My goal as a therapist is to create an environment, and to foster a relationship in which my clients feel seen, heard, and safe to express their full range of emotions. Life is complicated, and much of the time people are burdened with meeting others’ expectations; in my practice I hope people feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable, and entirely themselves. Once our relationship is fostered through trust, honesty, and safety, a client and I will unpack and process negative self-beliefs, explore the importance of past and present relationships, and implement strategies to promote long term wellness.
I attended Thomas Jefferson's Community and Trauma Counseling graduate program and have extensively studied the causes and effects of trauma. I work through a trauma focused lens, and I am trained in EMDR Therapy. I focus on the formation of identity and relationship patterns, while also exploring the physiological experiences of people's emotions.
Please feel to reach out via phone or email to see if we'd be a good fit! I will also be overseeing a counseling student who is available to meet with clients at significantly reduced rates. Reach out for more information!
