About My Clients
I work with adults, adolescents, romantic partners, and families across a variety of areas: identity exploration (emerging adulthood, spiritual, sexual/romantic orientation, gender, etc.), depression, anxiety, trauma, betrayal, family of origin/attachment issues, relationship distress, sexual functioning, ADHD, creatives, geek/nerd culture, and more.
My Background and Approach
I believe therapy is a process of meeting people where they are & helping them navigate the path to where they want to be. You can expect a thoughtful and collaborative approach that is tailored to your specific needs & values your autonomy. My integrative relational style involves clarifying what gives your life meaning & purpose, compassionate curiosity of yourself & your most important relationships, & helping you live a fulfilling, valued life. Together, we will create an environment of mutual trust, respect, & safety that honors the complexity of your unique human experience & identities. I am out-of-network and can provide a “super bill” for you to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Each policy is different, so be sure to check your OON benefits with your insurance company . For more information on use of insurance, please visit: https://thechrysaliscenter.com/common-questions/
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that if we can be authentic with ourselves and others, we inspire people to share their authentic selves with us and create genuine connection. My commitment is to value everyone with respect to the intersections of race, religion, class, relationship structure, sexual orientation, gender expression, & all other identities that make up who you are.
