About My Clients

I strive to create a supportive and welcoming environment where clients feel safe, comfortable, and accepted. You may have a goal in mind, even if that goal is to simply feel "better." I collaborate with clients to tailor their sessions based on their needs, feedback, and goals. Together, we'll explore and discover the most beneficial approach for your individualized care. You are the expert on your own life, and I hope to be a source of guidance and support along your journey.

My Background and Approach

My training and experiences focus primarily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other solution-focused models, and I frequently incorporate mindfulness training into sessions. My education is specialized in Sport, Performance, and Health Psychology, which focuses on healthy lifestyles, athletic performance, goal achievement, teamwork and collaboration, recovery from injury or surgery, and mental toughness. We’ll address how you’re feeling now, explore worries about the future, and process events of the past to help you feel more balanced in the present.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the power of positivity, unconditional positive regard, and acceptance for people from all walks of life. My past work includes spreading awareness for the importance of mental health to remove historical stigma against those seeking help for their mental health concerns. I am open about my own struggles and successes with disordered eating, depression, and anxiety with the hope my personal experiences will allow me to express genuine empathy and understanding for my clients. I am deeply passionate about acceptance and fighting for equality among races, genders, socioeconomic statuses, and sexual orientations. I actively evaluate my own privilege and continuously challenge myself to expand my cultural competencies. I am sex positive and maintain an open, accepting environment for clients to express their individual kinks, quirks, and lifestyles. Personally, my own lifestyle includes a passion for sports and watching live music at festivals or concerts.
