About My Clients

I work with people who are eager for change and willing to take necessary risks in therapy to increase self-awareness and sense of well-being. Many of us feel overwhelmed at times as we navigate world events, political disparities, intimate relationships, or just day-to-day life. Sometimes these issues disrupt our ability to achieve serenity or experience life’s pleasures. Together we can identify and work toward attainable goals that offer you the chance to increase personal satisfaction.

My Background and Approach

My training, education and experience started with my own personal journey many years ago to overcome issues that resulted in an unmanageable life. After I experienced the benefit of therapeutic bonds, tools, and recovery, I knew I had to share with others what was so freely given to me. For more than two decades I have been assisting others who need relief from emotional and psychic pain. I am interactive and direct in my approach, and utilize evidence-based practices and research in my work. I am aware of the privileges I have been afforded along the way as a cisgender white female, yet feel saddened that they exist. I have been fortunate to work with people from a variety of cultural and personal backgrounds, which has added immeasurable value to my perspectives as a mental health clinician. I am eternally grateful to all those who helped me during my healing journey, and hope I can be of assistance to you during yours.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe every living thing deserves reverence and has purpose, as long as it does no harm. I approach all life with compassion, respect, and a curious mind because the benefits of learning continue when we remain teachable. I am in awe of all life - humans, animals, plants and that which is yet unknown. I fully support policies that increase equity and I embrace diversity as a benefit to us all as a species. The world needs healing, our communities need healing, and we need healing. I believe each one of us has the power to improve our own lives and the lives of those around us if we are willing to work at it. Therapy is a unique growth opportunity that allows you to focus specifically on your goals, needs, and areas of growth.
