About My Clients

Whether you're struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, past trauma, relationship issues, or navigating a challenging life circumstance, I'm here to help. If you're seeking therapy, chances are you're feeling alone, confused, or dissatisfied with your life at this moment. Maybe you're ready for deep healing from the past. Maybe you're looking for ways to cope with day-to-day stuff. Or maybe you just want to better understand yourself and your emotions. Wherever you're coming from, welcome!

My Background and Approach

I provide a warm, nonjudgmental and highly collaborative space for my clients to explore, learn, grow and heal. I expect you to do hard things in therapy, and you can expect me to be there every step of the way, supporting you wholeheartedly. In my work, I draw from various evidenced based therapeutic approaches (CBT, DBT, ACT, EMDR) and weave them together as a way to personalize your therapy experience. Human existence is inherently unique for each of us, and that means a uniquely tailored approach to therapy is important. Life isn’t linear, and neither is therapy. Aside from being a therapist, I’m also a flawed human being, as I expect you are too. I make mistakes, I have bad days, and I have my own biases that require regular checking. My willingness to share my humanness and truly accept the humanness in others is part of what sets me apart as a therapist. It allows me to build strong, trusting relationships with clients, an essential part of therapeutic process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people are inherently good and that we’re all doing the best we can. I also believe that we can always be doing better. When issues arise, it is typically a result of some context, circumstance, or life experience that a person encountered. Using this framework, I strive to help you better understand what's shaped your life thus far and to help you not only realize your own goodness, but harness it to make a better life for yourself. Your goodness is in there. Trust me! Let me help you find it. I welcome and celebrate all identities in my practice, and I enjoy working with folx who don't feel welcome in other spaces. I recognize my own privilege as well as the power dynamics that can show up in a therapeutic setting, and I strive to create a space that feels equanimous and collaborative.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
