About My Clients

I work with folks from all walks of life with complex stories and experiences. I'm particularly skilled at helping those who are struggling with anxiety, people-pleasing, low self-worth, perfectionism, attachment wounds, and painful past relationship experiences. Folks often come to me to explore parts of their identity, to reconnect witho who they are, and to examine themselves deeply. I work within an intersectional perspective to cultivate a space that is inclusive and welcoming to all.

My Background and Approach

I believe you are the expert on yourself, your life, and your experiences, so I will meet you where you are and work collaboratively to explore where you’d like to go. Together, we'll seek balance between acceptance of yourself as you are while courageously challenging and changing unhealthy patterns that prevent you from living the life you want. In our work together, we will honor your intersecting identities and how they influence the way you see and experience the world. We will also acknowledge the sometimes painful realities of the human experience and discover ways to cope with them. My approach is modern and eclectic, integrating EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and narrative techniques with psychodynamic, feminist, existential, and humanistic theories. This means I draw from multiple modalities to personalize your treatment based on your needs. My goal is to help you find clarity and healing while creating meaningful and sustainable change.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe that every person has a story to tell and deserves a safe, affirming, and nonjudgmental space to tell them. Through curiosity, authenticity, and compassion (& some humor), I strive to cultivate an empathetic and supportive environment for you to embrace vulnerability and bring your whole self into treatment, whatever that looks like for you. I will help you explore aspects of the past, challenges in the present, and hopes for the future to create the life you want while leaning into your natural strengths (yes, they're there, I promise!). As your therapist, I am a real and approachable person. You’re allowed to crack jokes with me. You’re allowed to swear (I'll probably join you). Most importantly, you're allowed to be yourself.
