About My Clients

I specialize in supporting motivated, high-functioning adults with anxiety (some of whom may self-identify as perfectionists) and LGBTQIA+ Millennials. Folx may be eager to make changes in their lives and not know where to start, want to explore complex layers of their identities, or seek ways to better navigate relationships. We'll work together to boost your strengths and shift perspectives so you can engage in life with a more grounded sense of self.

My Background and Approach

*View my website for information on my specialties* I'm a licensed mental health counselor with over 15 years of experience in multiple areas of mental health offering a holistic and integrative approach to therapy. I incorporate various theoretical approaches to best support clients session-to-session; in using yoga and mindfulness, I may ask my client to pause and tune into their body and sensations/emotions they might notice. The body offers us information that expands our insight and awareness, the first step to change. Therapy is a collaborative process and my role is not to tell my clients what to do or offer advice - instead, I provide unconditional support for clients to be themselves and speak freely in a nonjudgmental space. Therapy is a commitment and it may not always be easy, yet it will be fulfilling and pave the way for stability, resilience, and success. If you're ready, reach out, I'm here for you and am excited to meet you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Black Lives Matter. I am dedicated to becoming more of an antiracist individual in all facets of my life. I am a queer, white, cisgender woman. I am proactively learning and unlearning to expand my perspective, increase the efficacy of care, and be a better humxn. I am a nonjudgmental, empathic, and open-minded professional. I believe in radical self-love and sex-positivity. I trust that you are the expert of your life, and you have the answers you're seeking; when we can truly listen to ourselves and reflect nonjudgmentally we find exactly what we need. It's an honor for me to hold space for you so that you can connect to your true Self. On a more personal/less serious note, I love my cats deeply and you might even catch one of them, Luca, in one of our sessions! I also love being active, whether it's lifting weights or going for a long walk, and thoroughly enjoy a good nonfiction book or memoir.
