About My Clients

Are you struggling with anxiety that never seems to go away? Constantly calling yourself a screw-up, or struggling with rejection from the people you care about? Do you struggle with making life transitions? Have you experienced times when you've felt like you were going to die, or like you wish maybe you would have? These experiences are a normal response to very harsh situations. Evidence informed therapies exist to help you move to a place of wellness and towards the person you hope to be.

My Background and Approach

Together we will use the strengths that you bring to the therapy room to help move you towards your goals. You've probably tried quite a few things out in the past to help yourself, and some of those may have been effective. We're going to look at what has helped you survive up to this point and capitalize on that to help you thrive. We will look at what in your life can change and try out ways of making those changes. When things come up that are outside of your control, we'll exercise skills to help bring serenity and peace with the fact that those things are out of your control. From these skills and your natural strengths, we'll hone a wisdom for life that will ultimately make my role in therapy obsolete. That for me is the biggest victory. Some of the tools that I will bring to the table are from evidence based practices including Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and EMDR. I am happy to discuss these at greater length in consultation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people hold a deep and profound worth, but that they often do not recognize it in themselves. More often than not, people who don't recognize it are from groups that are marginalized. Whether you are a member of the LGBTQ community, a racial minority, or a religious minority, I am extremely honored to help you find your worth. I am particularly passionate about providing care and support for those with neurological differences such as Autism, ADD/ADHD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and other conditions like Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia. I'm also a nerd. I love science, fandom, and Dungeons and Dragons. If you're a nerd or geek, I see that as a strength. Bring what you love into therapy, and we'll use it as a tool for growth.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Wicca/Paganism
  • Interfaith
  • Multifaith
