My Ideal Client

I work with individuals age 14 and up. I am neurodivergent affirming, LGBTQIA+ affirming, and social justice oriented.

My Approach to Helping

My approach begins with listening to you. We'll talk about what's working for you, what's not working anymore, and what you want your life to look or feel like. I'll take your lead on where you'd like to go in therapy. If you're not sure, then we'll figure it out together. First, I want to validate that our world is a difficult one to thrive in and is oppressive to many. Let's look at how it affects you! Some of the other ways we might work include looking at how you grew up and what you learned about yourself and the world around you from your family. We might "listen in" to what it sounds like in your mind and see what adjustments you might work on in your thought processes. We also might look at what old coping strategies you're using - those ones that REALLY helped you survive in the past - that aren't so helpful anymore. I work in an unstructured way, meaning we'll talk about whatever is most important to you each time we meet.

More About the People I Treat

Many of my clients have felt depression or anxiety for years and are just now getting to a place where they feel able to address it. Having experienced and learned to manage both myself, I don't want you to have to feel that way anymore. I work with individual adults and teens, many of whom are neurodivergent. I have a background in working with people experiencing issues including depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, self-esteem issues, trauma, grief and loss, academic difficulties, career concerns, and stress.

Techniques I Use


  • Humanistic  External link

    The foundation of my counseling practice is humanistic. I see clients as the experts in their own experience, and I take a truly non-judgmental, collaborative approach to helping clients unleash their innate potential for healing.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    CBT helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way. CBT looks at the relationship between your beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and the behaviors that follow.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) External link

    Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) teaches mindfulness skills to help individuals live and behave in ways consistent with personal values while developing psychological flexibility.

Issues I Treat


  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I have been working with teens for many years on addressing not only depression, anxiety, and low self-worth, but looking closely at the causes of it. Let's look closely at why you feel the way you do, and work to make changes.

  • Depression External link

    I have decades of personal experience with depression and learning to manage its symptoms, but that's just me. Depression can have so many different causes. Let's look into what's going on in your life and mind, and see what we can do to get you feeling better.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety sucks, and yet we need it to survive. Let's look at why your anxiety is working harder than it needs to.
