The greatest and most freeing gifts you can give yourself are self-exploration and compassion. Together, you and I can work collaboratively to further develop these qualities and foster your innate resilience. My goal is for you to feel safe, challenged, and empowered during our time together. The sheer fact that you are seeking support demonstrates an immense strength and courage. As a psychotherapist, I aim to create a non-judgmental, open-minded, and secure environment for clients to explore their feelings candidly and honestly. I utilize a variety of techniques and tailor treatment to the unique needs of the client.
I use an approach called Psychodynamic Therapy which focuses on gaining insight into past and present behaviors, as well as deepening overall self-awareness. Furthermore, I draw from these therapeutic modalities: EFT, IFS, and CBT. I specialize in sexuality and am committed to the promotion of dignity for the 2slgbtqia+ community. All identities welcomed.
My training and experience has primarily been with teens and adults experiencing a wide array of topics including sexual abuse, complicated grief, religious trauma, anxiety, family conflict, depression, loss, and identify exploration. I have and continue to undergo my own personal therapy. I am proud of you and I look forward to hearing from you.
