About My Clients

People often reach out to me because they feel overwhelmed, anxious, or stuck. Often they are struggling with maintaining friendships, connecting with their spouse or children, or navigating parenthood. Some are survivors of abuse or have had other experiences where they felt powerless or helpless. Many are are wanting to heal from childhood hurt that left them feeling unworthy or unloveable. If this is you, know that your feelings and experiences are valid, and you don't have to suffer alone.

My Background and Approach

My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual client. I start by listening with curiosity and openness, and together the client and I develop goals and discuss different treatment options. I believe that the client is the expert on their life and that the relationship that I have with each client is the most important part of our work together. My approach is informed by attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiology. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which I often use to address difficult life experiences and negative thoughts that may contribute to feelings of anxiety or depression. I also utilize sandtray therapy and expressive arts techniques. With children, I use play therapy techniques, as play is their language. When doing parenting work, I primarily use the Positive Discipline approach, which focuses on the parent-child connection, recognizing the needs behind challenging behaviors, and building skills for the long-term.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I welcome all people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, neurotype, disability, or faith. I will honor your personal identity and work to understand you as an individual while also educating myself on the experiences of the groups or identities that you align with. And if you’re in a phase of exploration, I’ll walk beside you in that as well. I also believe that my job as a therapist includes noticing, naming, and building on the strengths you already posses. I commit to seeing you as a whole person, with your own set of challenges, strengths, resources, relationships, and beliefs.
