About My Clients

I am passionate about supporting those who identify as caretakers, perfectionists, codependents, and people-pleasers — those who have wisely learned to attune to the needs, emotional states, and approval of others, but in the process may have lost connection to their own boundaries, values, emotions, and self-worth. This external focus can lead to anxiety, shame, lack of direction, resentment, and exhaustion.

My Background and Approach

I offer a safe and accepting place for you to examine the needs and unresolved wounds underlying the behaviors you feel stuck in, honor those parts of yourself, and feel empowered to try more adaptive ways of relating. This may include setting boundaries, discovering your passions and value system, learning to self-soothe, and practicing self-compassion. My specialties include self-esteem, childhood trauma, and relationship issues. My therapeutic approach is informed by attachment theory, psychodynamic therapy, and parts work, but I may integrate skills from other therapy modalities to best support your needs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe the recurring beliefs, emotions, and behaviors that bring us into therapy often make perfect sense when we explore them in the context of our relational histories. By extending curiosity towards these parts of ourselves, we can understand their intended function and feel gratitude towards them as opposed to shame, fear, or frustration. With this understanding and appreciation we can accept ourselves as we are while also feeling empowered to choose more effective ways of getting our needs met.
