About My Clients

If you're here, you're probably feeling some discomfort. Maybe it's shame or feelings of guilt. Perhaps it's anxiety, worry, or lack of motivation. Or maybe it's conflict with other people in your life. No matter what you're experiencing, it's known (through studies, anecdotally, personal experience, etc.) that speaking our discomfort greatly reduces it. So why not give it a try?

My Background and Approach

Therapy can be a great place to vent and feel heard. It can also be a space for personal growth and skill development. Whether you're looking for one or both of these forms of support, my top priority as a therapist is to craft a space that fits for you, your style, and what you're seeking. My approach centers around validation, psychoeducation (understanding how our brains work), and increasing everyday coping skills. I also work to help my clients bring together the emotional and logical parts of our minds (which can feel very separate!) to help manage internal conflict as well as our reactions to conflict outside of us.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe therapy is a place to get perspective -- we may change or add to our own perspective, or we can even work to feel more solid in the perspective you already have. That can sound so simple, but the framework with which we view our lives has a profound impact on the way we see ourselves and the ways we move forward. Therapy is a place to process the past, work to be more present here and now, and to build skills and plan for the future. You get to choose the focus that serves you, and your therapist should be there to support the direction you choose. I believe strongly that therapy should be driven by you as the client: How often? For how long? What are we focusing on? This time in session is for you, and it works best if it's focused on what you want, what you care about, and what you desire for yourself.
