About My Clients

You are wondering if something is wrong with you, or if you are having a normal reaction to what has happened in your life. Some bad things have happened and you experience life as unjust or not inclusive of a part of you. If you are worried that you can't stop worrying and just enjoy life, I'm here to help you find answers and feel relief.

My Background and Approach

Your story matters. I get to know you and your experiences. Because evaluations can be intimidating I don't immediately jump into bad things you've experienced unless you are ready to talk about them from the start. Instead we talk about what makes you feel good and bad and how you deal with it. I'm very thorough and having seen how a variety of other concerns can seriously impact mental health we'll talk about things such as your medical history, substance use, past relationships, and your education or work. After we discuss everything you'll take a couple of tests. When it is all done, I give you feedback thoughtful of you and the world you live in to help you find motivation and solutions to your problems. Therapy with me is collaborative - you are the expert on you, I am the expert on psychology. We'll work together to take the right approach for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Everyone could benefit from a supportive mental health professional at some point in their life, whether they have a diagnosis or not. Hiding myself from you isn't helpful for building trust, so if you have specific questions about me feel free to ask. (Please understand there are some things that I may not share if I think it would be unhelpful for you and I will be as open as I can about that.) I care deeply about human rights and justice. I work to model empathy, honesty, and equality in everything I do. I've lived abroad in an area where I was immersed in my (at the time developing) second language and stood out as different. I don't know what it feels like to be you, but I recognize that and know more than a little about the world. More importantly, I know that how you've experienced life matters deeply.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
