About My Clients

I provide individual counseling services for adolescents (age 14+) and adults experiencing self-esteem issues, anxiety, grief, and depression. I believe counseling can benefit any motivated individual, whether it is initiated for a specific problem or as a general quest for greater peace and awareness of self. Your unique way of engaging authentically with the world, others, and yourself is worth being discovered and celebrated.

My Background and Approach

I view the process of therapy as a collaboration between the client and clinician, but I believe you will be the ultimate agent of change in your life. In my approach, I will empathically engage with your past, present, and future so that you may become self-empowered to gently evaluate unhelpful patterns and identify new paths toward thriving. I care deeply about developing a therapeutic relationship centered around unconditional positive regard, empathy, trust, and safety. I believe a positive counselor-client fit is necessary for effective therapy. If you are interested in working together, I will be delighted to connect with you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I chose to become a therapist because I do not believe we are meant to face life's challenges alone. I am passionate about the destigmatization of mental health issues and an advocate for recognizing the inherent goodness and humanity of all people. I am grateful for the privilege to be in a career field which necessitates lifelong learning and openness. As an individual, I enjoy artistic mediums such as pottery and photography, as well as baking, reading, and running.
