My clients inspire me. Some of them have experienced loss or the death of someone they love, some have experienced trauma, some feel like on the outside they have it all together but on the inside are feeling overwhelmed. My clients also value therapy and want to continue to grow, learn about themselves, their relationships and feel confident in who they are and what they want out of life.
My Background and Approach
I use a relational approach to therapy. This means that I relate to you on a person-to-person level and truly believe that you are the expert on your life. I am here to hold up a mirror while simultaneously hypothetically putting my arm around you. Many of our sessions together will be unstructured and more of an open conversation rather than a teaching lesson.
Since 2011 when I began my doctoral program in clinical psychology, I have received training with children, young adults, couples, individuals and a variety of psychological issues. When we meet in person, I’m happy to talk more with you about my credentials and training experiences. I have specific training with veterans, trauma and grief.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I love dogs, true crime podcasts, yoga, traveling and watching football. I do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or xenophobia. I feel strongly about making mental health just as important as physical health and that gratitude is the most powerful tool.
