About My Clients

I specialize in helping adults on their path to creating a meaningful, joyful life. This process may involve realizing unmet desires, developing a strong sense of self awareness and identifying values, assertiveness and boundaries. Together we can explore the the strengths and resources available to you in order to achieve your goals. A client’s commitment to self growth, personal discovery and self honesty is an absolute honor to be a part of!

My Background and Approach

My practice is operating virtually to prioritize safety for our community during the pandemic and to promote accessibility for therapy. I have worked in a variety of settings- i.e. Telehealth, inpatient psych, private detox, residential treatment programs, outpatient mental health clinics, vocational rehabilitation, in justice outreach and re-entry programs. My background includes navigating large bureaucratic systems, for profit companies and nonprofit organizations. My experience has encompassed managerial and program development roles, training and supervision, and direct clinical service. I believe in collaborating with my clients on their specific needs and preferences regarding therapeutic approach, pace and goal setting.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My educational background and professional experience has been grounded in the field of Social Work. I choose this career path to take an active role advocacy and reform concerning social issues, such as mental health and affordable housing accessibility. I believe in creating a nonjudgmental safe space for clients, the right to self determination and personal choice. Outside of work I greatly value spending time with my loved ones, traveling when able, and being active outdoors.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
