About My Clients

I specialize in working with folks who have experienced trauma, folks with relational concerns including family of origin and other significant relationships, Portuguese speakers, veterans, and people of color, in addition to providing services to clients with a range of presenting concerns. I enjoy working with clients who are ready to commit to their healing and growth, in a space that is collaborative and supportive.

My Background and Approach

If you want to feel more connected to yourself and others, to feel more wholehearted and present and less overwhelmed or "stuck," to work through experiences in your past, and/or to feel more confident in breaking unhelpful patterns in your life, we may be a good fit. My approach is authentic and transparent, prioritizing the therapeutic relationship as the foundation of our work. I draw from a number of approaches to help my clients reach their goals including mindfulness, attachment theory, cognitive behavioral elements, feminist theory, social justice, and a holistic strengths-based perspective. Ultimately, my approach is tailored to meet the needs of each client, and I work with each client to identify what would be most helpful.
