About My Clients

I work with individuals ages 14 and up as well as do couples and relational work. Some of my areas of specialty include: young-adult life transitions, anxiety/perfectionism, compassion fatigue, and attachment concerns/relational trauma. I enjoy working with clients to help them increase self-compassion, healthy self-care, and a more flexible perspective to navigate a complicated world.

My Background and Approach

I believe a strong therapeutic relationship is necessary for compassionate change. My approach is based in compassion and acceptance in order to hold a supportive space for you to explore your experience, values, and goals. We will have space to process your experiences as well as develop skills to honor and regulate emotions, improve relationships, and work towards your personal goals. I utilize techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Systems Approaches, and Mindfulness/Somatic-Based Approaches. I bring my background in Yoga to utilize the mind-body connection as a source of healing through meditation/mindfulness and regulating movement. In working together, you will have a space to do the exploring you need as well as gain a variety of tools for emotional and relational healing and growth.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I approach therapy in a normalizing and non-stigmatizing way. Navigating the complicated world we live in can be challenging for anyone. As humans, we are all susceptible to feelings of anxiety, depression, grief, and pain. And on top of that, our environment can often be demanding and filled with high expectations that leave us feeling as if we are not “good enough”. I practice therapy in a human-to-human context. I aim to create an open, supportive, and validating environment for you to explore emotions, relationships, values, and goals. My intention is for our work together to feel like a safe place for you to process through painful experiences and explore ways that you want to grow and personally develop. I am a LGBTQ-affirming, body-positive, sex-positive, and culturally-sensitive therapist. Acceptance and compassion are the two major tenants of my work.
