About My Clients

My clients are highly motivated individuals ready to reflect on the past to change their future. This is a place where you can explore your identities and practice unmasking. Redefine or hone each aspect of you, including gender, sexuality, dis/ability, neurodivergence, racial, and career identities as well as your social identities (geek, nerd, emo, etc). When you feel more like yourself, you will feel safe to connect with others and create joyful communities where you can exist authentically.

How I Can Help You

I work with folks with all sorts of experiences that impacted their relationships with friends, family, the world, and themselves. My goal is to help you reevaluate the messages you've received about your worth and support you in feeling like yourself again. Every client-counselor relationship is unique; we will work together to set up your unique goals. In our work together, we will integrate humanistic talk therapy and EMDR. Your emotional experiences will lead us to your core concerns, and I will be there with you as we rediscover parts of you and dismantle beliefs that no longer serve you. The intentional use of EMDR can reduce the intensity of trauma you experienced at various stages of life or tackle phobias, like public speaking or test taking. We will challenge your negative beliefs about yourself and increase alignment with your best, well-rested self.

My Values as a Therapist

Relationships can cause hurt, and relationships are also where we find healing. In our therapeutic relationship, we will practice using empathy, setting healthy boundaries, and being authentic. Our relationships with society at large impacts how you feel about yourself. Oppressive systems in our world create unreachable expectations that squash individuality and freedom, especially if you are queer, neurodivergent, and/or a POC. The values of justice, equity, and authenticity are at the front of my work at all time. As we turn inward, we will seek the younger parts of you. Children are born with so much wisdom, creativity, and freedom. They know just how to ask for what they need and how to listen to their bodies. We will create space for young-you to reteach you what you've known from the start, especially when it comes to your relationships with rest, food, and connection. Together, we will explore your beliefs about yourself and work towards creating a bond of self-trust.
