I find great joy in assisting my clients to live more vibrant, meaningful lives, by working through struggles with depression, OCD, anxiety, adult ADHD, grief, relationship problems, work or school problems, life transitions, inability to meet personal goals, and much more. I help people identify thoughts and behaviors that aren't working in their life, and explore more effective ones. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), my clients learn to feel and express emotions in new ways, and to communicate more effectively with friends, family, and others. I also utilize Narrative Therapy and DnD therapy.
My office is a safe, non-judgmental space for clients of all backgrounds to explore and define themselves and their values, and to practice new skills. I am LGBTQIAA+ positive, body positive, and knowledgeable and friendly toward alternative relationship types and lifestyles, such as kink and polyamory. I believe strongly in working from a place of compassion, authenticity, and collaboration, to ensure you feel empowered to heal & grow in a way that is right for you and your unique life. If you find yourself feeling stuck, overwhelmed, hopeless, or confused, reach out--we'll figure it out together.
