About My Clients

Do you feel like your life is out of control? Or perhaps it's too in control? Are you tired of trying to be perfect? Do you need support to manage your anxiety or depression more effectively? Are you struggling with relationships in your life, and you aren't sure how to improve them? It can all seem like a lot to change, but you have everything you need to make changes and get the life you really want to live. Let's work together to help you get there.

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.

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.
