About My Clients
There are times in our lives when we just don't feel like ourselves. We notice we're worrying more often, feeling more run down, or disconnected from the person we know we can be. Maybe these challenges crept up over time or perhaps they are from a recent life event, such as becoming a new parent, changing jobs, or losing someone. I like to think of these challenges as our edges: places that might feel like a stopping point, but are really just a pause before we enter a new phase of growth.
My Background and Approach
I come to this work as a full human who has also struggled managing stress, anxiety, and other challenges. I've used and continue to use many of the approaches I've been trained in as a client myself and it's made an incredible impact on my life. While I would never wish challenges with mental well-being on anyone, I am grateful for the gifts of wisdom and compassion that I've received. As a result of my experience, I step into this work truly hopeful that transformational growth can be found through our hardships and therapy can make a space for that. I am passionate about offering therapy that is informed by the latest research and I am fortunate to have been taught by some of the best in the field.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in the power of therapy and I don’t think it’s the answer to all of our problems, especially as a collective society. There are larger systems at play that make being a person hard, such as racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, etc. (unfortunately this list can go on for quite a while). I am a constant work in progress learning about these systems and finding my own way towards challenging them. I can’t promise perfection, but I hope to create a space where we can be curious about how these dynamics impact you, our relationship, and what this means for your life.
