About My Clients

I specialize in supporting adults with anxiety (some of whom may self-identify as perfectionists) and LGBTQIA+ Millennials. You may feel eager to make changes in your life and not know where to start, want to explore complex layers of your identities, or seek ways to better navigate relationships. We'll work together to boost your strengths and shift perspectives so you can engage in life with a more grounded sense of self.

My Background and Approach

*View my website for information on my specialties* I'm a licensed mental health counselor with over 15 years of experience in multiple areas of mental health offering integrative therapy. I am trained in various theories and I calibrate my approach based on your needs at each session. I’m also a 200-hour certified yoga teacher who blends somatics and yogic philosophy (occasionally) within therapy. You are the expert on yourself and the answers you seek are within you. When you can soften judgments and tune into yourself, you access innate knowledge in those moments when talking doesn’t quite get there. This is what I think of as our “embodied insight.” Our work together will be collaborative and I will respect your needs and time. I will bring my authentic self to our work and trust that you are doing the same. If you're ready to learn about yourself, reach out - I'm here for you and eager to support you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Black Lives Matter. I am dedicated to becoming more of an antiracist individual in all facets of my life. I am a queer, white, cisgender woman. I am proactively learning and unlearning to expand my perspective, increase the efficacy of care, and be a better hum+n. I am a nonjudgmental, empathic, and open-minded professional. I believe in radical self-love and sex-positivity. I trust that you are the expert of your life, and you have the answers you're seeking; when we can truly listen to ourselves and reflect nonjudgmentally we find exactly what we need. It's an honor for me to hold space for you so that you can connect to your true Self. On a more personal/less serious note, I love my cats deeply and you might even catch one of them, Luca, in one of our sessions! I also love being active, whether it's lifting weights or going for a long walk, and thoroughly enjoy a good nonfiction book or memoir.
