About My Clients

Do you have difficulty feeling worthy? Are you struggling with feelings of stress, anxiety, or change? Do you wish you felt more at peace with the past, and were able to plan for the future? My practice is accepting consultations with new clients to provide individual counseling for those seeking an empathetic, thoughtful therapist who can provide a safe space to grow their emotional well-being. I have additional expertise in foster care and adoption, for those that need help that understands.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic practice is based in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and attachment-based modalities. I have deeply enjoyed working with diverse populations from all walks of life - from young adults struggling with identity to established couples working on co-parenting and communication. My approach is to consider the whole person, in their environment, and having walked their whole life in their own shoes By joining my practice as a client, you will have access to... - Flexible therapy modalities to fit your unique needs and process - Weekly availability - Ten years of experience with human services, foster care, and adoption - Expertise in parenting approaches for children who have experienced trauma and loss - An empathetic, trauma-informed space where you can be open without judgment

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Every individual needs support and acceptance, and every individual deserves an individual approach - in our time together, I will work to identify interventions and approaches that work best for you. We will identify your goals together, and make the treatment plan to meet those goals together. Creating a welcoming, safe space to explore is vital to me, and it is my job to create a non-judgmental and supportive space for you. My goal is to help you be open and self-reflective, and also to allow you space to be your own advocate and the expert in your own lived experience - I welcome and encourage conversation and exchange. Taking the first step on the path is difficult, and I am here to walk with you.
