About My Clients

Are you a young adult struggling to manage everything going on in your life? Do you feel like you're just not able to say no to people? Are you stuck in relationships and cycles that don't serve you anymore? Have you had painful experiences in your past that seem to keep popping up and affecting you currently? I was a young adult struggling with the same issues until I found a trusted therapist who saved my life. You can't pour from an empty cup - it's time to figure out how to fill yours.

My Background and Approach

I often operate from a Relational Cultural theoretical background - I believe that connection with others, access to resources, and expression of the self through art, craft, movement, activism, or otherwise, are key tenants in wellness. Though the techniques I use to work with you will depend on your individual needs, I like to integrate a variety of tools in the therapy room that may not fall under the "traditional" therapeutic lens. I'm down to "go there" with you, no matter how "woo-woo" things seem to be. I've worked together with clients to explore ideas like astrology, spirituality, dreamwork, crystal-healing, and even the paranormal, in order to better help them heal. No matter what, I promise to provide you unconditional support and acceptance. Together, we'll dig deep to work through the things that feel dark and I'll support you in discovering meaningful coping skills, exploring the values that are important to you, and learning to hold boundaries that help keep you safe.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every person is unique and can benefit from a multitude of ways to heal - whether it be through traditional therapeutic methods or otherwise. I'm not a therapist who believes I have all of the answers - I believe my clients are the experts of their own lives and that I am lucky enough to help support them through that journey. I believe that transparency is important and honestly is paramount. I'll always be real with you and won't give you the run-around. I welcome and affirm all expressions of identity and I am also committed to providing equitable and accessible services to the clients I work with. I'm a therapist who sees a therapist and believe it's important for me to "walk the talk" to truly understand the work I'm inviting my clients to do. On the weekends, you can find me rollerblading through town, spinning fire with friends, or getting down to live music.
