About My Clients

ā€œI prefer animals over people,ā€ is something I often hear my clients say. It's hard to let people "in" and see the real you. For many people it is our pets who truly get to see us flaws and all. However, we all yearn for connection and acceptance from others even if it may feel impossible to get. You may have tried self help books on anxiety and depression but that does not help in the long run. It can be frustrating to know what you need to do to but some how fall short in making those changes

My Background and Approach

I am a pretty laid back therapist, often coming to work in flip flops and jeans. Clients often say it feels like they are sitting talking to a friend rather than a psychologist. We will spend time addressing what is going on in your life currently but also spend time making sense of your past. While sitting in the deep emotional work together I typically quote random movies and at times we will share a laugh to bring some levity while discussing difficult topics. You will never have to guess what I am thinking as I will openly share that with you. If you have your pet next to you during our session, I will enlist their help in our work. I find that they let me know you are struggling even when you tell me that you are doing well. A cat butt in the camera often tells me that you need some extra support. Finding a therapist that truly "gets" you is so important. I offer a free 15 minute session to help you determine if we would be a good fit to work together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I help clients who feel stuck to heal and create new meaning through their suffering. Using a multicultural lens we explore how their environment may have contributed to their struggles. We often focus on changing ourselves to fit the world when perhaps we can find ways for the world to better adapt to us. I believe in the healing power of animals and put significant value on that bond. I encourage you to come to your virtual sessions with your pet by their side. Having them sit next to you will help you explore deeper issues in therapy with greater ease.
