I welcome and work with adults from all backgrounds and stages of life. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, engaged in anti-racist work, and approach my clients with empathy, nonjudgement, and respect for their strengths. As a former professor who left academia, I value supporting clients through big decisions, school or career stress, and life transitions. I view mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, burnout, and trauma as responses to individual, social, and environmental factors, rather than 'personal' issues. Consequently, I help clients make changes in their own habits, their relationships, and their wider contexts.
My therapy sessions focus on self-exploration and acceptance, identifying what matters most to you, and supporting you in living by your own values. To treat different psychological issues, I use a variety of evidence-based models including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), DBT, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, and grief counseling.
I am a fully licensed LCSW. Please be aware that I only rarely work with clients younger than 25, and I do not see clients after 5pm. I currently have a 3-5 week waitlist for new clients. I look forward to hearing from you!
