About My Clients
Most of my clients — individuals as well as members of couples — often identify as high achievers, deep feelers, or people-pleasers; though regardless of the persona/strategy that has supported them to this point in their life, it's no longer working, leaving them feeling confused, lonely, stuck, or spinning about what to do next.
My Background and Approach
I bring a blend of empathy, curiosity, humor, and knowledge to the therapeutic process. I provide a safe space where clients get to explore — and begin to shed — the beliefs, behaviors, and stories imposed by family and society that no longer work… allowing my clients to be the truest and most resilient version of themselves. I have worked in the field of mental health since 2008 in a wide range of settings and with an equally wide range of clients. In 2021 I transitioned from working in a non-profit community clinic to my private practice, and that is when my niche of clients began to find me. I know the vulnerability and courage that it takes to ask for support. I also know what becomes possible when we give ourselves the opportunity to be seen, heard, and understood: a stronger sense of self, better relationships, and a more fulfilling life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I’ve always been interested in psychology, beginning as early as middle school when I was a Peer Counselor. A period of depression in my late teens and early 20s only furthered my interest in what contributes to people leading fulfilling lives. Since then, I have been devoted to learning about relationships, psychology, philosophy, and self-development. One of the things that I love about this field is that it is constantly evolving and growing, just like we are. Areas of ongoing learning include: Anti-racist unlearning/re-learning, LGBTQ+ communities, Neurodivergence, Polyvagal Theory, Enneagram, Human Design, and Clinical Supervision. I choose to work outside of the umbrella of insurance providers; limiting their involvement allows the therapeutic process to have more privacy and autonomy. While I am not on insurance panels, you may be able to get reimbursement for our work together if your insurance covers therapy with an “out of network provider”.
