About My Clients

I enjoy working with adults of all ages who are seeking support, growth, acceptance, & change. Special interests & expertise include assisting individuals with personal crisis management, grief & loss, depression, anxiety, life transitions & adjustments, relationship concerns, & self-worth. I value working with clients on issues related to life review and aging, wellness, illness & disability, communication, creative expression, and provide therapy for medical, academic, & faith professionals.

My Background and Approach

I earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Christian Theological Seminary in 2016. I have worked in private practice, on inpatient units in behavioral health settings, and as an outpatient counselor leading small and large therapy and psychoeducation groups. I was trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, which emphasizes the role our significant early relationships and life experiences may play in what we find challenging today. In addition to my psychodynamic training, I incorporate cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior perspectives, and am clinically oriented towards humanistic, relational, and intersubjective approaches to therapy. I have completed advanced-level work in Relational Gestalt Therapy, and trainings in Mentalization-Based Treatment and Transference-Focused Psychotherapy, both of which emphasize the ways our perceptions of others influence our interactions with them.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Words always have had a fascination for me, with their power to evoke pictures in our minds, helping us envision events, environments, and relationships. I was drawn to journalism, literature, and creative writing, finally finding in poetry the nuanced use of words for what I’ve always felt was their greatest purpose: understanding. As a therapist, I continue to broaden my respect for words & their strength: how difficult it can be to find the words to express what we have experienced, what we are feeling, what we long for, to be heard and understood. I view my role as a therapist as a privilege. I am honored to listen to my clients’ stories, to help them sort through which words can lead, not just to my understanding, but to their own.
