About My Clients

Your teen is in crisis or your family is at a stuck point. It can be overwhelming to get help but you know it’s time to see a therapist. You may be looking for an expert opinion, reassurance, clarity, or all of the above. You want find a therapist who can easily put you or your child at ease. What if therapy is a chance to hear yourself laugh again or reconnect with your relationships? I look at all parts of your life - your strengths and support, where you come from, and where you want to go.

My Background and Approach

Building on my experiences in community mental health, I support individuals and families finding themselves in need of a conversationalist, a sounding board, and a guide to get them through life's ups and downs, with special interest in adolescence, family life, aging, and birth & postpartum. The framework I view therapy through is based in neurology & brain development, attachment theory, and depth psychology. I combine practical tools with inner leadership to empower people on their life's journey. With over five years experience in youth-specific mental health care, I am intimately knowledgeable about a wide spectrum of needs including cutting and suicidal thoughts; gender and sexual identity; trauma and grief/loss. I use evidence based techniques like mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, art interventions, ACT, and DBT. I have hours and hours and hours of listening under my belt, and the practice it takes to truly hear you and reflect back your inner wisdom.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a social worker, I ascribe closely to our code of ethics, including the dignity & worth of every human. While working as a community organizer in a multicultural neighborhood, I discovered what it means to be an activist therapist, that my liberation is bound with that of others. I believe that white supremacy culture harms all of us and that people with privilege need a different type of healing and awareness to imagine a future where equity is realized.
