About My Clients

You've been to therapy before (or thought about it), but you're struggling again. Looking back, you realize that you weren't ready to do the deep healing work before. This time it's different, this time you're ready. It's not always easy, but it's always worth it. My clients tend to be insightful, verbal, and ready to dig in. Even if you're a little unsure about all of this, I know that things can - and will - get better, and I am so looking forward to working with you.

My Background and Approach

I am trained in person-centered and emotionally-focused therapy. My style is warm, non-judgmental, laid-back, and highly attentive to issues of social justice. The foundation of my work is the development of strong therapeutic relationships with my clients and creating a sense of safety. This approach supports clients in being able to better understand themselves in the context of their past while facilitating healing for their future. I value authenticity, laughter, and honesty. My clients and I laugh in sessions. A lot. We keep it real. We swear. We create a space that's laid-back and welcoming no matter where you're at. Grab a cozy drink, get comfy, and let's do it. You are worth the work. You got this, I got you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I deeply believe that you, as a perfectly imperfect human, are worthy of love, respect, and happiness. I believe that you are, and always have been, enough. I am particularly passionate about supporting members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I work hard to be anti-racist in my practice and aware of how biases of all kinds impact the therapeutic space.
