About My Clients

Are you struggling with a life transition or pattern that continues to repeat itself? Perhaps you are functioning well in some areas of your life but feel stuck in others. You may be feeling sad or anxious and wish that someone could truly see you and understand what you're going through. Though the deep and connecting experience of therapy, we can work together to help you find relief, feel more empowered, and approach your life in new and fulfilling ways.

My Approach to Helping

In therapy, I focus on understanding what clients are saying and feeling with the intention of helping them know themselves better. Material that is often outside our awareness strongly influences our thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Bringing this material to light allows clients to reclaim themselves, feel more whole, and experience a greater sense of agency in their lives. The energy that was previously directed toward avoiding pain becomes available for pursuing fulfillment. The relationship between client and therapist is an especially important aspect of healing because it is here that a client brings all of themself to be seen and heard. Creating a safe space for self-disclosure allows clients to engage with the entirety of who they are rather than the roles they have carefully curated.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As social movements have gained momentum, I am excited by the opening of space for all of us to be who we are, to not be relegated to binary categories, and to challenge conventional thinking. We are influenced by the social institutions we participate in, so it is of utmost importance that we examine these institutions critically and effect paradigmatic changes that reflect the diverse perspectives of all humans. I think it is key that we find ways to live alongside one another and live authentically.
