About My Clients

You made your own meals, applied to school solo, and left home as soon as you could. You raised yourself - some parts of your DIY life are missing. Your parents had too much "going on" to give guidance. You want to do more than hustle. When a problem arises, you can’t explain why but you become a doomsday prepper in your head thinking you will lose your job, partner, friends, &/or kids. You want to know things will be okay without having to work so hard. You want to feel enough.

My Background and Approach

What is my therapist street cred? I have an LCSW-C and am approved to supervise clinicians. I am considered 'seasoned' as I have been in the therapy field for a bit now. What matters most to my clients is that I’ve been extensively trained and deeply enjoy working with looking for help with trauma, communication skills, and resiliency. For those looking from EMDR I am a level I EMDR trained. For those that enjoy therapist talk these are approaches show up in my work - EMDR, DBT & CBT, Schema therapy, Relational Life Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Nonviolent Communication, the Gottman research, the work of Ester Perel and Brene Brown. I am constantly expanding my skill set as I love to learn so this is not an all inclusive list. I talk a lot about negative press in your head - we all have stories about ourselves and our world that call the shots for our decisions. Most of the time we don't question them. I work to free folx from the fiction that no longer serves them.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I support the BLM and BIPOC movements. I am an ally of the LGBTQIA community. I am the granddaughter of an immigrant. I respect folks for who they are. I actively work to address my privilege. If you need to vent about ‘those people’ I am not the therapist for you. I am a mother, wife, daughter, stepmother, sister, aunt, mother in law and Mimi. I come from a long line of outspoken women. I volunteer for giant breed dog rescues. I love sunlight, all things family, friends that make me laugh, podcasts, the outdoors, and good food. My clients have called me a truth bomber, a fangirl of the resilient & the therapist for people that don’t like therapy. As a passionate adult, I can say I know what it is like to be told one is "too much" – too sensitive, too moody, too opinionated, too driven, too busy, too loud, too mouthy, etc. And I know those given such labels are my people. Some people are just built to go at life hard. Helping the "too" navigate life is my passion.
