About My Clients

Does it sometimes feel like you’re trying to pour from any empty cup? Do you find it difficult to control your worry, or haven’t been feeling like your normal self? I specialize in working with stressed college students who want to learn how to manage anxiety and tame overwhelming emotions, people who want to explore gender identity or who need support on their transition journey, and geeks of all kinds.

My Background and Approach

I help those who are feeling overwhelmed with stress or worry learn new tools and insights they need to flourish and stop feeling stuck in life. My approach is integrative and collaborative, meaning that we will pull from approaches that best fit your goals and who you are. I blend teaching practical, evidence-based skills along with deeper exploration to catalyze more enduring change. We will explore what’s holding you back from living the life you want. Together, we will develop new ways of moving through the world to help you feel calmer and more empowered to navigate whatever life throws your way. I am a Geek Therapist and will resonate with those wanting to integrate aspects of nerd culture into therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Everyone holds different identities that weave together to form a unique person.​ Beyond these normal unique differences that we all share, I believe in the importance of paying special attention to identities that have been historically marginalized or oppressed. My approach to therapy attempts to respect and empower those coming from the full range of racial identities, gender identities, class backgrounds, cultural & national backgrounds, able-bodiedness, and religious & spiritual identities. ​Some individuals who hold marginalized identities may feel uncomfortable working with therapists who come from a privileged identity. This is valid, and you deserve to feel safe and empowered in therapy. Because of this, I want to be upfront about my own identities if you believe it may impact your ability to engage fully in therapy. I am a white, non-binary, and generally able-bodied person with some personal experience of chronic illness.
