Accepting Clients

We humans experience pain in many forms and we cope by pushing it aside. I offer a fresh approach to living life fully despite the pain.

About My Clients

Are you bright, creative, insightful and productive? Do you have familiar & uncomfortable thought patterns that worry you? Do you have pretty clear ideas about the life you want to live but you feel outside the margins? Are you vibing with these questions & feel a sense of angst/urgency/curiosity while you read this? Anxiety can be tricky but I use scientifically proven techniques to meet up with it. I am here to tell you there is a path to your better life and I can help you pave it!

My Background and Approach

I am existential and mindfulness based, I am down to earth, and I welcome humor in therapy. The tools and techniques I will use to help you are scientifically backed (my clients see progress as a result). In session I'll offer guided mindfulness exercises that you can use in your every day life. Each week I create a small piece of optional homework to enhance your growth between sessions and maximize the therapy experience. We'll spend time getting to know the various forms of your pain and discomfort. I have found that pushing pain away doesn't always work - it's our default coping strategy but there are many more ways to more effectively live with pain and I can't wait to share these with you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an ally and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and an active supporter of Black Lives Matter. All humans are legal and I believe in our personal universal human rights. I am an adopter of rescue animals (four of them) and I volunteer to help immigrants land safely. I am continually learning and honing my skills and I am honored to connect with my clients.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
