About My Clients
My clients are often individuals who are eager to grow, are motivated, and are invested in doing the challenging and necessary work that therapy requires. They are eager to improve their relationship with themselves and with others. My clients often struggle with issues including anxiety, depression, disordered eating, trauma, and various other concerns. I am passionate about working with women, LGBTQ+ adults, and also welcome individuals of all genders across their lifespan.
My Background and Approach
I have had significant experience in working with a wide range of personalities and individuals with different backgrounds and past experiences. I am passionate about taking a person-centered approach to best support the development and growth of my clients in various areas of their lives. I prefer to individualize the way I work with each client and collaboratively determine which therapeutic methods will work best to help them achieve their goals. I often incorporate techniques from CBT as well as psychodynamic theory to help my clients build healthy coping strategies and create new habits and behaviors, all while we work together to discover the origin and causes of their current challenges and maladaptive thoughts or behaviors. It is of the utmost importance to me that I provide a space for my clients where they feel safe to present their most authentic selves and explore all of their thoughts, emotions, and feelings without the fear of judgment or consequences.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that taking care of our mental health can be incredibly challenging. Likewise, beginning the journey to work on ourselves and live life more authentically can take enormous effort. For these reasons, I believe in taking small but meaningful steps throughout the therapeutic process to make gradual changes at a pace that feels comfortable for my clients. I am passionate about making sure that my clients can feel heard, validated, supported, and empowered in our sessions and never feel as though they must continue to struggle alone. I also feel strongly about the bidirectional relationship between our minds and bodies, and I believe in the importance of self-care and better understanding that relationship to improve our well-being. Therapy is an incredible investment toward taking care of ourselves, and I couldn't be happier that you're here!
