About My Clients

You might be struggling with anxiety, depression, the effects of trauma, and/or the uncertainties of living in this modern & systemically unfair world. These can all manifest in difficulties that keep you from living your fullest life. Fed up with encountering the same road blocks over and over again, you are ready to begin (or deepen) your healing and growth process.

My Background and Approach

My practice is most informed by existentialist, attachment-based, cognitive behavioral, and feminist therapy traditions. Exploring your relationship patterns, existential concerns, and day-to-day stressors through these lenses, we will work together to empower you to make positive choices and to uncover any subconscious internal resistance to living the life you were meant to live. I also have experience in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), a treatment of choice for severe anxiety as well as obsessive compulsive disorder. I tailor my treatment style to the unique needs of each client.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all people are worthy of empathy and capable of change, and for the most part, I think people are doing the best they can. Sometimes, we find that the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that once helped us to survive are now holding us back or even actively causing problems in our lives. With a little exploration and encouragement, we can begin to replace those habits and thoughts with ones that better serve us. Cisgender, white, and straight myself, I aim to provide services that are anti-racist as well as queer- and trans-affirming.
