Areas that I work with include body positivity/ body image, sex positivity, LGBTQ +, self-harm, anxiety, and trauma.
What would it feel like to give yourself the space to sit and explore emotions, memories, and thoughts and to believe that you can handle them instead of avoiding or changing them? It is okay if your answer is “scary” or “gross”. While acknowledging that I cannot determine whether a space is safe or not, I strive to offer a space of non-judgement, validation, compassion and growth where you can get to know yourself more, build insight and acknowledgement of your strengths, and talk about whatever you need to for an hour.

I have a certification in working with the LGBTQ community.
When personal stresses mount, I believe in meeting the client where they are to listen with an empathic ear and provide coping skills to help clients more effectively navigate difficulties. I realize people need support to get by in their daily lives when career difficulties occur or relationships begin to break down or perhaps it is just hard to cope with personal or external expectations. I work with mind-body awareness and may introduce some relaxation techniques to aid clients overcome anxiety.

I have been able to help people who are struggling with an array of personal issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, LGBTQ , caregiver stress, and end of life issues.
I approach the therapeutic relationship from a client-centered lens with an integrative treatment approach. This means that I work with each client to develop a unique treatment plan to address their specific needs. I do not utilize a one size fits all approach and I believe that the client is just as important in this process as the therapist is. I examine all aspects of a client’s perspective including the systems that impact them. Treating the whole person is an important aspect for me in my therapeutic engagement with clients. I believe that every person has value and is worthy of kindness.

I believe psychotherapy can help with almost anything. Sometimes clients come in needing assistance with making a tough decision, while other times they’re needing tools to help better cope with anxiety or depression. I feel called to work with younger folks - adolescents and young adults particularly. Adolescence can be uncomfortable and confusing. It is a painful time for teenagers. I am deeply passionate about providing them with unconditional support, empathy, and a safe space to share their emotions. As for young adults, I am passionate about helping them find the direction in which their soul is calling them.

When you feel safe and supported, then and only then are you able to let your guard down and get in touch with your core issues and feelings. The most important measure of whether therapy will have a positive outcome is the connection between you and your therapist. For this reason, my goal is to create a warm and supportive environment in which you will be respectfully heard, cared about and not judged in any way. My overall approach is conversational, non-judgemental and solution focused with humor and laughter always welcome :)

I believe in the importance of meeting people where they are in the moment - not asking you to feel, look, or act like someone you are not. My therapeutic approach is centered around providing a caring space where you can safely share your thoughts free from judgement. I invite you to slow down and explore your values, emotions and life experiences to help gain a deeper understanding of yourself and relationships, including recognizing patterns that contribute to stress and anxiety. Together, we can begin the process of increasing self-awareness, practicing self-acceptance, and building practical skills to cope with life’s issues.
