About My Clients

I believe that you are the expert of yourself and therefore therapy should be a space made by your own design. My role is to help guide and support you in order to unveil the unconscious, innate wisdom and self-knowledge that you already possess.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic style is fluid, existential, and insight-driven. I heavily reference the arts, literary metaphor, and use humor when appropriate. I find these to be useful tools that can add color to old perspectives and create new mental associations. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, ensuring that we pay mind to your emotional, cognitive, and somatic experiences rather than just bits and pieces. I am attuned to the systemic tension that often forms between our inner world and our external social world and I strive to help you find a sense of harmony and balance between the two. I am a certified clinical trauma professional, as well as a substance use specialist. I have also completed certification trainings in DBT, CBT, MI, and ACT.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a person-centered, relational therapist, which means that I consider enriching relationships to be the driving force behind how we grow and make meaning of our lives. This includes not only the relationships we have with other people, but also the one that we have with ourselves. I am deeply humbled by the courage it takes to bare yourself so vulnerably to another person, especially when that person starts out as a stranger. In order to honor that, I seek to form a trusted therapeutic relationship with you full of compassion, transparency, and authenticity. I don't subscribe to the “old school” model of psychotherapy wherein your therapist acts as a blank-faced wall and nods as you divulge your deepest vulnerabilities. I'm a real person with real life experiences and therefore I like to keep it real.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
