My Ideal Client

I specialize in working with clients who are wanting to find relief & healthy coping skills around anxiety, depression, as well as their relationship to self & others. My work with clients focuses on healing past trauma, relational hurts & self-defeating beliefs that compound symptoms of depression & anxiety. If you are feeling disconnected from yourself and others, working together could be deeply impactful. Growth, healing & relief are possible.

My Approach to Helping

I provide warmth, honesty, acceptance & authenticity with all clients. I am sincerely invested in the person I am sitting with & helping them move towards their goals. I have been working with individuals for 4 years in my private practice & have witnessed client success in alleviating symptoms of distress & change towards healthy coping. I use an existential philosophy when implementing techniques that have been scientifically proven to be effective. Ultimately, I believe we are in this together. Despite the tools we find that work best for you & the methods used to process, explore & gain clarity, having a safe relationship to do the vulnerable work that is therapy is what is most important for me to provide you. You will be met where you're at & accepted as you are.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the power of being seen, heard and validated in our unique human experience as a means of working through our own mental health issues, past hurts & traumas. Therapy tools, techniques and coping strategies although important, effective & provided will come only once their is a genuine felt safety of a non-judgmental & wholly accepting environment.

Techniques I Use


  • Humanistic  External link

    My work is built on the foundation of person-centered care where the work is compassionate, authentic, non-judgmental and collaborative.

  • Existential External link

    Existing can be difficult and none are exempt from the human condition that inevitably delves into an exploration of our existence, meaning, and fulfillment. This is the main philosophy I utilize in assessment, treatment, and overall work in this space.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    Personal growth and increasing self-compassion, as well as self-understanding for my clients, is one of my main techniques to utilize in tandem with other interventions depending on presenting concerns.

  • Adjustment Disorder External link

    Experience with clients in navigating big life cycle changes or processing what is hindering progress in my practice is common.

  • Anxiety External link

    I specialize in grounding techniques and anxiety management.

  • Depression External link

    I specialize in processing and specific interventions to decrease depression symptoms.
