About My Clients

I tend to connect best with millennials, Gen Xers, and those a little bit "on the fringe": I especially enjoy working with LBTQ+ and polyamorous folks (and I make my best effort to educate myself about these communities and populations). I help people understand their emotions and develop self-compassion. I help people resolve conflict and create a deeper, more meaningful connections. I help trauma survivors process and move past their trauma and overcome the symptoms that are holding them back.

My Background and Approach

After earning a double major in Psychology and Studio Art, I went on to get my master's in marriage and family therapy at PSU. For the first 5 years of my career, I worked with highly traumatized children and their families in community, hospital, home, and school settings. I opened my own practice 3 years ago and shifted to working more with individuals and couples. I have an attachment-oriented style, which means I will ask you about your past, relationships, and family, but we'll focus the most on the here and now. I will help you examine how your thoughts and feelings are helping or hindering you in your goals, as well as how to change your habits to improve your life. I have intensive training in EMDR, a body-oriented modality to help people overcome trauma and related symptoms in a relatively short time, Gottman Relationship Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, which are both research-based and highly effective for treating relationship problems.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in lifting up the more vulnerable members of our society, and to do that I work with minorities and majorities alike, because we need changes on both sides. I'm a feminist who recognizes how a patriarchal society hurts all genders and inhibits us from being who we truly are. Though not a POC, I am passionate about eradicating racism which means examining and owning my own white privilege being an ally to those who don't have it. If you haven't guessed by now, I'm fairly left-leaning and progressive, but I respect those who have differing perspectives. I am sex positive and kink-friendly and I think we should all be talking about sex a little more. I believe in health at every size and that what we eat, what we do, and how we talk to ourselves all affect how we feel. I take a holistic approach and look at each individual as a whole, complex person.
