About My Clients
Have you been feeling stressed, hopeless, lonely, or tired? Are you experiencing feelings of guilt and shame? Have you experienced a transition or a loss? If it seems like you have lost sense of your "core self", let's find it again. Clients often come to me for support in relieving symptoms associated with trauma, attachment injuries, interpersonal problems, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.
My Background and Approach
I have over 10 years combined experience working with pre-teens and teens in both mentorship and counseling roles. Most recently, I have been supporting teens, adults, and their families by facilitating individual, group and family therapy services. My approach is informed by my experience working in wilderness therapy and community mental health settings. I value providing the client with an alliance in which the client may experience both being known and accepted, while also be challenged towards greater growth. I am passionate about walking with clients as they author new narratives about themselves and their experiences, and in helping clients discover meaning and purpose for their pain.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I strongly believe that when we live in disalignment with our core values , stress, guilt, shame, and unhappiness arise. At the same time, we are inherently relational creatures; we are often impacted by others' actions with regards to their own values and shame. Life can be messy, hard, painful. Let's take action to affect change where we can, and learn to grieve what we cannot.
