About My Clients

I have experience with adults and teens struggling with addiction, substance abuse, interpersonal difficulties, life transitions, grief, loss, chronic pain, terminal illness, and with individuals who identify as queer, non-binary, gender non-conforming, trans, gay, lesbian, bisexual. We all deserve space to heal. I am here to help hold that space with you.

My Background and Approach

My hope as a therapist is to work with the client to cultivate a safe and courageous space to begin to explore from a holistic lens (mind, body and spirit). We each come into this work through a unique context of intersecting identities and experiences that deserve to be honored. My work is trauma informed and I understand trauma as something that can be experienced interpersonally, generationally, and systemically. Creativity, compassion, and curiosity are central to my work as I also incorporate somatic understanding, expressive arts, and a person-centered approach that focuses on what you want to work on. I take an integrative approach to therapy, rooted in humanistic, psychodynamic and relational perspectives. I also weave in cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral and mindfulness approaches into my work, so that you may develop skills to bring about more immediate shifts in mood and sense of wellness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We welcome you. We will welcome you regardless of your present status; anxious, sad, angry, lonely, happy, questioning, depressed, lost or otherwise. We will welcome you regardless of your current family situation, relationship or marital status or lack thereof. We will welcome you if you have been to therapy in the past, are looking to come in for the first time, or have no idea what to expect. We will not judge you based upon your personal history, age, race, ethnic background, appearance, sexual orientation or gender identity. We welcome all beliefs, religions, spirituality, and affiliations. We welcome children, even when they act like children. We welcome adults, families, couples, and we welcome you. We welcome your tears, your laughter, your thoughts, your moods, your journey, and your story. We are all in this together, trying to find our way. All are welcome. You are welcome.
