For many of my clients, therapy is one of the few places they have been fully accepted. It is my goal to teach those struggling with self-worth to reparent themselves - to abandon their inner critic and expectations received from family, friends, or society. My work is guided by my belief that an authentic caring relationship and a space of nonjudgement are the most essential pieces of therapy.
Simply put, it’s most important to me that you feel seen and heard.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. I graduated in 2014 with a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and have since worked with populations that are struggling with either mental health disorders and/or addiction. I am a member of Riverstone Wellness Collaborative.
I have particular interest and experience working with the LGBT+ population, survivors of trauma, survivors of abuse, adult children of alcoholics/mentally ill/abusive parents, perfectionism, and those navigating life transitions. My practice is sex/kink positive and inclusive of open and poly relationships. I also work with those who wish to improve their relationship with their body (HAES and body positivity). I feel most effective treating adults (18+).
I have 8 years’ experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Attachment-Based Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Nurture Play Structure, and Motivational Interviewing.
Over our lifetime we gather messages about ourselves, other people, and the world. Sometimes the messages turn into beliefs or rules that hold us back from showing up authentically and can interfere with how we engage with people and the world around us. We all deserve a life free to be seen, loved, and to give love through deep and meaningful connections.
I hold the belief that every person is inherently good, lovable, capable, and resilient. My role is to support clients in discovering their true selves in a culturally sensitive, safe, and caring environment. Simply put, I encourage all of my clients to come as they are.
My commitment is to create a space in which we can reflect on the past and the present and practice new ways to connect authentically with others, quiet the inner critic, and live a life lead by their values.
