About My Clients

I specialize in supporting adults experiencing low self-esteem; depression; anxiety; folx who are eager to make changes in their life and don't know where to start, or those ready to explore complex layers of their identity. Maybe you've noticed a decrease in motivation or joy, or you're often feeling overwhelmed. I am confident that our work together will cultivate your strengths, and help you develop new ways of thinking and engaging in your life to foster a more grounded sense of self.

My Background and Approach

I believe that you are the expert of your life, and the answers you seek are within you. When we can truly listen to ourselves, quiet the noise, and reflect nonjudgmentally, we find exactly what we need. We are resilient beings who can grow significantly by integrating and understanding our inner experiences. Clients seeking therapy with me are stable and ready to dig into the work. With over 14 years of experience in multiple areas of mental health, I offer a well-rounded, integrative approach to therapy. I incorporate various theoretical approaches to best support clients session-to-session; through one lens using yoga, an example is noticing how we feel physically and emotionally as we discuss specific topics. The body offers us information that can assist in expanding our awareness, the first step to change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Black Lives Matter. I am dedicated to becoming more of an anti-racist 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 humxn. I am a nonjudgmental, empathic, and open-minded professional. I believe in radical self-love and sex-positivity. Now more than ever taking care of ourselves and being in community is imperative; I personally like to engage in movement most days of the week, whether it's going for a walk with a friend or doing an online workout or yoga. I believe therapy is for brave individuals ready to engage and commit to the work. It's not easy, and yet it will be fulfilling, nourishing, and will pave the way for stability, resilience, and success. If you're ready, I'm here for you - I look forward to speaking with you!
