About My Clients
Is it time to invest in yourself? There is so much pressure for young adults to “be successful” and fit into the expectations of others, that we often forget to listen to our own voice and what it is that we want. Reading this and making that first phone call is the hardest step in becoming “unstuck” and figuring out a way to move forward. Asking for help in processing through these challenges shows the strength and courage needed to make meaningful changes, that are within your control.
My Background and Approach
I am licensed counselor with over 15 years of experience specializing in helping people cope with their experiences during life transitions. Whether you are struggling with self-confidence, feelings of sadness/loneliness, anxiety, depression, gender or sexual identity, intimacy or social connections, seeking a deeper understanding of self, or maybe you are unsure of what it is you are feeling, my goal is to help you navigate thought those issues and achieve the meaning you are searching for out of life. My counseling approach includes empowering people to find their own voice and life direction, while identifying the values that are important to them. My clients would describe me as genuine, invested in their treatment, non-judgmental, open-minded, honest and straightforward. I have training and skills in various therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Trauma focused CBT.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I pride myself in being a disability advocate and I am committed to inclusivity. I am an ally to LGBTQIA+ and support racial justice and equality. I work hard to identify my own biases and privilege, so I can better honor my client's cultural experiences. I both welcome and elicit feedback to ensure that my clients are reaching their goals and getting what they want out of therapy. It is important to find the right fit with a therapist, which is why I offer a free consultation to help you make the right decision for you.
