About My Clients

Life is actually really hard at times and it can be difficult to know what's the next step to build a life that you're excited to wake up to living. I believe being truly seen, heard, and understood can be a profound experience that can lead to the ability to make lasting change. Sometimes we get stuck in patterns of what has been and what we're used to and it's challenging to find joy in life again. We face so many individual, social, and systemic challenges; it can be hard to keep going.

My Background and Approach

I have had the honor of helping individuals in several settings that have helped me understand how I enjoy helping best. In addition to helping individuals feel seen, heard, and understood, I work to provide and explore fresh perspectives to the issues that are at hand. From there we collaboratively create goals and figure out the steps to take together. In one of my favorite treatment modalities, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, we learn to tolerate and be effective in the midst of huge emotions. Reaching out for therapy can feel tough, terrifying, exciting, and so much more. Know that in our work together questions are welcomed, we will talk through each step and I meet you where you are.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Early on in my counseling education I was speaking with a clinician who quoted Maya Angelou, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better," and that has framed many of my values, personally and professionally. I believe we all have the capacity for growth and improvement. I identify as a therapist who sees a therapist, I have been in the client chair to work on myself, and will continue to do so to support my wellness and to better support your wellness. I do not discriminate against anyone. I do social justice work primarily through micro and meso levels, starting with hard conversations with individuals and working to create change in systems my clients face on a daily basis. I make it a priority to actively support minorities, LGBTQ+ communities, BIPOC communities, and to support people with the privilege I have. Support for me also involves continued education, as we evolve and grow as humans, it is imperative to keep learning.
