I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.

It’s hard to imagine a more accurate stereotype than the image of an unhappy adult reclined on a chaise lounge while venting about an unhappy childhood. Though the stereotype might be overly simplified, the reality is your childhood and adolescent years go on to color the rest of your life, shaping your personality, relationships, goals, and opinions. The importance of these years is what drew me to the field. From my very first placement as a graduate school intern, I was especially drawn towards the prospect of helping children and young adults navigate their way through a time that can feel like a rollercoaster.
