across something that reminds you of this past experience, you get really upset. There is a constant feeling of being on edge, like you can never truly relax or let your guard down. The bad thing is affecting your life much more than you want it to. Therapy can help you find peace.

My Background and Approach

I strive to make my office feel like a completely non-judgmental space. My hope is for you to walk in and feel like you could tell me anything that's ever happened in your life, or anything that is on your mind, and know that you will be met with kindness and empathy. My approach to therapy is collaborative. I believe you hold much of your own wisdom, and I can help you connect with it. I use my training and expertise to help you see things from a new perspective. I often use EMDR to help people heal from painful past experiences. This amazing technique helps you process upsetting events from the past in a way that helps you to feel more peace about them in the present. Together, we'll gain clarity about the problems you are experiencing now, while also being curious about how past events may be impacting you. As a therapist, my style is warm, personable, caring, and humorous. People experience a full range of emotions in my office, from tears to laughter, and I welcome that.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people deserve to feel welcome and safe in therapy. My practice is LGBTQ+ affirming, and welcomes people from all cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
