About My Clients

I work with introverted, timid, or highly sensitive women. If you hide behind perfectionism, are tired of pretending you have it all together and want to stop feeling less than or not good enough, you are in the right place. Many of my clients struggle with putting their needs before others and have difficulty asserting themselves. If this sounds like you, let's chat! I specialize in helping women with difficult childhoods or past abusive relationships heal through talk therapy, CBT and EMDR.

My Background and Approach

Going to therapy for the first time can be scary. Sometimes we are afraid of what might come up and whether we can to handle it. In our sessions, we go at your pace. Some sessions we may do talk therapy like CBT (change your thoughts, change you behaviors, change your life) and other times we may do EMDR (don't worry if you have never heard of it!). I like to approach your issues from a couple different directions to help give you perspective. I may suggest books, articles, podcasts, or Ted Talks that I think you would relate to. A lot of the approaches I use are ones that have helped me through my own therapy journey. Whether it's tools to say "no" without feeling guilty or ways to deal with overwhelm, there will be some laughs along the way. I use humor in my sessions and encourage you to do the same. I'll help you reframe those negative memories or work toward forgiveness for those who wronged you. Whatever it is that brings you in, just know your brokenness is welcome here!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I love, love, LOVE my job! And I think everyone should try therapy (and not just because it's what I do). I mean, who couldn't benefit from talking stuff out with a neutral, unbiased, compassionate person? I'm humbled by the strong, brave women who are my clients. I feel honored that someone trusts me enough and feels comfortable enough to tell me their deepest secrets. I take that privilege seriously and hold my clients in the highest regard. I believe that we should focus on lifting people up and supporting one another. As you therapist, I will be your biggest cheerleader but also you accountability partner. I will be a source of strength, reminding you of your awesomeness. I'm pretty sure this is where I get you to say "I am woman, hear me roar!" but I will settle for you admitting that you're pretty great. Often we grow up hearing about everything we did wrong rather than celebrating what we did right. Unless undone, we carry that view with us. It's time to undo those beliefs!
