Hello. I provide Individual Psychotherapy, as well as supportive Substance Abuse Counseling, with a Specialty in Adult Children of Alcoholism. My primary approaches to counseling are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and a 12-Step foundation framework. CBT is one common and evidenced-based form of talk-therapy aimed at resolving problems concerning unhealthy emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. When working with addictions, I will tailor the traditional 12-Step process to meet your individual needs. Additionally, my approach often requires homework for you to complete between sessions.

I specialize in working with folk who are queer, neurodivergent, and/or going through major life transitions. I recognize that beginning a journey toward greater self-discovery can be daunting. To be successful in this endeavor, it is crucial to feel understood and valued along the way. To this end, I approach the therapeutic relationship in a collaborative way and provide a person-centered, feminist therapeutic relationship characterized by radical validation and unconditional positive regard, focusing on your strengths, helping you to deepen agency and self-awareness, and emphasizing compassion and empathy throughout treatment.

I help my clients lead less burdensome, more joyful, and more emotionally connected lives. Together we can: find new tools to deal with challenging situations; uncover the reasons you are feeling down and rekindle excitement in your life; break patterns of fear and develop coping mechanisms to make success possible; work through feelings of low self-esteem and build confidence; move past the obstacles that prevent you from fostering deeper connections with others; identify the causes of obsessive thinking and help transcend the problem; and break free of destructive patterns and develop new skills to improve your life.

We all deserve a space that is exclusively ours. A non-judgmental, accepting, and healing space where we can transform our minds, feelings, and experiences. A space to reflect and grow. I provide holistic therapy that is person-centered, strength-based, and trauma-informed. My approach to therapy is eclectic - I incorporate various treatment modalities and approaches into my work (mindfulness, CBT, DBT, etc.) and provide anti-oppressive, anti-racist and culturally responsive therapy. The identities you carry are seen, valued, and celebrated. I consider all aspects of your life, including the systems and environments that impact us.

Is what you are holding onto worth the space it’s taking up? Everyone deserves to be heard, supported, and accepted unconditionally. It can often feel daunting to speak openly about our feelings, or allow ourselves the things we need. I am honored to aid you in discovering and living as your authentic self through providing compassion and empowerment in our sessions. Each individual has inherent worth, but storms can come that challenge our sense of self or perceived ability to manage hard times. I believe you already have many of the necessary skills to solve your problems, and together we can get you where you are looking to go!

It’s ok to not be ok. And when you’re not ok, it’s ok to reach out for help. Though life can often get us down, it is possible to rise above your circumstances, take control, and fight back. I believe that insight is a powerful tool in creating change within. As a therapist, I can help you better understand the connections between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. With this new insight, you can identify problematic ones and challenge, replace, or reframe them. The path to change starts with identifying your underlying needs and finding more effective ways to fulfill them.

Life can be hard. Being a college student can be hard. Life transitions (like starting college) often make it clear that some things just aren’t working. Maybe you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, alone, or depressed. Emotions, worries, or confusion become overwhelming and lead to unhelpful patterns. You've tried everything, but nothing has worked. You wonder if it will ever get better. All you want is peace, stability, and confidence in the direction your life is going. To feel good about yourself and your choices. To feel comfortable in your own skin and to believe in your ability to succeed.

Sometimes the hardest part of therapy is making the choice to begin. If you are here, you’re ready or at least thinking about starting this journey. Welcome! My ideal client is curious! You don’t need to have answers when you come to therapy. You may not even know what the exact issues are. That’s okay. We will work in collaboration to find the path forward that benefits you most. I encourage clients to share with me when things are and are not working for them. There’s no “one size fits all” therapy so we may “try on” a few different things to see what works for you!

My ideal client knows why they are in therapy. They can verbalize the need for change and are not afraid to ask for help. My ideal client comes into each session ready to do the work, yet prepared for how tough it may be. My ideal client is vulnerable, yet strong; and knowledgeable, yet willing to listen. I strive to encourage you to be your best self, by gently challenging you, helping you get unstuck, and creating room for us to pinpoint your growth areas. I am excited for you to be better.

I am honored for you to consider my practice to assist you in navigating this journey we call life. Are you experiencing a life changing event that you are struggling to navigate? At a crossroad, trying to decide where to go or what to do next? In a time of transition with your partner, or loved one? Struggling to get along or communicate? Do you need an objective impartial party to help guide you? There is no right or wrong answer, just what is best for your situation and those involved. I am affirming and supportive of the LGBTQ+ and Poly communities. My hope is to guide you to a place of "transformation and new beginnings".

Therapy is about finding someone who matches your style. Someone who will listen with an open ear and remains non-judgmental, all while pushing you outside of your comfort zone. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important piece of therapy. In life you will encounter a lot of experiences that can leave you with feelings of uncertainty, overwhelmed, and overall dissatisfaction. The decision to seek therapy is positive and courageous, and I’m glad you have made this choice. As a therapist, I believe in bridging the gap that can ultimately lead you on the path to being the best version of yourself.
