My ideal client is someone who has experienced trauma, grief, or is going through a major life transition. I believe that therapy should be trauma informed and person centered. You're a good fit for me if you want help processing past events, navigating difficult relationships, or if your trauma is getting in the way of you living your life. If you need respect, empowerment, and connection from a therapist you're in the right place - I work for you, and I follow your lead - you're the expert in your life, after all. My clients typically want clarity, to heal, and to feel like they are living a life that they find meaning in.
I focus on narratives - internal, family, societal. The way we think about things, and the stories we tell and hold dear inform our understanding of the world. I incorporate social, evolutionary, and biological perspectives in my therapy. I have a deep understanding and passion for working with people who have lived through poverty, and all that can bring.
I know that it's hard to go to therapy, and that many therapists can seem cold, clinical, and distant. That's not me - I cut my teeth working with people experiencing homelessness. Regardless of what you do next - I'm proud of you for getting this far, and for even looking at therapists. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out.

I'm not a worksheet therapist, and I don't sit quietly for the session nodding my head and jotting down notes. I prefer to focus on connection with you, because as good as it is to know the treatment modalities, without understanding your life and your experiences and tailoring them they often don't work. I will build a treatment plan with you in session, and once you approve it we start the work.
