About My Clients

Much of my experience is with clients healing from complex, chronic trauma. I also specialize in assisting those living with symptoms of depression, anxiety, OCD, mood disorders, and ADHD. I have extensive experience working with children, teens, and young adults. However, I am more than happy to work with anyone with any background, symptomatology, or diagnosis. With the goal of meeting people where they are, I will gladly work with clients at any point in their healing journey.

My Background and Approach

I create space to meet your individualized needs on a session-by-session basis. I strive to create a safe, warm, and collaborative environment to prioritize your healing goals in a supportive and empowering way. Our personal working connection is the foundation of meaningful work together. Upholding this therapeutic relationship is of the utmost priority. I get to know each and every one of my clients as a whole person, including who they are beyond their presenting issues or symptoms. I was lucky enough to know what I wanted to do with my life from an extremely young age, thanks to the life-changing experiences I had with my childhood therapist. From then on, I knew I wanted to help people the way she helped me. Making connections with strong, resilient, and diverse individuals is the most rewarding path I could have ever chosen. I provide the same safe, welcoming, healing space I was given for all of my clients and empower them through their journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I define myself as an ally to all marginalized communities. I make social justice a main priority in my life. As a result, I have been involved in numerous social justice causes and movements within my community and strive to continue educating myself and grow in this area. I believe this is the foundation of any sort of meaningful work in this field. I believe mental health should be a priority within our society and I stand against the disparities and obstacles that exist that prevent equitable access to care. My passion has always been genuinely connecting with other people, empowering them, and accompanying them on their journey to the best version of themselves. I believe every single person deserves an advocate in this way.
