About My Clients

I work with individual adults who feel challenged by their relationship with themselves and their relationship to others. The details of what this looks like looks different for everyone. Some have trouble trusting themselves or others; others are looking to reclaim their self-worth. Some are seeking the right to set and claim boundaries and others are polarized by a strong judging internalized inner critic. However it looks for you, you are welcome here.

My Background and Approach

My approach to counseling is compassion centered, trauma-informed and non-pathologizing. Working together to create a sense of safety and trust is my highest priority. Thus, when we sit together I don’t consider it my job to ‘fix you’ but rather, to be with you. It is in being with you and bringing awareness and kindness to you exactly as you are that we can begin to create safety in our relationship together and grieve and heal past and present challenges. I aim to help you rediscover an authentic way of being in the world that strengthens your relationship with yourself and others and moves you toward what you most want in life. If desired, I offer additional tools to support you in new awareness, growth and insights along this journey. These include psychoeducation, experiential exercises, play therapy, and self-compassion practices. Most central to our work--and what I consider most vital to healing/growth--is the sensitive witnessing and deep presence of a non-judgemental other.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work to cultivate a therapy climate that is responsive to the concerns of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and personal identities. I bring particular awareness and humility to issues of power and privilege and the centering/decentering of certain experiences to my work with poor/working class, POC, and LGBTQIA individuals. I consider a key part of being a good therapist doing one’s own personal work. The more I have examined and continue to examine my own biases and do my own personal work of healing and integrating, the more you can count on me to sensitively welcome in all of your feelings and help you sit with and move through them too.
