About My Clients

Do you struggle with being able to manage your emotions? Do you feel that your emotions are in control of your life instead of you? When are you someone who is more sensitive or more reactive, it can sometimes feel like life is happening to you instead of you living your life. I know a lot of tools and techniques to use to help you feel back in control of your life and am here to support you through the up and downs that naturally happen along the way.

My Background and Approach

I am someone who will carry hope for you until you can carry it yourself. I believe strongly in everyone's capacity to change, learn, and build themselves the life they want. I want people to feel that their life is their own, not one controlled by others or emotions. I want to help my clients understand the power they have to change trajectories and build their life worth living. I have extensive training in DBT which is my main treatment modality and use it in my personal life as well as with my clients. I have been trained in TF-CBT, PCIT, SPACE and MATCH-ADTC. The common theme among my trainings are that they are evidence based treatments to help address issues such as anxiety, depression, conduct, and trauma. I provide focused treatment targeting specific areas of concerns with the goal of increasing self awareness, creating a tool kit to manage difficulty emotions, and reducing the symptoms that are getting in the way of living the life you want.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a strong believer in balance. I think its once of the aspects of DBT that drew me in as a clinician. I believe in being flexible in order to be happier and push myself and my clients to see the wisdom in that. I believe that intentionality is important and can create purpose and want to live my life fully and do that by living with intention. I strongly believe that everyone is worthy of being treated with dignity and respect and struggle to tolerate injustice happening around me. I am someone who will speak up for the people around me who don't know how or don't feel like that can so that they know they are worth fighting for. My interests revolve around things most call "nerdy". I enjoy playing video games (on multiple platforms), reading fantasy and science fiction, playing D&D, and MTG. I also enjoy expressing myself through poetry and in the past have shared what I have written with clients to help them feel connected and understood.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
