About My Clients

Many of my clients see themselves as introverted, creative and/or highly sensitive. I work with people facing a variety of challenges, including depression, anxiety, shyness, self-criticism, life transitions, difficulty in relationships, and the effects of racism, sexism, homophobia, and trauma. // Note that I'm considered an out-of-network provider by all insurance carriers.

My Background and Approach

I believe that we all have the innate capacity to heal from trauma, improve our relationships, and work toward the lives we want. But we often get in the way of our own growth — by relying on outdated coping strategies, disconnecting from ourselves and others, and letting critical inner voices run our lives. As your counselor, I will collaborate with you to explore old patterns and overcome barriers to wellness so that you have access to greater fulfillment, authenticity, and ease. My work is grounded in intersectional feminism, attachment theory and relational psychodynamic theory. These approaches underscore my belief that we're all profoundly impacted by our early relationships and the world around us. In session, I hope that you’ll experience me as warm, authentic, and nonjudgmental. I want you to feel safe exploring the parts of your story that might be difficult or painful, because it is through such exploration that healing can take place.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Before becoming a mental health provider, I worked in the non-profit sector as a communications and development professional. Outside of my professional life, I get pretty excited about healthy food, beautiful writing, gentle yoga, insight meditation, public transportation, good coffee, and sunny days in the mountains.
