About My Clients

You may feel as if your thoughts, emotions, memories, compulsions, predictions, and/or fears are ruling your life. This might look like avoiding things you care about because you feel scared or anxious, or feeling as if you don't have the energy or motivation to pursue the things that matter to you. I'm here to help change that by providing guidance, support, and knowledge to help you build the life you want for yourself, one step at a time.

My Background and Approach

I utilize ACT, CBT, and EPR to assist adults with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, other mood disorders, OCD, anger management, and ADHD. I take a similar approach in pre-marital and relationship counseling, with a special focus on communication and problem solving. My guiding principles are to help you be present, open up, and do what matters. How to get there generally involves a lot of education, trust, and practicing how to use tools and exercises inside of sessions and outside of sessions. I'll provide you with resources and information that you can take from our time together and apply to your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I care deeply about structural change and volunteer some of my time towards social justice causes. Sometimes that means taking leadership roles in a neighborhood mutual aid group, other times it means lobbying state politicians, and sometimes it means going to a protest. To me, access to healthcare, especially mental health care, is one of the most important problems of our time. That being said, I also believe Black Lives Matter, that climate change is potentially the most urgent issue of this century, and that people deserve to be treated as people.
