About My Clients

One of the things that I think best prepares me to be a therapist is that I have been TO therapy - so I get how you might be feeling! I have experienced anxiety and depression, and I want to help you find a way through it. I work with clients of all ages; Working with couples and families is something that I find to be a pleasure, but I'm also quite experienced working with individuals. I have found that assuming the client is the expert on their own life is one of the best ways to help others.

My Background and Approach

My goal is to look at the things that connect you with others, as well as the things you are already successful in, and build upon them - we're not starting over completely, we're building on what already works! I utilize a family systems approach, looking at all of the factors which might be impacting you or your relationships and the ways that you may be able to make adjustments to experience more success in those relationships. Additionally, these tools that help you be successful in relationships actually help you to become more successful individually - it all builds on itself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all have the capacity to learn and grow - that even when we make mistakes, they can be learning opportunities if we allow them to be. I have experienced mental health issues of my own, and along the way I have learned positive coping skills that I can share with my own clients, but I also know that even I slip at times! I still engage in my own therapy regularly - I think that in order to be able to help others I need to continually be helping myself. I absolutely love watching hockey, and have been fortunate enough to be a Tampa Bay Lightning fan over the past few years. I'm also a huge rollercoaster fan, Disney/Star Wars nerd, and love to bring pop culture into therapy when possible/appropriate. Sometimes you just need a space to rant for a few minutes about a book or movie to get a break from the heavy stuff! I also make a point to engage in supporting charities for LGBTQ+ rights, advocate politically for low cost housing and health care and other causes.
