About My Clients

I with clients across the lifespan experiencing a wide range of presenting issues. Many of my clients are young adults navigating college, graduate school, or the transition into the workforce. With significant experience supporting children and adolescents, I have specific training to work with young people struggling with anger, tantrums, or frequent emotional dysregulation. I am also a queer-identified therapist and enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBTQIA+.

My Background and Approach

I practice an integrative approach to therapy that is rooted in relational psychodynamic tradition and focused on affect regulation and emotional validation. I believe that behavior is meaningful and I work with clients to explore the meaning of their behavior and symptoms. My work focuses on establishing an empathetic and non-judgemental relationship with clients and I believe that healthy relationships are key to healing. Through our work together, I support clients in developing insight into their emotional experiences and practical strategies for addressing and managing their concerns.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a white therapist I take an anti-racist stance in my approach to clinical work and welcome any questions from clients or potential clients around how racism, identity, power, and oppressive systems impact the therapist/client relationship. I believe that all people are capable of developing increased insight about themselves and are capable of making changes that will promote their well-being. I feel very grateful to be able to learn from my clients as they explore and grow within the therapeutic process.
