About My Clients

On the surface you're all calm and put together, but underneath you're panicking about how your life is panning out. Sure, you've got great ambition and have come really far. You don't just settle for less. Things may even be pretty good right now. But that anxiety about the past or future never quite goes away, its always lurking around every corner. You never feel good enough, no matter how much you achieve. Therapy can help put your anxiety into perspective, so that theres more room for life.

My Background and Approach

My background experience includes anxiety, depression, and trauma. I use talk therapy in addition to experiential models like Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) in which I have been trained in to help reduce distress and bring in a feeling of wholeness to my clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have an interest in wellness and spirituality, so if you are too, this can be a part of our conversations. I'm also a social worker by training and have participated in volunteer work so I take a social justice lens as well, and if you are passionate about social justice issues that can also be a part of our conversations.
