About My Clients

I support individuals through diverse life challenges—stress, anxiety, depression, work/school-related issues, identity exploration, and self-esteem enhancement. My approach is tailored to address the unique needs of each individual, creating a welcoming and empowering environment for positive mental health outcomes. While I enjoy and extend my services to children and adults, my particular expertise is in guiding teens & young adults through the complexities of these challenges.

My Background and Approach

With over 8 years of experience and a diverse background in various mental health sectors, I offer a wealth of expertise to guide you on a personalized therapeutic journey. I recognize your uniqueness, tailoring treatment to align with your needs and identified goals. Incorporation of CBT, DBT, and more helps to facilitate a customized experience. I emphasize a safe and supportive environment, inviting you to share and explore your experiences. Together, we navigate life's challenges, and I provide practical skills to empower you towards personal growth and positive change.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

I am committed to assisting individuals in navigating change and fostering growth at every stage of life. Serving as an LGBTQ+ ally and an advocate for neurodiversity, I am enthusiastic about cultivating a nurturing and affirming space for all. In reflecting on my own life experiences, encompassing challenges related to chronic illness, I can empathize with the unique aspects of your own journey. It's evident to me that there exists a profound intersectionality between physical health and mental well-being, and I am committed to understanding and supporting you holistically. I recognize the significance of having a therapeutic connection with someone who comprehends and resonates with your distinct experience. I am here to provide not only understanding, but also unwavering support, offering a pathway to your well-being and personal growth.
