Seeking therapy requires vulnerability and courage as well as a deep desire to be authentically seen and heard. I provide a comfortable, confidential, non-judgmental, and safe environment to explore your feelings, ideas, and experiences. I use a client-centered approach and focus on interpersonal processes and relationships, attachment, and cultural and environmental contexts to understand you in an authentic way. My hope is to meet you where you are on your journey of self-exploration while helping you discover opportunities for change. I use a collaborative approach and work to tailor treatment to your individual goals and needs, while considering how cultural identities and systemic factors can inform our work together.   

   

I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings. I’ve worked in elementary and middle schools, provided individual counseling at a university counseling center, provided group counseling at an agency focused on children and adolescents on the Autism Spectrum, provided individual and group therapy in a short-term inpatient unit providing residential crisis stabilization for acute mental health issues, and individual therapy at an outpatient mental health agency.     

   

I provide individual counseling to adults for a variety of mental health concerns, with a special emphasis on mood disorders, anxiety, adjustment disorder, interpersonal concerns, and trauma. I also provide individual counseling services for teens (13+) for mood disorders, anxiety, and interpersonal concerns by utilizing age-appropriate strategies and interventions. I utilize interpersonal process, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, attachment theory, strengths-based perspective, and trauma-informed care in my work. I also have a passion for working with women's issues, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and first-generation college students.
