About My Clients

Have you experienced a loss or trauma that is too big for words? Maybe you believe what you are going through is too great a burden to share with others? Are you experiencing guilt or shame that is too much to bear? With a background in hospital social work, I have been in the trenches and walked along side people dealing with the impossible. I am here, with no judgments, to hold a calm and nurturing space for you. My specialty areas include chronic illness, grief/loss and trauma.

My Background and Approach

I believe in a collaborative approach to care, and am careful to understand your priorities for seeking help. Developing a relationship based on genuine connection, safety and confidentiality is a top priority for me, and I am ready to hold a safe space for whatever it is you need to bring to session. I approach therapy with a social justice lens, and believe in the power of humor and shared laughter to help us connect and cope. I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities including but not limited to psychodynamic, EMDR, attachment, and family systems. I practice mindful meditation and like to offer those techniques as tools for observing our emotions and bodies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In a calm and comforting environment, we will dig deep to identify your feelings, examine how the patterns in your life may or may not serve you, and reinforce coping strategies that work for you. With your history and what you carry with you informing us, we will rely on our interactions in the therapy session to help us access and begin to repair the pain you are feeling. We will use the safe space of our relationship to practice authentic self-expression with confidence and improve how you relate to the people in your life. I am especially committed to building a safe space for those who have experienced racial injustice, gender inequality and oppression. I have received additional training to work with the LGBTQ community as well. If you are interested in in working together, I encourage you to check out my website where you can send me an encrypted contact form or log into a secure client portal to request a consultation.
