About My Clients

We help you become mentally and emotionally stronger at your CORE. With this focus, any symptom you are having (anxiety, depression, substance abuse, etc.) will be alleviated and change will be more permanent. And since we are all very similar at the core, we work with people of any age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or ability.

My Background and Approach

Our approach to therapy is rooted in the assumption that every person wants to be their best self and live their best life. Sometimes things happen or our needs aren't met, and we are left feeling stuck. Sometimes it can feel like we've fallen off track all together. Either way, the wish to grow and move forward is ALWAYS there. We help patients by drawing out that healthy part of the self. We dismantle their fears to uncover the potential and possibilities that lie beneath the clutter life has piled on top of them. Essentially, we show patients what it feels like to finally be free.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about social equality and justice. I have formed a team of all social workers with values rooted in outreach and service to more vulnerable groups of people. I have tried to think creatively amidst our oppressive systems to create a unique model for therapy that does not allow insurance companies or other third parties interfere with therapeutic treatment. I love being a therapist because I have the absolute honor of REALLY getting to know my fellow humans. I am super proud of the team I have created. They are huge-hearted, compassionate, intelligent, skilled therapists who mean the world to me and to their patients. The comment we get most from outsiders is "Wow, you guys are refreshingly not burned out!" Not sure what that says about the rest of the profession, but I can attest to the vibe on our team! We are in this with all our hearts. Join us :)
