About My Clients

I work with adult individuals to address a wide variety of life challenges, including anxiety, depression, loss, self-esteem issues, relationship challenges, codependency, and trauma. My clients and I have collaborative and non-judgmental conversations to assist them with looking inward to better understand themselves with more clarity and compassion, empower them with creative and empowering strategies to work toward inner-balance, and strive toward their goals.

My Background and Approach

I integrate a wide variety of perspectives toward psychological, relational and spiritual healing, but have a specialty in offering Parts-Therapy as a creative and practical strategy to treat anxiety, depression, codependency and more. I have a social-justice oriented lens and have a passion for supporting those who identify as artists or creatives, those who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community, and those who are recovering from abuse and/or trauma. If you struggle with feeling "stuck" in habits, feelings or relationships, therapy with a Parts-Therapy approach (IFS is a form of this) can help. It can help make sense of the noise created by negative thoughts and feelings, and uncover your personal power. It can include the use of metaphors, symbols, role-play exercises, writing / storytelling, and art. My work is aimed at helping you feel seen and heard with compassion while helping you see your circumstances with more clarity, and what you can do about it.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that healing and social justice are the same thing. I view our lived experiences and identities within psychological terms as well as socio-cultural terms. In other words, I view my clients’ experiences of feeling safe or unsafe / belonging or not belonging within the context of systems: systems within our own minds, systems within our families, and systems of power and oppression within our societies. I integrate a wide variety of perspectives toward psychological, existential and spiritual health and healing. I honor the lived experience, gender identities and cultures held by my clients.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
