About My Clients

I work with all individuals, couples, and families regardless of gender, sexuality, religion, and race. I work with diverse presenting concerns that include (but are not limited to) depression, anxiety, recovery from addictions, eating disorders, trauma, self-harm, identity, grief, and loss. I work through an experiential approach in my aim to have the whole system take accountability and contribute to healthy communication.

My Background and Approach

I believe we are our best selves when we have increased self-esteem and a sense of belonging. My goal is to have you feel better about yourself and support you in whatever difficulties and challenges you, your partner, and your family are facing. We all have family dynamics, gender scripts, and other contextual factors that have contributed to who we are today. I believe therapy centers around discussing all the factors that have made you who you are today and how these influence communication and relationships. I have worked in hospital settings working with ill children and their family's, with female identified clients struggling with disordered eating, body image, low self-esteem, and self harm, with individuals in substance abuse recovery, with folks who were in transition, and with couples on issues relating to infidelity, addiction, transitions, and more since 2013.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It's my belief that problems happen when we don't have a sense of belonging- either within ourselves, our relationships, in our work, in our society, in our culture, or larger environment. Therapy is about creating a sense of belonging and connecting again. I identify as a social justice advocate for those who are marginalized and need someone to help bring hope.

  • Agnosticism
  • Christianity
  • Islam
  • Judaism
