I work with people who present with all sorts of concerns, including issues related to gender and sexuality, race and racial identity, anxiety, depression, unhealthy eating, drug and alcohol use, life adjustment and transition, grief and loss, self-esteem, interpersonal conflict, and dating and intimate relationships. I also help people who are interested in self-discovery and seeking opportunities to learn more about themselves and others. While I feel equipped to meet the needs of most people who seek my help, I find that I’m most energized when I’m working with clients who are motivated and invested in the therapeutic process. I work best with people who arrive with an open mind and a trusting heart and who are committed to making lasting, meaningful changes in their lives
In therapy, my goal is to help you tap into the resources that already exist within you. I believe you possess wisdom, resilience, sound judgment, love and compassion for yourself and others, and a host of other strengths that can be refined or rediscovered through the process of therapy. I also believe that authentic human connection is the primary conduit of healing in therapy, so I strive to make our work relational – not just symptom-focused. I do this by lending a listening ear, offering empathic support, helping you consider things from multiple perspectives, giving feedback, sharing insight from my own lived experience, processing things that happen between us in the therapy room, and examining the ways our interactions might be similar to or different from others in your life outside of therapy. I also love to use humor, so we will probably do our fair share of laughing together.
In my downtime, I enjoy singing, dancing, reading memoirs, spending time outdoors, and making people laugh.
