Overview

When you enter into a counseling relationship with me, I connect with you wherever you are on your path. My work is grounded in the belief that each person has a deep inner sense of knowing that will inform their healing. I offer tools, invitations for conversation, and practices that will create the time and space for you to feel better. Whether you are seeking a reduction in distressing symptoms or the opportunity to make meaning and move through a difficult time in your life, before you know it we will be celebrating yo.ur breakthroughs.

My therapeutic skill set is strengths-based and client-centered. I draw from CBT, DBT, and ACT, as well as recent explorations into the benefits of self-compassion and the mind/body connection.

I have significant experience supporting anxiety, depression, and neurodivergence in adolescents and adults. I also have a clinical interest in supporting life transitions, caregiver support, chronic illness, grief and loss, and death and dying.
