About My Clients

I am passionate about working with individuals who feel that no matter what they do they just can't get it right. I am confident in my ability to support people who are struggling with their self-worth, those who have a history of trauma, and those who feel stuck. I am also uniquely qualified to support professionals who have experienced significant career challenges like compassion fatigue, burn out, licensure issues, malpractice suits, and/or disciplinary actions.

My Background and Approach

I am a firm believer that the stronger the therapeutic relationship, the better the client outcomes will be. An alliance with me will be reliable, warm, and genuine. I am trained in a variety of evidenced based models and draw on them for the treatment of trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and parenting challenges BUT the clients I work with find comfort in having a clinician who can put the person before the treatment manual and adjust as needed. The goal with this type of approach is to foster a relational experience that is supportive, caring, and respectful so that you can develop the same type of relationship with yourself and become your own best resource. I have an Ed.S. in counselor education and supervision and am a certified Compassion Fatigue Educator and Therapist. I teach college classes in the field of human services and can be especially helpful to professionals in highly regulated fields including social services, medicine & law.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We all deserve safety, freedom, and a voice. We all deserve to be ourselves without fear of retribution or judgement. We all need to acknowledge when this isn’t happening and work together so that it does. I support the efforts of the Human Rights Campaign as well as Physicians for Human Rights. Through these networks I offer my professional services to those who may not otherwise have access to them so I can be a part of the solution.
