About My Clients

I am a generalist, which means I am schooled in multiple therapy areas. I specialize in trauma and adolescents. These are the areas in which I have extensive training. I work with people recovering from sexual abuse and teens struggling with school and life in general. I understand the challenges of anxiety and depression and what it means to battle them in your daily life. It can be very frightening facing the monsters in your head, but I can be a safe person to allow that to happen.

How I Can Help You

I tailor my approach to meet the needs of my clients. Therapy with me is not a one size fits most approach. I do start with holistic methods. Working to ensure that you are meeting the needs of your mind, body, and soul. These tools can be as simple as excusing yourself to take a bathroom break that is really for a breathing practice, or an afternoon meditation practice. I am aware some people do need medication, but I work to make this the last resort option. I am a mindfulness practitioner. This means I try to work to get my clients in the present moment. We spend so much time in future thought. Our brains get anxious thinking about the pitfalls of the future. What about appreciating the moment you are in currently. This is possible but it will take practice. I am an LGBTQ ally. My life's experiences have led me to appreciate everyone for who they are in this moment. No judgments. Who needs a judgy therapist when there are so many people in our lives who already fill that role.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe yoga is medicine. It helps me connect to my body. It has led me to joining a non-profit board called The Shanthi Project. This program brings mindfulness practices into the juvenile justice system, schools, and local prisons. It is also expanding to meet the needs of people in business. I have also done my own work in therapy and understand how scary it can be. It involves the courage to share the truths that possibly only you know. I understand this relationship is sacred. I may be the only other person who knows the things that scare you. I also understand how well therapy works if you commit yourself to the process. It takes time and patience, if you are honest with yourself and your therapist it can be an amazing experience. Lastly, I am an advocate. I remember clearly when this happened. I was 13 and I participated in an AIDS walk in Arizona for a family friend. From that day, I knew it meant a lot to fight for people who are marginalized. I am an LBGTQ ally.
