About My Clients

My foundation as a therapist was built on advocacy work for survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment and stalking. Additionally, I have worked on several college campuses with students as they manage life transitions and stressors that come with this. Lastly, I love working with young adults in processing identity concerns, grief and loss, anxiety, depression and more.

My Background and Approach

Whether this is your first time in counseling or you are looking to build on previous work, finding a therapist that is the right fit is vital. I am passionate about supporting clients by creating a safe, empathetic, judgment-free and welcoming space for them to process difficult experiences, manage life transitions and gain insight. While I have been a counselor for about 2.5 years, I have been working with trauma survivors and building on that knowledge. As a therapist I want to acknowledge the intersection of identities and life experiences that impact one’s identity. With this, I strive to be person-centered working collaboratively with the client to set their own mental health goals. Due to my knowledge and interest in trauma work I am currently working on an EMDR certification and hope to offer this as a modality in the near future.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In the past I have worked as a sexual assault advocate answering a crisis line and being there with someone in one of their darkest moments of trauma. I have also worked in Community Mental Health as a crisis counselor. From this lens I have seen how traumatic events and untreated mental health symptoms can affect someone's life and wellbeing. I hope to work with others through this pain and feel more fulfilled in their lives. I also know that due to your past experiences in the mental health system may make you hesitant to reach out. I hope to be someone who changes that and helps you feel comfortable to not only reach out but put in the work for yourself because you deserve it.
