About

Authenticity. Honesty. Compassion. Those are just a few things I bring into session. I enjoy finding the balance between processing important topics with clients while also integrating psycho-education and action ("now what?") into the session. I value body awareness and invite my clients to attune to their bodies so they can learn not only how emotions impact them, but also how to help themselves when emotions become overwhelming. Counseling can be difficult, and for that reason I also bring in relaxation techniques into the session.
I work with clients that come in with a variety of concerns. I have experience working with grief, trauma, depression, and anxiety. Fear of the unknown is so real and valid. I offer a safe space for clients to explore and process all of life's trials and triumphs.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is extremely important. I understand how difficult it can be to open up to a complete stranger. We will spend time getting to know each other and going over my approach to counseling to make sure I am a good fit for you.
