About My Clients

Clients that typically seek me out are folks who struggle with closeness and how they experience others, and how they think others experience them. Together you and I will create an environment that will build on safety and trust. Here, we can tolerate feelings of displeasure, sadness, guilt, shame, happiness, and recovery. My work experience has led me to see unwanted behavior as potential (adult) attachment injuries. Healing this requires validation, affirmation, and realistic change.

My Background and Approach

I've been in the social work field since 2012 and have worked with various populations, ages, and cultural systems. My previous work was based on populations who've experienced homelessness, addiction, adults with autism, and in the schools. I attended the University of Chicago in 2016 and really grew into my clinical self as I became more dedicated to adult attachment, psychodynamic approaches, with a twist of philosophical questions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

How we are together must be authentic and meaningful. Like most professionals, I hold unconditional positive regard and believe that you know that answers but haven't felt safe or encouraged enough to dig for 'em. Unlike some, I do step into our relationship in blunt and non-veiled ways. At a deep level, I do not believe that any choice can be made for you, and if it were, it would not be authentically yours. I enjoy being both tender and strong, concise and dreamy, scientific and skeptical.
