About My Clients

I have had the privilege of working with children, adults, couples, and families of diverse cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, religions, and gender spectrums. I love the work I do and find it fulfilling, meaningful and beautiful. I feel grateful for the people that trust in me and allow me into their lives. I seek to establish a trusting, accepting, and collaborative relationship with my clients to support them in navigating life's many challenges.

My Background and Approach

My primary aim in my work is to meet my clients "where they are" by tuning in to their unique concerns and creating an atmosphere where they feel acknowledged and at ease. Working together, with awareness of your unique family dynamics and the cultural, political, and other contextual factors at play, we aim to alleviate your unnecessary suffering, improve your capacity for love, work, and pleasure, and empower you to provide the best care for yourself and your loved ones. My particular areas of focus include: helping children and their parents deal with acrimonious divorce and/or blended families; healing from narcissistic abuse in parental/romantic relationships; stabilizing in recovery from alcohol and other substances. I also have extensive experience in dealing with domestic abuse/violence in its many forms. I also have a deep appreciation that we all have inner strengths, even if unknown or untapped at the moment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The therapeutic process has the ability to transform. I am living proof of this. At my lowest point, I was anxious, depressed, suicidal, and trapped in an addiction to alcohol and Adderall. With the help of a skilled therapist, I was able to come out of this darkness - inspiring me to leave a successful business in order to help others who are suffering. I believe that everyone deserves a fighting chance to overcome trauma and abuse and live a rich, full, and satisfying life. I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I don't believe that there is a limit to human capacity. I believe we are all deserving of unconditional love. I hold the hope for my clients when they are drowning in hopelessness. I approach my life and my work through a feminist, anti-oppression, anti-racist, and body-positive perspective. I am passionate about animal rescue and shelter pets. If any of this resonates with you, please shoot me a message and let's find a time to connect.
