About My Clients

My work may resonate with you if you're feeling small, exhausted, and disconnected from your authentic self. If you're tired of putting others first but don't know how to prioritize yourself, there's much for us to discuss. If relationships have become more taxing than they're worth, I get you. If you're an adult navigating a delayed ADHD diagnosis, let's explore this new world of understanding your mind and healing the emotional wounds you hold from not "keeping up" with others your whole life.

My Approach to Helping

I work best with adult individuals who are seeking a nurturing space in which to explore themes of overwhelm, stress, perfectionism, identity, emotional eating, relational struggles, creative blocks, and/or navigating a late-life ADHD diagnosis. We're likely a good fit if you're a curious, creative, open-hearted individual who takes your internal life and emotional self earnestly. Therapy is often more about surrendering, exploring, unlearning, and experiencing rather than eradicating unpleasant feelings or aspects of self. Reimagining yourself and the world around you can be scary. But a willingness to challenge the assumptions you hold is an integral part of this work. Compassion and acceptance will ease this, which is part of the therapeutic relationship we cultivate together.

My Values as a Therapist

The process of self-discovery is a beautiful one that allows your whole self to come into focus. Inviting in and healing the unconscious material behind your struggle can lead to long-lasting change. Hidden within that unconscious material may be the realization that what informs you from within was created from without. The systems in which we exist and learn--families, schools, communities, cultures-- can inform our values, self-worth, and feelings of safety out in the world. This is imperative to name and process in therapy so that you're not holding blame, shame, and stuckness for that which was never yours in the first place. I am affirmative of LGBTQ+ and relationship-minorities, including polyamory, and take seriously the impact of my privileges as a cis, white therapist.
