Announcement icon I am currently accepting new clients using a secure Teletherapy service in order to best support the health of our community at this time.
I am a Licensed Graduate Social Worker serving adolescents, adults, and couples, experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss, effects of past trauma, issues related to gender and/or sexuality, life transitions, and challenges within interpersonal relationships. I utilize a variety of modalities to inform my approach, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy based skills, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness-based techniques. I believe in using an integrative approach that honors mind-body wellness to promote resiliency and change.
I approach therapy by establishing a strong foundation of collaboration, safety, and acceptance. This involves meeting you where you are, understanding what brings you to therapy, identifying current barriers to healing, and equipping you with tools to be more in control of your emotions in order to experience change.
My framework is informed by exploring relational histories, family of origin, and the life experiences that shape your unique narrative. I am committed to working with clients who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community. As a white, queer-identified, cisgender female, I believe strongly in honoring all identities and how they intersect with daily life.
