About My Clients

I work with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, communication, and boundaries. I am a sex-positive therapist and very familiar with the ethical non-monogamy. Your therapist should be someone you are comfortable discussing all the things that are uncomfortable to discuss. I try to create an atmosphere where anything can be brought to the table. I find that problems are hardly every "one simple issue" and deserve a unique approach every time.

My Background and Approach

I have worked in crisis, hospital, and outpatient environments that have given me a diverse background in a wide range of human experiences. It is my intention to meet clients where they're at, help them figure out where they want to go, and decide how they want to get there. I focus on humanistic approaches that are geared towards giving clients ownership of their story. Sometime life can be overwhelming and we get lost in our own experience. I take influence from narrative therapy approaches to help clients gain power and rewrite their experience. Often, I am working with clients on expressing their wants, needs, and boundaries. As humans, we are looking for meaning in all experiences in life, and we assign that meaning. That assigned meaning doesn't always turn out to be completely accurate and changes how we engage with ourselves and the world around us. I work with clients to sort through assigned meaning and make sure it fits with their desires for their life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is my belief that the client is the expert in their life. In my work with clients I find we often have stuffed emotions and experiences into a backpack they carry around. Those items can be extremely heavy or begin "leaking" into everyday life. I am a guide to taking out the pieces and processing them in a safe environment. I strive to create a warm, nonjudgemental environment, where my clients can find peace and clarity. I look for and focus on attachment issues in relationships. Often people request help with their communication issues, and yes, good communication practices will absolutely help a situation; however, you need to know what you are really trying to say and that is at the heart of the communication issue. Understanding how we relate to people and how to identify and communicate our needs in a relationship is part of having a great relationship. I assist couples in communication, trust, respect, and intimacy which is all founded in attachment.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
