About My Clients

I work with adults ages 18+ who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationships, and life transitions. I am committed to providing a compassionate and nonjudgmental space in which my clients feel “held”, heard, and less alone.

My Background and Approach

I believe everyone has the capacity to heal and that meaningful transformations take place in the context of safe and supportive relationships, when we feel seen, understood, and accepted unconditionally. When a trusting relationship is cultivated, we discover how trauma may be impacting our lives as well as uncover and address destructive thoughts and behaviors. Together, we process your thoughts, feelings, and experiences to reduce suffering and increase joy and fulfillment. My therapeutic approach is personalized and collaborative, tailored to each client’s unique needs and goals. My practice is strengths-based, trauma-informed, and social justice oriented. My work with adults utilizes a range of techniques including awareness of body sensations, narrative interventions, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies (CBT and DBT), motivational interviewing, and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

All people have the innate potential to heal and find satisfaction and meaning in their lives. However, sometimes what happens to us can overwhelm our ability to cope, and cause feelings of low self-worth, overwhelm, and hopelessness. I think a lot about the ways in which our society is structured to reinforce systemic oppression and inequality. I am mindful that existing within these systems can be stigmatizing, painful, and traumatizing. I will always meet you where you are with patience, warmth, and kindness. My role is to help you identify and access your own inner strengths, resources, and wisdom to move toward positive change. Together we can find a way to bear the pain you are experiencing and move through it. You do not have to do this alone.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
