If you're worried about your teen, I am ready to help. Having spent years working with young adults and adolescents who are struggling, I am skilled in providing support in a caring, non-judgmental way. Together I work with clients to lay down the groundwork of self-compassion to build healthier thinking, behaviors, and relationships. Over time, my teen clients have more insight and skills to use in their daily lives. My experiences working in residential substance abuse and eating disorder facilities have helped me connect with teens and develop an arsenal of skills to assist even the most withdrawn adolescent.

Does your inner voice often sound critical? Do you struggle with high standards for yourself and fear judgment and rejection from others? Maybe you struggle with expressing your needs and feelings? That's where I can offer support. I work well with people who are highly sensitive, struggle with perfectionism, and are curious about exploring the parts of themselves that have been shamed and repressed. I help by facilitating empowerment, teaching skills to relearn emotional safety, and centering one's story. I strive to facilitate a process of healing that is client-led and welcomes all emotions.

Being a human is hard! Managing relationships (familial, romantic, platonic, professional) with all kinds of different personalities, feeling comfortable and confident in our careers, finding healthy and lasting love, and feeling good about ourselves through it all can feel like an impossible task. We were never given a manual on how to do this! And while, as humans, we are incredibly resilient and have somehow found a way to get this far, some of the coping mechanisms we have developed throughout our lives may not be serving us anymore. I help clients gain insight into their thoughts & behaviors to help improve their outcomes.

I believe everyone is capable of living their fullest, most vibrant life and it is my passion to help them achieve it. I help clients foster insight by processing their past experiences and gently uncovering the ways their pasts connect with their current struggles. I teach clients to discover the patterns and rules that keep them stuck and then support them in cultivating a life that brings them joy and fulfillment. I invite my clients on a journey of self-compassion and teach them how to prioritize gentleness and self-care. I believe therapy can be silly and even fun while still being impactful and effective.

We all have the potential to create the lives and relationships we want, even in the most challenging of situations. Grappling with the normal questions and challenges of being human can, at times become overwhelming. I work with clients to tap into the inner and outer resources that may have been unrecognized or perhaps forgotten, and to utilize these resources and skills to transform difficulty and pain into ease and wellbeing. You don't have to stay stuck in habitual patterns that don't serve you. Through thoughtful exploration and practice you can build a life of greater freedom and possibility.
