About My Clients
You are the expert in you & your experiences, and everyone needs help sometimes. My clients often reach out because they are feeling stuck, are trying to recover from trauma and/or past harm, seeking to reclaim parts of their lives, or seeking relief from current stressors. I work with adults (18+) through trauma recovery (including religious/ spiritual trauma), faith transitions, life transitions, anxiety, chronic stress, body image concerns, and more.
My Background and Approach
I received my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Johns Hopkins University (2017). I am a licensed therapist in California (LPCC) and Maryland (LCPC). I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC) which means I have education and training that meets more requirements than state licensure, and I meet the standards for continuing education on up-to-date information in the field. I follow an integrative model to therapy, combining a variety of theoretical approaches which are dependent on your needs. My foundational approach to therapy is person-centered, strengths-based, and trauma informed. Some other theoretical orientations that I integrate include a somatic approach, parts work, narrative work, Adlerian therapy, ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy), and TF-CBT (trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy).
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am passionate about working from a Health At Every Size®, body-liberation, and anti-oppressive framework. I believe that you are a complete and whole individual already. Depression, anxiety, trauma, and other life experiences or conditions can create blocks in life that prevent you from thriving. Healing can be uncomfortable; however, healing does allow us to step into ourselves and lives in new and healthier ways. Working with me in therapy is an avenue to help you address roadblocks, process trauma, access and discover your strengths, and develop individualized mental health tools. You are the expert in you & your experiences, everyone needs help sometimes, and trust & safety are foundational to a therapeutic relationship. No matter what brings you here, my goal is to work and collaborate together.
