About My Clients

I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. We would be a good fit if you’re looking for support dealing with: traumatic experiences, depression, anxiety, PTSD, mood instability, family therapy, parent-child relationship challenges, ADHD, adolescent support, sexual abuse, domestic violence, generational and/or historical racism, LGBTQ+, and BIPOC populations.

My Background and Approach

My approach is trauma informed, inclusive, and focused on creating a genuine, welcoming, safe relationship and environment to support you in whatever areas of growth and change you would like to see and experience in your life. Thought and behavior patterns, attachment styles, trauma, and other symptoms create barriers for us to live our version of a meaningful and fulfilling life. I will work in collaboration with you to offer support by helping you build confidence in being able to achieve the self-identified goals you have. I also have a background in social work and part of the work I do is exploring societal systems and structures which impact and sometimes oppress our identities, life, and opportunities. Telling your story when you feel safe to do so is one way for you to offer healing to yourself and something I would enjoy being able to support you in doing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I became a therapist because when I went to therapy for the first time as a young adult, it was life changing for me. Finally having someone who not only understood my symptoms and what was going on with me but someone who also offered objective perspective on my traumatic experiences and their impacts on me, was absolutely life changing. I believe there is some healing in therapeutic work for anyone who may want or need it.
