About My Clients
As a young adult navigating the exciting/messy/complex work of self discovery, finding out there's NO ROADMAP (!) for any stage of adulthood can leave you searching outside yourself for direction, acceptance, & approval. Trying to be who others want you to be, shrinking yourself mentally or physically to fit arbitrary standards- it's not only exhausting, it sacrifices your independence & self worth. It's time to let go of people pleasing & reclaim the power of your authentic beautiful existence.
My Background and Approach
I provide individual therapy & love collaborating & working with tweens, teens & young adults who are navigating this transitional period of exploration. It is normal for big feelings to accompany change & growth- supporting young people as they attempt to cope with those feelings can make all the difference. My integrative approach to therapy is relational, strengths based, and nonjudgemental. I prefer incorporating multiple modalities to best cultivate a space of collaboration, trust, & vulnerability that is unique to each individual. After working in school-based settings for 9 years, I have specific expertise in the transition from middle to high school as well as high school to post-secondary programs of all kinds. In addition to transition support, I also have experience processing grief, anxiety, body image/disordered eating concerns, communication and relationship issues, and improving self worth.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Cultivating a space where all identities feel validated & respected enables vulnerability & growth. My approach is LGBTQIA+ affirming, 'Health At Every Size' informed, & works to challenge and disrupt systems of oppression. I bring my authentic self (including my laughter, tears & sarcasm) into the room & invite you to do the same. I look forward to connecting with you!
