About My Clients

My passion is working with adults who feel stuck in behaviors related to caretaking, people-pleasing, codependency, and perfectionism — 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, identity, and self-worth. Those who want support recognizing their inherent value for who they are, not what they accomplish or have to offer others.

My Background and Approach

My specialties include self-esteem, anxiety, relationship issues, and childhood trauma. I bring warmth, curiosity, and humor into my work with clients in order to create a space of safety, exploration, and empowerment. I support clients in reflecting on relationship patterns and the impact of past experiences, sitting with emotions, and identifying needs, values, and boundaries. I believe self-awareness is crucial to growth, but also recognize the importance of putting insights into action. Therefore, I also support clients in experimenting with more adaptive ways of being with themselves and others.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The parts of ourselves that we struggle with often make perfect sense when considered in the context of our relational experiences. By understanding how our behaviors have helped us adapt to our past relationships, we can offer these parts of ourselves compassion rather than feel shame, fear, or frustration. We can accept these parts while also working towards more flexible and effective responses.
