About My Clients
My clients are usually adolescents and young adults, and usually women or non-binary individuals. Together, we address many concerns including anxiety, OCD, specific phobias, panic disorders, life transitions, intimacy and relationship concerns, communication and assertiveness, stress, and depression.
My Background and Approach
I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2018. I utilize a compassionate, collaborative approach and pull from various therapy modalities to find the tools that best fit the individual. You are the expert on your life. I want to collaborate with you to identify your strengths, values, and beliefs. Together, we will explore your emotions, work on areas you would like to focus on and handle obstacles that may be preventing you from living true to yourself. These areas may involve working on problem solving skills, interpersonal skills, coping skills, mindfulness, and becoming more empowered and comfortable with different emotions to understand and accept oneself better overall. It also may include working toward acceptance of things we cannot change on our own.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a social worker, I am committed to social justice and advocacy. I recognize the significant effects that organizational structures and cultural contexts can have on the health and well-being of individuals. I believe in meeting clients where they are at and that we are all more than the worst thing we have done. It is also my belief that creativity and play are important aspects to life and therapy. We can use different hobbies and outlets in supportive, therapeutic ways. Outside of therapy, I love to bake, perform improv comedy, run, paint, listen to podcasts, and enjoy doing nothing while watching TV.
