About My Clients

I am able to connect with a wide range of children, adolescents, and adults who are struggling with difficulties in their lives. I build trusting relationships with clients that are rooted in warmth, humor, and care. In my practice, I have a deep respect for my clients' diverse culture, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, and physical ability.

My Background and Approach

My clinical approach combines a variety of evidence-based techniques with some good old fashioned humility and common sense! I draw most heavily from practices that are considered experiential in nature, such as Internal Family Systems, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), and Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as Tapping). These techniques are proven to be highly effective in providing lasting relief from upsetting symptoms and achieving deeper understanding of why mental health issues arose in the first place. This helps us then make connections and observe patterns so that we feel better prepared to handle stressful life events without feeling we are in crisis each time.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that vulnerability is beautiful and brave and that as a society, we have reached our limit in tolerating behavior that is meant to shame and ostracize others. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am constantly thinking about how different systemic institutions impact my clients' mental health. Social workers are experts at recognizing people's resiliency and strength rather than just focusing on what is wrong with an individual. Working together, we focus on how the ills in society and culture can foster anxiety, shame, and trauma in a person. I am an avid supporter of Black Lives Matter and continue to challenge myself to become a stronger ally and push back against white supremacy. I am moved by the many survivors of sexual abuse and harassment that have bravely stepped up in the Me Too movement. I also participate in Moms Demand Action, which is a grassroots organization advocating for sensible gun laws.
