About My Clients

You might feel stuck, scared, or ungrounded as you try to navigate this big life change. However, you believe that change is possible and you want to create space and time for yourself to find new meaning in your life, as well as to honor the entirety your emotional experience. Whether you have chosen to change your life or a recent loss has altered the path you felt you knew, therapy can help. I would be honored to be present to your experience and to help foster internal and external change.

My Background and Approach

I work collaboratively with my clients to identify internal blocks to personal fulfillment through times of transition and through difficult feelings and experiences such as loss of a loved one, loss of self, or loss of a way of life. I will bring my education, experience, and presence to help you to explore new ways of living and perhaps finding meaning. During my time in graduate school, I focused on art therapy and love to utilize creativity within the context of therapy. I truly believe everyone is inherently creative in that we have the power to shape our lives. I have many years of experience helping people process loss of all kinds, people coping with anxiety and depression, and people who are in the process of major life transitions, whether they invited the transition or not. I strive to make a safe space of non judgment, openness, and empathy so that we can work collaboratively together. If you feel like we might be a good fit, please reach out!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that life can be painful and extraordinary. I believe that mental health issues often stem from behaviors that might have been adaptive in the past, but no longer serve their function. I believe in the human capacity for change and growth. In my own therapy, I have seen how slowing down and becoming present while honoring who I truly am has allowed me to have more agency in my life and a more fulfilling experience of my day to day. I believe in the power of creativity and community and love to help foster those two things for all of my clients. Lastly, as cheesy as it sounds, I believe in you. I really do.
