More About Me

If you are feeling the nudge to move forward and come in for a session, I encourage you to listen to yourself. You do not have to be alone in this and I’d love to get to know you better. I believe a combination of deep mental and emotional work along with practical application is key, and I can help you get where you want to be.

If you are a parent or guardian of a teen, please know that I will work with you both- recognizing and honoring who the client is, but keeping an open line of communication.

If you are an individual coming in yourself, please know that we can involve others in your sessions additionally, if needed and wanted.

 I use a variety of techniques, but most commonly I pull from- Humanistic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused, Culturally Sensitive, Emotionally Focused, Mindfulness-Based, Rational Emotive Behavior (REBT), Person-Centered, LGBTQIA+ Affirming, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

This means that I focus first and foremost on our therapeutic relationship and then also work in solution focused techniques and emotional work that uncovers those beliefs we have that make us act the way we do. I would consider myself an Integrative therapist, meaning that I understand that no one treatment is correct for everyone. Each person is unique and I am extremely intentional in considering that as we find what is best for you.

If you are looking for a non-judgmental, safe space that allows for growth then I hope to hear from you and look forward to these next steps together.
