About My Clients

I help individuals, couples, relationship partners, and adult family members build more confidence and trust in themselves and with others. Clients often begin treatment longing for more connection with themselves, and more effectiveness in their relationships. They may have experienced a chaotic upbringing or relationship traumas in the past, and are frustrated with their history continuing to impact their present. We work toward building increased freedom, meaning, and joy in their lives.

My Background and Approach

I draw from a number of approaches to help my clients reach their goals including mindfulness, attachment theory, cognitive behavioral elements, feminist theory, social justice, and a holistic strengths-based perspective. Ultimately, my approach is tailored to meet the needs of each client, and I work with each client to identify what would be most helpful. I am passionate about providing inclusive, compassionate, tailored care to help you move toward your goals
