About My Clients

Have you lost hope in being able to enjoy life? I understand feeling hopeless. I am here to help instill hope, to remind you of your strengths and potential. My clients are smart, creative, and compassionate. Despite that, many have trouble with feeling worthless – feeling like everything they do is wrong; feeling disconnected; feeling misunderstood and unheard, – often times due to growing up in invalidating environments where love feels conditional.

My Background and Approach

Our painful emotions, thoughts, and experiences tell us information, but they don’t have to define us. Together, we can build insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to give you the power to change. It is possible to change – the changes may be small at first and hard to see, but over time I hope you will have new tools, a new sense of freedom and empowerment, self-compassion, and a stronger connection to yourself. My therapeutic approach is warm, authentic, nonjudgmental, supportive, curious, and collaborative. I value the dignity and worth of all people, above all else. You are in charge. This is your space, your time. I am here to collaborate with you in a safe environment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that there can be no healing and growth without safety; that there can be no safety in the therapeutic relationship without a therapist acknowledging their own intersection of power, oppression, and privilege. I believe strongly in social justice issues, including the Black Lives Matter movement. I personally believe that all living beings deserve dignity, life, and respect. For that reason, I am an ethical vegan. I am also anti-diet culture - I believe that we are meant to eat and enjoy food to live full, healthy lives. I have been a volunteer crisis counselor at Crisis Text Line for almost 4 years.
