About My Clients

People who are new to therapy tend to choose me as their therapist, and I enjoy being on this journey with them. People who have experienced trauma, including childhood trauma, often choose me as their therapist, and we approach the work slowly and thoughtfully. Individuals going through life transitions, experiencing depression or anxiety (who hasn't during COVID?), parents, couples, adoptive and foster families, adoptees, trans-racial adoptive families, are also typical clients of mine.

My Background and Approach

My approach is gentle and eclectic, person-centered and collaborative. You are the expert of yourself and sometimes it's helpful to have someone to listen to understand. I like to provide validation, exploration, and support. First timers to therapy and those taking the leap to try out therapy again seem to appreciate my style. Whether you are rediscovering yourself, going through a stressful time, wanting to process trauma, etc., I'll be here alongside you. I consider the family system, childhood/caregiver attachment, parenting styles, generational trauma, systemic racism, larger society, etc. and all these impacts. Building trust and rapport within the therapeutic relationship is important to me. I won't have all the answers, but we will explore together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a parent and I know that parenting is one of the hardest jobs you can have, and “adulting” while parenting is hard too. I like to normalize this hard stuff and validate feelings. I believe that we are all out there trying to do our best. Social justice, anti-racism, anti-oppressive practices, dismantling white supremacy, are all important to me. I openly support Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ+ community, and continuous development for myself as a white cis gender woman.
