About My Clients

Maybe your life has become increasingly overwhelming and difficult to manage due to anxieties, sadness, or self-doubt. Daily activities and relationships leave you feeling stressed, alone, or reacting in ways that frustrate and discourage you. Leaning on others for support might feel like an impossible and isolating task. I appreciate and value your insight and courage to reach out. Let's work together on this next step of your journey.

My Background and Approach

I have worked with clients from various backgrounds and settings with issues like anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, and relationship problems. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, one where we work together so that you can feel empowered and supported while navigating your most exhausting obstacles. So often we need help when our usual coping skills are no longer serving us the way they once did. Therapy can provide clarity, self-compassion, and relief in a safe and validating environment while uncovering recurrent patterns and challenges that are causing you distress. I specialize working with adults who desire to gain deeper insight into their challenges.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about serving adults of all ages and backgrounds but have specialized in working with older adults and their caregivers, especially those living with the consequences of dementia and cognitive decline. I have a Graduate Certificate in Gerontology and volunteer with various local organizations that are committed to advocating for those 65+ and their support networks. I have a fine arts background and believe that creativity and art-making can be therapeutic and powerful doorways into understanding unique perspective and experiences.
