I am a clinical social worker with 10 years of experience and have worked in both residential and outpatient settings. I currently offer individual therapy to clients experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, substance use, and grief. I work with many LGBTQIA+ clients and believe that issues of social justice are often relevant to therapy. I come from a Health at Every Size perspective, am sex-positive, and am committed to ongoing anti-racist work. I have sought additional training around sexuality and gender and am enthusiastic about supporting folks who are feeling curious about exploring these facets of their experience.
I draw on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP) and Mindfulness to help clients find new ways of coping with problems. I love bringing the creative process into therapy and helping clients develop sources of meaning and connection.
I know it can feel intimidating to consider examining the parts of your life that hurt, and I also deeply believe that it can be life-changing. It is my intention to create a safe and welcoming space in which we can examine the information and lived-experience you bring to therapy with compassion, curiosity, and warmth.
