My Therapeutic Lens
Patience and safety are crucial in building trust. I work to create a safe environment for my clients to better understand themselves while creating realistic goals, fostering self-compassion, and reducing shame. Success is a move toward holistic wellbeing and health. This can be a long and difficult journey. I am here to support my clients as they move forward at their own pace while focusing on progress, not perfection.
People often find their way to therapy before they are ready to make changes. Years of struggling with problematic behaviors and thought processes can leave us feeling hopeless. My goal is to empower my clients to learn how to move through the struggles that may have held them back, and I aim to provide my clients with tools and support in their healing journey, using a combination of therapy approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I want to be a positive influence on my community. I’m always working to deepen my understanding of body diversity, gender issues, race, and privilege. Continued awareness and learning in these areas is my goal and responsibility as a helping professional. I strive to be an effective ally and advocate.
Each person faces a unique set of challenges and everyone deserves to feel proud of themselves as they move through difficulty and grow from past experiences. Personal experience can be a valuable asset in building self-esteem and helping others. Healing occurs as we learn to value our own story.
