“When we work from a place that says, ‘I’m enough,’ then we stop screaming and start listening, we’re kinder and gentler to the people around us, and we’re kinder and gentler to ourselves.” ~Brené Brown
To be human is to feel. Sometimes these feelings overwhelm us; sometimes they deplete us completely. Whatever has led you to this moment, know that there is tremendous strength in seeking help. This is where we can begin.
My therapeutic approach is stigma-busting, person-centered, and grounded in Systems Theory. This means that I work to create space for exploring both you as an individual as well as the entities and obstacles outside your control. Together, we’ll delve into themes around identity and belonging, oppression and hardship, and we’ll make meaning of who you are and what has happened to you. Though I’ll bring a certain level of professional expertise to the room, I’ll also honor you as the expert of your own life and as an equal partner in the treatment process. I’ll gently push you toward more productive patterns of thinking and behavior, and I’ll champion you through each milestone on your road to healing.
I’m passionate about supporting adults, teens, and children as young as 10 years old. As a longtime youth and family advocate, I have extensive training in facilitating growth through life changes, grief and loss, and in the aftermath of trauma. I commit to meeting clients where they are and collaborating on a plan for moving forward.
I also know firsthand the responsibilities that accompany our roles as students, workers, caregivers, and family members. For this reason, I’m happy to offer early morning and later evening sessions to help accommodate your scheduling needs. Let’s get started on unearthing your happiest, most fulfilling life.
