About My Clients
Chances are if you have landed here, it’s because you are curious about therapy. Perhaps you’ve been a bit more worried, down, or stuck lately. You know that something is ‘off’ even if you don’t quite know how to describe it yet. Something is different about yourself and your relationships. Maybe you no longer have the energy to do the things you used to love. You may even be trying so hard to look like you have it together so these feelings remain hidden. You're exhausted, just pushing through.
My Background and Approach
Well I invite you to join me in creating meaningful change in your life. Together, we can explore the smallest steps you start taking right now to ease that stress. I will encourage you to show up as your real self. No need to have it all together here. We’ll find new ways of thinking and behaving that allow you to reconnect with yourself and the important people in your life. You and I will discuss the ways that emotions show up in your mind and body. We’ll practice how to acknowledge and express them in creative ways like mindfulness, movement, art, or writing. There is a way to feel more comfort and enjoyment, even amidst uncertainty. Difficult moments don't diminish our joy or our potential. Just like bright moments don't erase all our pain or struggle. Therapy can help you to find balance in all of life's moments.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Most of us have experienced something like this. Especially as we've endured the seasons since 2020. Being a student in the last couple of years has been a unique, to say the least. I recognize that our collective and individual experiences have been so incredibly complex, difficult, and maybe even in some ways transformative. As a therapist, I believe that we will always be first and foremost two (or more) humans in a room. I believe that my empathy, humor, authenticity, and desire to connect with folks may be far more important than any therapeutic tool I learned in school. So, I bring to my practice warmth and curiosity, along with emerging clinical expertise to support you through whatever you are experiencing. I love seeing folks grow into their confidence, self-love, creativity, and resilience.
