LCSW, LAC, EMDR
I help people better understand themselves, their relationships, and their experiences so they can learn how to respond in ways that make sense long term rather than getting stuck in emotional reactions that often only confuse things further.

I typically meet with clients weekly or every other week as the therapy relationship is like any other relationship--consistency creates a safe place to explore and dig deeper into the issues at hand. I value being fully present and energetically attuned to my clients and consider my approach to be an active, engaged conversation. I like to ask questions to get my clients curious about themselves and their patterns. I see my role as one of reflective partner who can be a mirror to help clients identify their own internal knowing & what is and is not working for them. Transformation happens when we feel understood and accepted without judgment; I strive to provide that experience for my clients in session. I feel honored partnering with people in this process as I consider therapy a sacred space to explore. I work flexible hours and am available Monday through Thursday. I do not have evening availability open at this time. I offer remote telehealth (video) sessions if needed.
I consider myself an integrative psychotherapist because my background is broad and I am able to apply a variety of modalities to help clients achieve their goals in therapy. I have been in private practice for several years but most of my background has been working in community mental health centers and inside jails and prisons serving those who have experienced severe Trauma. To me, this work experience has solidified my belief that humans are humans and we all connect through similar emotional experiences (for example: fear is felt similarly in each person even if created differently). We all have great capacity for change if we can access support to help us tap into our resiliency. I believe people do not need to be “fixed” in the counseling process because we are not inherently bad but are a product of what has happened to us. Counseling should help someone understand who they are now because of their experiences so they can shed unnecessary thoughts and emotions and live fully.
