About My Clients
I support teens, adults, and families with a specialized focus on students, athletes, young professionals, parents, teachers, and coaches. Many of my clients are overwhelmed and struggling to find inner peace and confidence amidst the various pressures they face. In particular, I help them with overcoming anxiety, stress/burnout, ADHD, depression, relationship challenges, school or sports related issues, life transitions, and grief. I also offer a grief support group for high school teens.
My Background and Approach
As a former high school social worker and women's basketball coach, I have nine years of experience providing individual, group, and family therapy for a diverse demographic of people with a variety of mental health challenges, disabilities, and socioeconomic needs. I offer a mixture of empathetic and reflective listening, thoughtful feedback, accountability, and new perspectives and science-backed tools for effectively managing your stressors. It will be a collaborative, holistic, and educational journey tailored to your unique values and goals. Some of the things we might work on together include self-care, coping strategies, mindfulness, boundary setting, self-awareness, committed action towards your goals, and much more. Ultimately, my hope is that you'll develop a stronger understanding of yourself, your emotions, and how to achieve a healthier and more fulfilled life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that seeking out therapy requires an immense amount of courage and self-awareness, which I greatly respect in my clients. I also believe that each client is the expert of their own life, and my role is to be a supportive guide who will help you reach your full potential. The values that motivate me as a therapist in large part stem from my experiences as a social worker, coach, and athlete. These experiences have demonstrated to me the power of self-compassion, vulnerability, self-discipline, and strong support systems. They have shown me that there is beauty in our flaws and that any challenge or crisis can lead to positive transformation and change. “Obstacles don’t block the path; they are the path.” - Zen proverb
