I work with clients navigating anxiety, depression, work/life balance, life transitions, boundaries, stress, trauma, religious or spiritual trauma, identity development, and more. I believe clients are the experts of their own experiences and that a positive, collaborative therapeutic alliance is deeply important. My approach to therapy is grounded in those beliefs, and I work diligently to create a space where clients feel brave, heard, and empowered. I believe therapy should be holistic, pulling from systems theory, dialectical behavior therapy, narrative therapy, strengths-based, and person-centered approaches. I operate from a harm reduction framework and utilize motivational interviewing. I'm generally laid-back, welcoming, direct, and use the occasional swear word, but only if that works for you. I hold a Master of Social Work, and I’m currently a licensed master social worker (LMSW) under the supervision of Mick Rehrig, LCSW and direction of Carrie Gensler, LPC.
