During these times of uncertainty, we are all in need of support. Therapy is a great way to gain that support while discovering and working towards goals for a fulfilling life. I believe that therapy is a collaborative relationship between client and therapist, and that clients are the experts of their own lives. I have especially enjoyed working with folks in emerging and young adulthood who are seeking satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives. Many of those that I have worked with have faced challenges with life transitions, LGBTQ+ identity, systemic oppression, interpersonal relationships, and trauma.
