About My Clients

My ideal client is someone who is ready to dig into whatever obstacles are making it difficult to lead their best life. I have worked with complex trauma, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, grief and loss across all ages and genders. My true passion lies in sexuality and intimacy. My ideal client does not have a gender or race, but I realize I might not be the best fit for every individual and that is expected as I am a cisgender white woman.

My Background and Approach

I graduated from Widener University with a dual master's degree in social work and education in human sexuality. My approach is eclectic but I prefer to join the client and meet them where they are in an empathetic way. I am trained in trauma-focused CBT and internal family systems, but like to allow the client to take a narrative stance and tell their story from their perspective. I believe connecting the mind and body is important to create a whole and healthy self through mindfulness and somatic therapy. This means we take you as a whole and try to reconnect ourselves with parts of our body that might bring challenges through different techniques that can include movement, breathing, yoga, tapping, art, and music. I believe the most important piece in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. Without the relationship and trust, everything is just words from a book.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Every person, regardless of their background, deserves a chance at a better life, whatever that means for them. I have been active in the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as the Black Lives Matter movement. I've struggled with my own mental health for many years and have found a way to lead a happy and fulfilling life through therapy over time. My mantra is that you often are not responsible for your wound but you are responsible for your healing. I've found that exercise is the best way for me to cope and believe that leading a healthy lifestyle breaking a little sweat and creating foods that taste great and make you feel great has helped me to relieve anxiety. Together we can find what works for you. I know it can be intimidating to unpack all the areas of our lives that we've worked so hard to push down but am here to help show you that you deserve a good life. Message me if you have any questions.
