Being a therapist allows me to be my most genuine self and to encourage others to feel comfortable doing the same. Therapy grants the opportunity to work with people in a way that fosters authentic connection. In being a therapist, I find great responsibility in meeting clients wherever they are in their lives. It requires intentional consideration of history, environments, strengths, and any other factors that contribute to a person’s state of being. I am determined to walk alongside my clients in reaching their therapy goals and to provide empathy and curiosity along the way.
I work with people of various ages and backgrounds. The populations I work with most include teens, young adults, and adults. I have clinical experience working with life transitions, adjustment periods, disordered eating, anxiety, depression, grief, and family issues. I offer an affirming space for people of all identities to work toward their therapy goals. I use tenants of several modalities in my work; my approach pulls from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, and Family Systems Theory.
I find the therapeutic relationship to be an important foundation for meaningful growth. For this to be the case, I provide a space that encourages mutual trust that remains free of judgment. In working with me, you can expect to find someone who will be in your corner throughout your therapeutic journey. I am truly interested in who you are, your life experiences, and your values. I believe all of these factors are extremely important in uncovering strengths and struggles alike. In our work together, I am committed to using evidence-based approaches in combination with a strong therapeutic foundation to work toward your therapy goals.
