About My Clients

I specialize in guiding adults, teens and families through addressing the struggles that ADD can create and helping them focus on the gifts ADD can provide. I have also worked with adults, adolescents, and families to address anxiety, family dysfunction and other unhelpful patterns of thinking & behavior. If you're experiencing strife trying to manage anxiety, ADD, parenting, women's issues or difficult life transitions & events, such as divorce, college or retirement, please reach out.

My Background and Approach

My approach to counseling is compassionate, trauma informed, strengths based, solution focused and eclectic. My techniques will vary based on the client and their needs. I will draw from a few techniques/theories such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family, and Systems theory.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have marched, protested, boycotted, and donated. As a white, cis, female, I understand my privilege and always hope to use it for good. I also understand the affects of unconscious bias and I know I will be a lifelong learner when it comes to privilege and discrimination. I listen, I read, I learn, I listen again. I believe in and strive to practice cultural humility. I am a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ community/rights, women's rights and sex workers rights. I absolutely support the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight to create an anti-racist society. I believe and support the words or MLK when he said "Riot is the language of the unheard". The intersectionality of all of the above is not lost on me. I have a sex positive outlook and believe in the beauty and joy that consensual sex can bring to our lives. I am not a fan of the social constructs of sex and gender and have great appreciation for those who act to defy these unhealthy societal expectations.
