About My Clients

You put others first. Listen to everyone’s problems. You try to hold it all together, but it’s so hard. You are there for them because you know what it’s like to hurt. You feel selfish getting your needs met. You have trouble managing your own emotions sometimes, but you set them aside because you don’t want to be a burden. You feel like you have to be perfect to be enough. You want to feel comfortable in your own skin, enough as you are. And you’re ready to work on it.

My Background and Approach

I will help you change your painful patterns of feeling, thinking, and doing, resolve those “not good enough” messages, help discover your authentic, very much “good enough” self, and develop a sense of power and control in your life. I do this with a combination of DBT (feeling, thinking, and doing skills) and EMDR (resolving our pain).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an advocate for true self care, and for slowing ourselves down. Productivity does not equal worth. I actively align with the Health at Every Size philosophy am an ally of the LGBTQ+ community. I’ve worked at a suicide prevention hotline, managed a suicide prevention program, and am trauma informed. Whatever their identity and background, I want to help my clients heal their trauma, feel comfortable as their most authentic selves, and have skills to cope with an invalidating and often traumatizing world. Each one of us is worthy and enough, and we all deserve to see ourselves as such.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
