About My Clients

I find joy in working with people facing life changes, grief, anxiety, new opportunities, depression, identity issues, and self-confidence. I like working with people of all backgrounds regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, national origin, ancestry, economic status and other diverse backgrounds. I strive to make connections and have you be heard and seen! Office in Southside: Beverly neighborhood

My Background and Approach

It can be hard to be brave in our world, and that includes seeking help from others. I like to look at counseling sessions as a gift of time for yourself. Our time together would be about you and your needs, and figuring out ways to heal or get there. I look forward to creating a trust-filled, healthy relationship to assist you on yourself. At times, therapy sessions may just be a backboard for you to comfortably release stress or inner thoughts. My approach in therapy strives to be strength-based, empowering, grounding and calming. For talk therapy, I pull from a variety of styles, which would naturally come up in our meetings and working together. I can incorporate creative arts as a relaxation and expression tool as you are interested. As a certified yoga teacher, I may invite you to explore how stretches can help dislodge and relax in ways that talk therapy or a bubble bath might not always do the trick. Movements are always your choice in session, and it’s not a requirement.
