About

Finding a therapist you feel connected to and understood by is the key to a successful therapy experience. I pride myself on being an authentic, non-judgmental therapist, who is down-to-Earth & not afraid to use humor or a gentle nudge in my approach. Therapy is a partnership and my style is active, collaborative, and empowering. We will focus on finding solutions together by utilizing your strengths and fostering insight in a relaxed and safe environment. I especially love working with & empowering introverts and Highly Sensitive People!
I have extensive experience working with adults & emerging adults regarding a variety of issues, including relationship & dating difficulties, life transitions, family of origin issues, and work/life balance difficulties. Additionally, I have advanced training in perinatal mood disorders and enjoy supporting women throughout and after their pregnancies.
I am particularly passionate about working with clients experiencing infertility. I know firsthand how emotionally, physically, & financially draining infertility can be. Unfortunately, it isn’t often understood by those who haven’t been through it so your normal support systems may not feel like enough.
