About My Clients

If you've experienced anxiety, you know how it seems to take control of every area of your life. And every time you make some adjustments in your life to manage the anxiety, it seems to get worse. Or if one problem gets resolved, the anxiety will find something new to latch onto. Pretty soon, you're living by a ridiculous set of rules that the anxiety makes you follow if you want to feel comfortable. But don't worry, there is a way out. You can live the life you want.

My Background and Approach

I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy because it starts from mindfulness and expands outward. Often, we try to deal with problems in life by trying to control our thoughts and feelings, but that way just doesn't work. Trying to control life just seems to make it feel more unmanageable. By focusing instead on your values and goals, we're putting you back in the driver's seat of your life. Anxiety will always be in your life- that's just part of being human. We'll never fully control our life or be able to control others. But when we change our relationship to our thoughts and feelings, we realize that what we can control is our response to life. Once you start to move from avoiding life's experiences to intentionally choosing to go through them, you'll discover a new freedom to be your full self.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy should be accessible to all. As such, I offer a sliding scale fee to people who want long term therapy to ensure that finances are not getting in the way of your ability to get the help you need. I am also seeking out additional training and support in decolonizing therapy including its assumptions and practices. I am a Christian, and I got my therapy degree from Western Seminary with a thorough integration of faith and psychology. For me, my faith underscores the inherent value of each person as well as the hope of healing and wholeness. The majority of my clients are not religious, but if you are Christian and want to integrate faith into our sessions, just let me know. In my free time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, and gardening. On the weekends, I am usually exploring new places in search of tasty new foods or baking my own versions at home.
