About My Clients

I am passionate about working with complex or relational trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, compassion fatigue, interpersonal stress, and burnout. My most meaningful work has been with HSP, Autistic, and ADHD clients, and I am trained to provide the MIGDAS-2 as an informal, affirming Autism assessment tool.

My Background and Approach

My style is open, authentic, non-judgmental, curious, and compassionate. All of your parts are welcome in the therapeutic space, and I will work to create a sense of safety there. I wholeheartedly believe that my clients are the experts in their experiences and have the innate ability to move towards healing and growth. I will join with you to tell your story, identify effective methods of coping, deepen self-awareness, and unearth your own inherent strengths. I use techniques based in Psychodynamic, Relational, Person-Centered, Dialectical Behavior, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy. Because emotions and trauma are stored in the body, some clients also find it helpful to incorporate somatic and mindfulness-based exercises in session. Every person is unique, so I will work with you to find what works for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent community, and am actively anti-racist. I am committed to practicing from a place of cultural humility and providing affirming therapy. I became a social worker because I believe mental health and social justice go hand in hand. I view therapy through this intersectional lens and emphasize the environmental factors and systems that cause individual, collective, and intergenerational stress and trauma. I strive to create a safe, compassionate, judgment-free space. I am proud to work for Richmond Creative Counseling, a practice that is committed to serving the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, and strives to ensure that every individual who enters the space feels safe, affirmed, and respected.

  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Wicca/Paganism
