About My Clients

I work with adults (ages 18 and older) who seek a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore their experiences with alcohol and substance use, other addictions, and trauma. I also work with clients who experience anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and chronic illness. I’m LGBTQIA+ affirming and particularly attuned to the challenges and successes possible in our communities.

My Background and Approach

In our culture of selfies and compare despair, it is easy to feel like an outsider or other. I’m a supportive social worker who practices compassion inside and outside the therapy room. In therapy with me, you are the expert in your life and the director of your therapy experiences. By using a harm reduction perspective to create a safe space in which you can examine, without judgment, your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors, I will meet you where you are, while empowering you to draw on your innate wisdom and strengths as you seek to heal, grow, and live authentically.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I’m dedicated to being a lifelong learner and supporting my clients by upholding the key values of social work: social justice, dignity and worth of every person, and the importance of human relationships, especially the relationship we can create together in therapy. In our work, I can offer you a chance to apply the foundations of self-compassion to your life: self-kindness, shared humanity, and mindfulness practices.
