About My Clients

2020 brought immense disruption into our lives. All sense of 'normalcy' was upended. From education to healthcare, many systems failed us. As the world attempts to revive its status quo, you may notice lingering hopelessness, burnout, or anger. Your child may be grappling with loneliness, insecurities, or general disinterest. Therapy can and will lighten these emotional loads. Regardless of your struggle, I am here to help you empower you in creating the change you are seeking.

My Background and Approach

Eight years ago, I discovered my love for the field of mental health care. I have since practiced in a variety of settings to provide outpatient therapy and crisis management to individuals across ages and demographics. Along the way, I earned my B.A. in Psychology from Boston University and my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Denver. In my training, I learned that 80% of treatment outcomes are rooted in the relationship between a therapist and their client. The remaining 20% relies on research based techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I parallel these proportions in my treatment approach. My goal is to partner with you or your loved one in an honest, personalized, curious, and supportive growth environment.

My Values as a Therapist

Our work together will be guided by certain core values I've developed as a provider. Here are my top 10 at the moment: 1) We cannot shame ourselves into feeling good. 2) Progress is not linear. 3) Humor is absolutely necessary in therapy. 4) All behaviors and coping strategies serve an important function, even if they are not sustainable. 5) Research-based treatment techniques must be tailored to each individual patient. 6) "Cultural competence" does not exist - you are the expert on your own experience! 7) The values of our communities and environments significantly impact how we view ourselves and others. 8) Trauma is any experience which overwhelms our internal resources for coping. 9) Psychiatric medication can provide folx a 20% treatment foundation, with therapy offering the remaining 80% of support. Medication is ultimately a personal choice. 10) Therapy is not about 'fixing' you. You are not broken!
