My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and have been in practice since 2014. I strive to take a very holistic approach to your personal growth process and consider any part of your life that may be relevant to your healing. Some of these things can include (but are certainly not limited to) social justice issues, family dynamics/history, identity issues, physical health, and personal beliefs/experiences. I enjoy getting to know people as whole human beings and finding effective and creative ways to reach your goals. I believe strongly in finding a path that works best for each individual and walking along side you while we do the challenging, important, and rewarding work of therapy. (Accepting insurance starting January 2022.) Please contact to request a consultation to see if we might work well together. Thank you.

Techniques I Use


  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) External link

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an orientation rooted in mindfulness and exploring personal values to help guide you to a more enjoyable and meaningful life. I have many years of experience using ACT for a variety of issues including healing trauma, mood imbalances, anxiety, chronic pain, and personal growth. ACT can be highly personalized and focuses on "action" you can take to feel better and live your life in ways that bring fulfillment, meaning, and peace.

  • Narrative  External link

    We all have a unique story to tell and narrative work can be a creative and rewarding way to heal, grow, and find peace in our lives. Humans have been finding meaning in stories for thousands of years and I'm experienced in applying this innate ability to the work of therapy. Learning how to retell our stories in a more balanced way can be enlightening, empowering, and transformative.

  • Psychodynamic  External link

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    As human beings we are always changing. I believe that personal growth work is at the heart of most people's goals when they seek therapy. Helping people overcome the obstacles or challenges that are keeping you from growing and living a fulfilled and meaningful life is often a large part of my approach. I tend to focus on people's individual values and strengths to work through mental health struggles, relationship conflicts, life transitions, or anything else that is limiting personal growth.

  • PTSD External link

    I have worked with a variety of trauma survivors and find this work to be both rewarding and powerful. Far too many people experience trauma in their lives that goes unaddressed and can lead to a variety of problems. Unresolved trauma can cause relationship issues, physical health problems, and an overall lack of meaning and enjoyment in life. Processing the past in a safe and accepting space can be incredibly freeing for those who have experienced traumatic events.

  • Depression External link
  • Anxiety External link
