About My Clients

My clients often struggle with perfectionism and the anxiety and depression that accompany it. It can feel like you're doing everything in your power to be the very best... and nothing measures up. Or maybe you really are the best at what you do, and the pressure to maintain that is overwhelming you. Either way, it can be exhausting and lead to significant anxiety and depression. Let's work together to find your way to a happier state of being. You don't have to be perfect to be happy!

My Background and Approach

I'm a social worker, and that means that I look not only at what you're thinking and feeling, but also what's going on in your life that might be impacting you. In addition to what many people think of as traditional talk therapy, I assign homework - skills to practice outside of session that ultimately help you reach your goals. We'll identify concrete actions you can take to make changes, and then follow up on your home practice to see what works for you and what might need to be adjusted. I typically practice from a behaviorist perspective, meaning that we work to change behaviors to improve your life. We will also spend time looking at the way your thoughts impact your behaviors and ways to change them. I practice from several modalities, and I typically incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into most of my practice. I have found DBT to be especially effective and supportive of the changes my clients want to make. I also use Brainspotting frequently in my practice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Although I don't necessarily designate them as specialties, I have developed special skills for working with the LGBTQ+ population, those with chronic medical conditions, and those in recovery from extremely conservative religious upbringings. I believe in providing services to those who need them most, so I offer sliding scale fee spots on my caseload.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
