About My Clients

If you feel like life isn’t what you want it to be, you’re not connecting with others in the way that feels good to you, or if past patterns are no longer serving you, you’re not alone. I work from a place of compassion, understanding, intuition, and humor combined with an extensive array of therapeutic tools to help you reduce discomfort, heal, and engage in the life you want. I welcome the opportunity to work with people of all identities.

My Background and Approach

You want to reduce the discomfort you feel, but it can feel really daunting and scary to reach out for therapy. Asking for help can put us in a vulnerable place, which can be challenging. I recognize this and work to build a therapeutic relationship that feels safe and trusting. I focus on meeting my clients where they are and consider their unique life experiences, skills, and needs when working with them. My approach is compassionate, collaborative, relational, pragmatic, and non-judgmental. I’ll support you while also encouraging you to do the work you’re capable of doing. If it feels like there’s a lot of work to do, you’ll never get to the end of it, and it feels overwhelming and scary to stir things up, we’ll go slowly and at a pace that feels comfortable for you. You deserve to feel better and you’re worth it.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone has the capacity to heal. When we encounter traumatic or otherwise challenging life situations, we often develop strategies to help us get through those times. Unfortunately, those strategies can impact us later in life. Maybe we've developed a critical inner voice, or we have a hard time connecting with others. Maybe we struggle to set boundaries that we need or we might not even be sure of what we need. We might find ourselves wanting to please everyone around us and feel that we have to be perfect and it's exhausting. Maybe we're showing up in a way that doesn't feel good and isn't how we want to show up, but we don't feel like we know any other way. I value my clients as the people they are and the experiences that shaped them, no matter what those experiences are. I believe that therapists have an obligation to keep learning and growing in order to best serve their clients. I value my training and experience and work every day to keep building on these.
