About My Clients

You may be facing past or present hurts, depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, life transitions, chronic pain, or trauma. I might be a particularly good fit if you are a helping professional or healer; identify as a highly sensitive person; are interested in ditching diet culture to make peace with your body; or enjoy engaging your whole self (body, mind, spirit/soul) in your change processes. People with busy minds and lives are especially welcome!

My Background and Approach

I help those who want to explore the "why" behind who we are, what we do, and how we got here, while also holding space for the "how" of growth, healing, and transformation. We can work together to honor your unique journey to the present, identify what you want to get out of your life now that you're here, and discover the tools to help you live a life resonant with your deepest self. I utilize a combination of modalities in my individual and group work, including those that incorporate the body and mindfulness, but am primarily a talk therapist based in psychodynamic and interpersonal neurobiology approaches. I use EMDR at times when appropriate to help folks with particularly stuck places in their individual work. If you're ready to feel seen and be met with curiosity and empathy, call or email me today to discuss how I can help you understand the past, get to know yourself on a deeper level, and move forward with access to more internal freedom and space.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a white social worker deeply committed to our profession's Code of Ethics, I am actively working to integrate anti-oppressive and, specifically, anti-racist practices into my personal and professional life. I hope to offer a therapeutic space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming of people of all backgrounds, abilities, and beliefs, and especially enjoy working with the LGBTQ+ community.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Judaism
  • Interfaith
  • Multifaith
