About My Clients

I work with adolescents, emerging adults, and the people who support their life transitions: college and leaving home, gender identity, and serious relationships. I create clear boundaries, and treat with authenticity and humor. Body positive, action-oriented, culturally responsive, compassionate realism.

My Background and Approach

My style has been described as approachable & real. I use humor (when appropriate of course) & strive to be aware of the influences of culture, power, & privilege on relationships including the therapeutic relationship. I use a client focused approach; in other words, the client is the true expert on themselves & my role is to help focus that expertise towards a client-set goal. My work pulls from several therapeutic theories including mindfulness practice, solution-focused approaches, collaborative problem solving, cognitive behavioral therapy, skill building, narrative theory, & motivational interviewing. My work has uniquely prepared me to support parents of teens, particularly teens dealing with anxiety, depression, ADHD, ASD, developmental disabilities, as well as parents of kids who identify as LGBTQIA+. I have extensive training in educational psychology, ed disabilities, & ed and disability laws.
