About My Clients

My clients are young adults trying to figure out who they are, who they want to be, & how they want to show up in life. They may identify (even silently) as a people-pleaser, care-taker, or peace-maker. They are tired, stressed, and overwhelmed from trying to juggle too many people's expectations. They frequently doubt themselves even though they are smart and capable humans. They are ready to put up some boundaries and step into their own authentic selves, but also nervous about this as well.

My Background and Approach

I have a PhD in Counseling Psychology and 10+ years experience working with the young adult population including working in numerous college counseling centers. In sessions, we can talk about family dynamics, romantic relationships, sexual identity, major/career selection, money management, confidence, & overall emotional health. There isn't a topic you could bring up in counseling that would make me uncomfortable or surprise me, so please feel free to bring ALL of you to session! I have found that the best way I can serve clients is with an active and direct counseling style. We will talk about past experiences and how they have shaped you, but then we will focus on where you would like to go and develop a plan on how to get there. (This very well may be by processing through some of your past stuff!) I will support and encourage you, but I will also thoughtfully challenge you so you can ultimately reach the goals you set for yourself and be brave enough to shine!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy regardless of how big or small your concern is. Stepping into your authenticity is oftentimes hard and it can also be scary, especially if what you are opting for is "nontraditional". Taking the road less traveled is exciting and terrifying, freeing and isolating all at the same time. There is room for all of these emotions in therapy and you don't have to go through it alone. I believe in the power of getting support, perspective, and looking at oneself honestly, even though this can be vulnerable and challenging. I think there is a time and a place for both tears and laughter in therapy. Dark humor and sarcasm are welcome!
