About My Clients

The people I work best with are individuals who are motivated to make a change. While I have experience working with a range of issues, folks typically come to me to work through their anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relationship/boundary issues, sexuality exploration, and navigating life after an abusive relationship.

My Background and Approach

I approach all of my clients from a stance of openness and curiosity. During sessions, I use a combination of honest communication and metaphors. My approach is collaborative and I welcome feedback throughout the counseling process to make sure we are on the same page. I am trained in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and EMDR, and have experience using several other approaches. I believe that experiencing uncomfortable emotions and thoughts is a normal part of being human and I work with my clients to start embracing these experiences, rather than avoiding them. Each person has a different idea of what it means to live a life fulfilled, and therefore I work with my clients to identify the values that are most important to them to guide our work together. Within sessions, I utilize elements of mindfulness to help increase awareness of the self and the world around us.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

While I don't subscribe to the belief that "everybody needs a therapist", I do believe a lot of people could benefit from therapy at various parts of their life. Feeling sad and worried are as much a part of being human as feeling content or happy, and sometimes our difficult emotions can be a way for us to identify what is most important to us. I believe that people can find purpose and hope even after the most difficult of situations. The forest is able to regrow after a wildfire. Continued learning is one of my biggest values, and I am often between a book (or two) and trainings, about topics both within the field and out of it. I am a human being like you, and therefore I make sure I am working on my own "stuff", by seeing my own therapist and spending time in activities that are life-giving to me. Cost can often be a barrier to individuals seeking treatment, therefore I base my fees on a sliding scale to be more accessible.
