About My Clients

You know you aren’t living your fullest life, because fear and anxiety is interfering with what you want and need to do. All you want to do is break free from this anxiety! I get it, and I can help you. Anxiety is treatable, and I have particular expertise treating phobias and OCD. It's exhausting to cope with anxiety, and it can make you vulnerable to depression, burnout, and problems at home and with your job. I am confident that therapy can help you find relief from the grip of fear and panic

My Background and Approach

As a psychologist, one of the most rewarding things I do is to work with creative professionals and artists who are anxious, and who feel burned out. They often deal with chronic depression and anxiety, on top of which, being true to themselves already feels like they’re swimming against the tide -- and it can be exhausting. Feedback I’ve had from clients is that I’m accepting, warm, and perceptive, and that a therapy experience with me is both deeply personal and highly actionable. I have a rich tool box of practical skills to share with clients, and we want to alleviate your distress and give you new skills to use outside of session. I also pay attention to overarching themes and core patterns that tend to hold people back. In other words, we usually address both current challenges and long-standing issues. My favorite part of my work is connecting with creative teens and adults, and helping them suffer less and experience increased creativity, joy and authenticity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Some therapists think it’s not okay to share personal views, but that’s not me. I am an LGBTQ+ ally, a feminist, antiracist, and a defender of racial and social justice. Personal work recognizing my own privilege and working through my own latent biases is challenging, lifelong, and humbling. As a therapist, I pay attention to the impact of systemic injustice, and the potential trauma that it inflicts, on my clients. In my free time, I don’t know what I’d do without my creative pursuits. At various times, I’ve been a drummer in post-punk bands, cellist, floral designer, painter, knitter, and jewelry maker. I currently design fabric and make a lot of mixed media art, most of which resembles demented flower gardens. Being creative is a part of what keeps me healthy and thriving.
