About My Clients

Clients I serve are youth and families who have suffered trauma, those who struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem and identity development, and youth who are LGBTQ+ identified or finding who they are and who they want to be.

My Background and Approach

As a therapist, I love learning and hearing about other people’s stories, so I thought I’d tell you a little about mine. During my undergraduate studies, I traveled and lived in Italy for several months. There, I studied more about human rights. Another interesting tidbit about me is that I also studied opera. That experience helped guide me to know that I wanted to help families through their times of struggles. It was there that I was able to see first hand how important it is for us to connect to our inner strengths and realize and build on our resiliencies. After finishing my undergraduate degree and graduate degree, I knew I was deeply passionate about helping youth and families. I value the trust that people extend when they talk about the most confusing, painful, and difficult things they experience. It’s important for all of us to figure out who we are, find the people who can understand us the most, and determine where we fit in this world.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I provide a safe and welcoming space where you can be yourself while exploring your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and decisions and getting the support you need to help you determine what is best for you. It's a place just for you. If you happen to be open to the idea of someone else helping you try to work through some of the feelings, decisions, thoughts, beliefs, and fears that are difficult for you to manage, I’m here to help.
