About My Clients

I work with people navigating a variety of experiences. Some seek therapy to work on specific issues, such as OCD, anxiety, ADHD, or depression. Other clients utilize therapy to work on broad life stressors, such as career/relational difficulties, bicultural stressors, or difficult life transitions. Above all, my clients are looking for ways to make the changes they wish to see in their lives. I see my role in therapy as helping them find the strategies they seek.

My Background and Approach

I received my M.A. in Forensic and Counseling Psychology from William James College in 2015. I then completed my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at the University of Oregon in 2021. I am trained in a variety of treatment approaches and most frequently utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Interpersonal-Process Therapy. Integrated throughout my work is a social justice and multicultural lens, recognizing the complexity of human identity and its many impacts on mental health and social well-being. I strongly believe in integrating liberation-focused techniques to help clients feel that they can not only survive the difficulties of our current society, but thrive and promote change in it.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the relationship between the client and therapist is most crucial to effective therapy. In order to achieve a strong professional relationship, I focus on creating a safe, growth promoting environment in therapy. Within this emphasis, I recognize the importance of identity, culture, and client experiences as being crucial to understanding a client’s life, struggles, and strengths. Further, I believe that truly effective is driven by the goals of the client, not those of the therapist. As such, it is important to me that I take time to truly understand who you are, where you come from, and what your goals are.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
