About My Clients

You are probably feeling vulnerable and wonder if anyone can even help you. You’ve been through a lot, surviving everyday by frantic busyness or numbing out. You might even wonder if you are making the whole thing up sometimes. Maybe it seems like no one really understands. I can help you heal, so you can emerge from pain to reach your full potential. I will never promise it will be easy, but I can promise it will be worth it.

My Background and Approach

I prioritize evidence-based, trauma-informed individualized approach to therapy. This means that as your provider, I ensure that your therapy is based on your specific goals and needs, meeting you precisely where you are. I make sure you know that you are always in charge of your care, offering options and rationale. The techniques I use are evidence based and I like to explain the why behind how we are working. My clinical specializations include trauma and eating disorders. My approach is focused on body liberation, equity, and affirming your identity. All humans are welcome here. My expertise and extensive training is focused on trauma and eating disorder work. I am trained in EMDR, sandtray therapy and Trauma-Focused CBT. I strive for the environment to be calm and soothing. I keep the therapeutic relationship casual yet professional. It is important that you feel safe and secure in session. You will never be judged for anything you share here. Confidentiality is a top priority.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe anyone can change. While our past can change us, it does not define us. I believe anyone can live a life free from anxiety and self harm. I firmly believe in equity and am constantly striving towards creating an equitable focused environment.
