About My Clients

As a college and grad student, your life seems to be filled with so many decisions that will "make or break" your future. You can't turn your brain off because there's so many classes and roles that are requiring you to make the "right" decision. You have trouble sleeping. You're struggling with that voice inside your head saying "you're not doing enough" or "you're a failure." For years, you've done what everyone else wanted of you, now you're not really sure where you fit or what you enjoy.

My Background and Approach

As your therapist, I'll bring a warm, non-judgmental, and caring demeanor into session to help you process and find what matters most to you. I find great joy in supporting clients process through anxiety, depression, and traumatic events. I'm also fully trained in EMDR and can use this to help you deal with difficult memories. Asking for help and putting in the work is HARD! Be gentle with yourself as you go about this! The good news, you won't have to do it alone. Let's find what fits most for you so you can live a fulfilling, joy-filled life!
