About

The foundation of my therapeutic practice includes meeting clients with empathy, warmth, and authenticity. I strive to help clients gain insight around the ways that the past impacts the present, develop tools to navigate life mindfully, and build towards their vision of a life worth living. I focus on developing a collaborative relationship with clients in which they feel validated, respected, and honored in their own unique journey in life. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to begin the process of personal exploration and growth.
My practice primarily centers on helping clients struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionism, trauma, borderline personality disorder, and addiction. I combine humanistic and psychodynamic approaches with evidence-based practices, including CBT and DBT.
I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist working under the supervision of Rachel Jones, LMFT. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in speaking further. I look forward to connecting with you!
