About My Clients

People who reach out are typically at a crossroads; they’re trying to identify where to go or how to get there. While I enjoy supporting a wide array of people, diagnoses, and concerns, I specialize in the following: -significant life transitions -identity work and self-treatment -communication, boundaries, and relationships -(re)connection to community and the natural world -ecological grief, climate anxiety -emotional regulation -LGBTQ+, neurodiverse, and vegan/vegetarian communities

My Background and Approach

I offer you a therapeutic style that is holistic, non-pathologizing, and compassionate. (That's a fancy way of saying I will treat you like an equal and whole person, not like a research subject.) In person-centered therapy, genuineness on the therapist's end is a key requirement. You will be informed and involved throughout every step, including discussion of goal-setting and progress. First, we will work to fully understand your concerns and goals, then we will co-develop a plan of action. I will balance empathic listening with practical problem-solving, coping skills training, and emotional regulation strategies. In our work together, you'll process relevant experiences, overcome barriers, and reach wellness objectives in various areas of your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My initial experiences as a counseling client were not affirming to me as a queer woman. Fortunately, I later found an excellent provider who helped me visualize and realize the life I wanted for myself. I decided to change careers to try and offer others a better experience too, focusing my initial training on the LGBTQ+ and ENM/poly communities. Prior to 2020, I worked as a contractor to the EPA and continue to stay involved with environmental issues. In fact, I believe that environmental and other systemic issues are not separate from individual concerns, but, in fact, continuously interwoven with them. If we work together, we can explore anything with which you struggle, from the micro to the macro scale and everything in between. As a nature lover who also enjoys gaming, I know how important it is to balance "screen time and green time", which is one part of why I offer both virtual and outdoor therapy.
