About My Clients

My clients are creative, introspective individuals and couples looking for insight and change. They know that vulnerability pays off and they are willing to try to "go there" with me. They bring a lot to the table; I always feel honored to hear their stories and be a part of their lives. Therapy sucks because you're no longer avoiding your pain - you're sitting with it and saying "I see you, I hear you, I'm going to try to help you", and I want to support you through this process.

My Approach to Helping

My favorite people to work with are those who are trying to understand who they are and what they want their life to be. Maybe they're in college, maybe they just went through a break-up, or maybe they're about to retire. With these types of challenges comes anxiety, depression, obsessive thinking, and plenty of distress. There also comes growth. My approach is with mindfulness, attachment theory, and existential theory. Mindfulness is all about focusing on the present moment in a non-judgmental way. Life is going to have its ups and downs, and that is normal and perfectly okay. Often it's like we're riding a roller coaster; mindfulness is just trying to help us see that we're on a roller coaster, not trying to take us off of it. Attachment theory helps us understand why we are the way we are, and existential theory helps us make meaning of our lives.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe that the benefits of therapy come not just from knowledge and master's degrees, but from providing a space where people feel wholly accepted for who they are. We face so much rejection in this world - from relationships, family, co-workers, and ourselves. In therapy, you can learn what it's like to truly be accepted, flaws and all. Through that, my hope is that you can learn to accept yourself. I also value collaboration in therapy. I have knowledge in psychology, but you have knowledge about what it’s like to be you or to be in your relationship. I want us to work together to help you reach your goals.
