I am an avid believer in the innate goodness of all people (even though watching the news can test even my limits). I have had the honor to witness clients take ownership of their lives and leave me in awe of their strength and courage. I also attend therapy and have for years, due to my own history of having to unlearn unhealthy coping skills and to build my self-confidence and self-love. Both through my own therapy and in my role as a therapist, I know for certain that change is possible.
In individual therapy, we tend to focus on individual and interpersonal change, but I also am a strong advocate for community care and social justice. I continue to educate myself on oppressive systems and do my own work to address my own internalized biases. I support businesses and organizations that promote equity, lift up under-represented voices, and support marginalized communities.
Finally, I love dogs, dancing, music, the Great British Baking Show, and am currently learning to crochet.
