About My Clients

We go through years of education, but we often don’t even know ourselves. All we do know is something feels off…we feel unfulfilled in our work, and our relationships feel draining. We’ve worked so hard to make those around us proud, we forgot to think about how we feel about ourselves. Let's change that. My goal is to provide a space free of distraction and judgement so we can explore the experiences and relationships in your life that shaped you and begin to figure out our own personal values

My Background and Approach

Utilizing a client-centered approach, I cater my sessions to the need of each unique individual. A strong therapeutic relationship is essential to effective therapy, so it is my focus to collaborate on goals with my clients and create a trusting, calm supportive environment for you to gather your own insight and perspective. I believe history is our biggest asset in learning about how we view and experience the world in the present time. Utilizing a modern psychodynamic approach, I encourage the exploration of your earliest emotions, relationships, and behaviors to develop a deeper understanding of how these experiences have molded and affected our experiences of today. With this information we can choose what emotions and behaviors we believe continue to serve us and retire those that no longer make sense in our lives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a member of the ENM community, I enjoy working and supporting lifestyles of all kinds: poly, open, ENM, monogamous; all are respected and valid. I believe the closer one is to becoming their authentic self, the more life begins to make sense and the more one feels fulfilled in their daily lives; let’s get to know you together.
