About My Clients
Do you want to stop worrying and be more connected as a family? Wondering how to change the patterns you’ve gotten stuck in. Overwhelmed by not knowing how to ask for help, receive, or provide it. Are you wanting to be seen, understood and respected in your relationships? In therapy with me we will find creative solutions to shift away from problem saturated patterns into connection and healing. You’ll build tools to manage triggers and conflict while we tap into your strengths and resilience.
My Background and Approach
I have been an individual and family therapist for the entirety of my career. I have also been a supervisor, manager and clinical director – leading and developing teams to support intensive community based treatment and out of home placements (hospitals or other programs). I've worked in or with essentially every aspect of the helping system, including adult DMH services. These experiences have brought me into people's worlds at the hardest times and taught me how to partner, help you trust yourself, use creativity and tap into all the resources. I bring a huge toolbox and diverse skillset, from which we decide what models and strategies would be most helpful to you. I see all people as whole, even when our parts get scattered, and am continually in awe of our remarkable ability to heal.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I practice from an anti-racist and anti-oppression lens. I believe that healing happens within our relationships, often to ourselves, and that your strengths, resources and community are critical to finding paths to healing. I do not define people by their problems or challenges. I believe in play, humor and curiosity when they are accessible. Everyone is at their own place in their journey, so this will look differently depending on your needs. You will see these qualities and know them in my authenticity with you. I expect myself to show up fully present and believe in the importance of joint accountability in any relationship. Some things about me: I've experienced the healing power of animals and am obsessed with my cat and future dog. I love nature, hiking, photography, and learning anything new.
