About My Clients

It's time for a change. My clients reach out because they are ready to dive into their problem areas and heal. Therapy is an opportunity to move closer to the best version of yourself, a self that is balanced and fulfilled and empowered. If you're ready and resonating with what you read, I would love to connect with you.

My Background and Approach

My education is grounded in clinical social work and social justice, so I am well aware of the impact that our flawed systems have on individuals and families. I use this educational background to process the impact of various environmental factors on your life. For example, it might feel important for you to explore how the pandemic has impacted your life, or how your work is causing you stress. I pursued training in Gestalt Therapy after my graduation, because I was drawn to its present-oriented, mindful, relational approach. Each client session is unique and my applied tools diverse. However, to give you an idea, I may incorporate role-play, visualization, identity parts work, mindfulness, and body work into my practice. It is very much an experimentation process for us to see what is helpful for you or not. Ultimately, our in-depth talk therapy work is always dependent on your goals, desires, and energy in session.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone has the right to choose what is right for them and their body. I support freedom and individuality and creative expression. I believe that people are experts of their own lives. I serve as a non-judgmental guide and support in developing heightened self-awareness and insight. Then it is up to you to make the choice and take resonant action.
