About My Clients

Life can bring all kinds of changes, some good, some unexpected and some difficult. Learning how to approach the ups and downs of life is a personal journey and everyone deserves a safe space to explore the tools that will best work for them. If you are going through changes in life and want to explore how you can bring your own values to find solutions, I am available to collaborate with you. I am committed to creating a non-judgmental atmosphere where we can look at life's challenges and find

My Background and Approach

I am an intuitive and empathetic therapist with a background in anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I bring my trauma informed education to support you in finding the tools and resources that work with where you are at in your life. My background with corporations has allowed me to gain unique insights into the way systems and institutions can impact mental health. Working in corporate recruiting I have supported individuals through life transitions and brought these insights as well as my training in clinical psychology. The ability to merge insights from the corporate world and the psychological one allows me to remain pragmatic and open-minded in my approach to our sessions. My clinical work has also given me experience with spiritual trauma, family issues, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, substance abuse and maintenance of sobriety. I work under the supervision of Erin Johnston, MSW, LCSW.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We live in a complex, contradictory and sometimes painful world. Sometimes in trying to give to everyone, you cannot give as much to the relationships that are the most important – much less to yourself! You are not broken and you are doing your best to navigate your connections and personal values. My goal is to understand your issues in the context of your unique experience rather than a pathological perspective. I can’t wait to meet you and learn about who you are and what is important to you. As a therapist I am intuitive and collaborative. I want to hear you and understand your story. I don’t know the answers for you, but our sessions are a safe place for us to find them together. By partnering with you, you find yourself supported in making the changes you want. You can live a fulfilling life, with strong connections, all while taking care of you.
