Who I am as a Therapist
I am passionate about working with clients struggling with symptoms of depression, anxiety anger, grief and life-transitions. Together we will explore unhelpful patterns so you can understand which parts of your identity feel right and which no longer serve you. I work closely with clients who are motivated to feel less distress, improve their relationships, and feel empowered in their daily lives. I specialize in working with teens as they navigate the challenges of adolescence and strive to build a strong sense of self-worth and self-confidence. I also work with families to improve communication and strengthen interpersonal dynamics, as well as with couples to address issues related to trust, intimacy and commitment.
As a therapist I am passionate about the exploration of how identity is formed within our relationships. Whether this be between family members, partners, co-workers or the therapist, our understanding of ourselves is shaped within the context of these relationships. It is my goal to help you learn how to show-up in the world as your authentic self and explore patterns of relating to others. I provide a safe, compassionate and creative atmosphere for us to discover ways for you to feel understood. My approach is warm, humorous and relatable.
I believe that this work is deeply collaborative and you are the expert on your own experiences in life. I am committed to providing a safe and inclusive space for all persons and to exploring my awareness of my own privilege as a white cis-woman. Within my work I have a deep understanding of how systemic issues impact a person’s mental health and sense of self, therefore I strive to be a safe therapeutic professional for folks in the LGBTQIA and BIPOC communities.
