About

My clients are bright teens, brilliant young adults, and some of the most loving parents and passionate professionals I know In fact, many of my clients are therapists nurses, or other "helpers" themselves. Some people start therapy seeking relief from anxiety or depression, recovery from an eating disorder, healing from a past hurt, or guidance for a specific issue in the present. In our work together, you will build new skills that foster authenticity, connection and resilience so that you can let go of perfectionism, avoidance, and any other armor that's keeping you stuck in harmful patterns.
I am certified in Brené Brown's Daring Way™ method and studied with her during my graduate studies. I am also trained in EMDR and Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy. Additionally, I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Honestly though, none of that really matters if there's not a strong therapeutic connection.
Healing, growing, and changing take fortitude and grit; and I hope to make every person who says ‘yes’ to that call for courage feel safe, supported, and seen.
