About My Clients
Do you feel your emotions either very intensely or not at all? Like you’re somehow too much or not enough? Do you find yourself thinking “I could just kill myself" a little too often? When you have felt alone in this for a long time, it can feel impossible to imagine a different way of being. No wonder you're seeking relief, escape, or comfort. The healing work of therapy can reveal the possibilities of a life that feels worth living, and I look forward to joining you in this process.
My Background and Approach
I like to take a collaborative approach to therapy, so there is certainly room for creating a shared experience that works for both of us. What I can promise is that I will always show up as myself, as a real person invested in building trust, safety, and connection. What I suspect is that we will laugh, cry, and get angry. What I can offer is the knowledge that I will provide support and encouragement when it’s needed, I will offer perspectives that challenge existing ways of thinking and being, help you to build new awareness (or figure out what to do with the awareness you already have), and I will call you out when you need to be called out. I am also always open to ongoing feedback in order to help make your experience in therapy as meaningful as possible.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in the power of finding your voice, learning to trust your own inner ways of knowing, and strengthening connections within your community. I also recognize that we live in a world that can make this extraordinarily difficult because of the many oppressive systems that work to keep people stuck. Still, I believe that everyone can gain greater degrees of freedom in their lives and create space to show up in ways that feel good.
