About

One of the core reasons people come to counseling is that they feel a lack of connection. Sometimes that connection is to others in their life; loved ones, partners, friends, or co-workers. Just as often that lack of connection is to themselves; fear, trauma, sexuality or shame. Fostering those connections with transparency, brevity and compassion is something I love to do. Helping people find understanding and to build coping skills that aren’t just instant gratification which drown out the real issues we’ve got (can feel good though). Skills and insight that’s more meaningful and effective than avoidance, or memes on Instagram.
Here are the specs (though I believe an intro session will give us a real sense of fit): I am a client centered therapist who utilizes a sex positive approach pulling from many tools from evidence based approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (based in Attachment theory), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness.
I have utilized Telehealth for over 5 years and believe in it's efficacy and I also appreciate the flexibility/accessibility it provides. I am grateful that I have been able to witness change and resiliency during times where people thought it was impossible. Therapy is a collaborative effort in accomplishing your goals and I am here to support you.
