About My Clients

Ever curious about human stories and our varied life experiences, I find that I work well with individuals who are also curious about and interested to better understand themselves more.

My Background and Approach

As a psychotherapist, I am a collaborator with my clients, who I believe are the expert on their lives. I am deeply committed to creating a space where clients can learn about themselves as they move through the struggles of life. We are all dynamic human beings and we all deserve a space to understand all our complex parts. I draw from a client-centered, psychodynamic, narrative, and cognitive approach to psychotherapy, utilizing various interventions from other modalities that meet each client individually. Generally, this means that I focus on what’s happening now while I also seek to better understand early relational experiences. I am curious to understand how the past and the present intersect while also seeking to understand how our narratives affect how we understand the world in front of us. At the bottom-most level, I am searching for the core need, and how behavior is a response to getting those needs met.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that access to quality mental health services is a human right, and should be available to all humans. In addition to my work in private practice, I also work at a medication-assisted-treatment (MAT) out-patient program for people struggling with substance use.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
