About My Clients

I work with individuals and couples struggling with depression/anxiety. Clients looking for support, encouragement, building specific skills to help address symptoms and a deeper understanding of why they do what they do often enjoy therapy with me. I work with a lot of clients experiencing loss & grief, trauma and attachment injuries, and mood disorders. I also do a lot of work with pregnant individuals and couples navigating the feelings that come up from parenthood and life transitions.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed clinical social worker. I tend to be described as warm and engaging and use education and humor in my sessions as well. I work with people who struggle with depression, anxiety and changes in their lives. I also have been specially trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused-CBT, Expressive arts therapies and a number of different models to address trauma, attachment and grief work. I also have completed training in peripartum and post partum mood disorders, which means I can help people looking to begin a family or navigate the feelings around shifts in roles/relationships as your family grows. Adjusting to parenthood can be a challenge and it definitely can impact your relationship with your self and your partner. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples as well as the Gottman Method, so I do a lot of work with couples - helping them deepen their intimacy, rebuild trust and learn how to communicate and resolve conflicts.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the possibility for change and growth. I think hope is an integral part of the work we do in therapy - reminding people that even when it feels really challenging, things can move and change and be better. I also believe in people's innate worth and goodness. Even when we have parts of our selves that we are scared to show others, in therapy we can explore those pieces in a safe and non-judgmental way, which can help us learn to accept ourselves fully and heal.
