About My Clients

You want to connect, but too often your efforts end with feeling more alone. There are many miscommunications and hurt feelings. You’re trying to be authentic – but it feels like you’re not heard - not really seen. The last thing you want is to set yourself up to be hurt again. Your plans and interests are little comfort when you feel so isolated and disconnected. Know that this is not how it has to be. You can have the relationships and experiences you want – not settling for what is available.

My Background and Approach

Our sessions are a time for you to focus on the therapy goals you decide. We’ll explore all the angles of what you are dealing with. Through our work, you will get to a place of self-acceptance and emotional well-being – giving you the confidence needed to create real lasting connections. It is an honor to assist you on your journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have a special interest in working with young and emerging adults as well as those struggling with life transitions. My clinical experience and interest has centered around those working through trauma, PTSD, and anxiety issues. It is a true honor helping my clients navigate a difficult time in life, whether due to a tragedy that has changed their life significantly, or due to a new chapter they are beginning. Life transitions include divorce, relationships, moving to a new place, starting college, beginning a new job, becoming a new parent, or navigating a health issue. I approach the therapy session as a curious engaged participant. While sometimes the work can be difficult and painful, I work to ensure that view your sessions as a positive experience and important part of your self care routine.
