Meet the Providers
I believe a strong provider-patient relationship is pivotal to successful outcomes, and is built on compassionate, open communication. My goal is for us to work together to collaborate in creating the best course of treatment for you. I want to help set you up for success to improve your overall quality of life.
As an LPC I offer a large scope of services rooted in evidence based practices. For those who have experienced marginalization and oppression, you and all of your identities are welcome into my office. I am a direct and respectful therapist. Engage in the therapeutic process with me for an experience towards growth, change, and honesty with yourself.
I know that starting with a new clinician can be scary at first but I am here to meet you where you are. I truly believe that healing starts when a patient feels heard and that they can trust their provider. I want this to be a journey we go on together. I value your input and will use that information to best design a plan together that will provide you with the most success so that you can live the best and most full life.
Lets be present together. I am enthusiastically passionate about mental health, brain development, and the brain-body connections. I practice a client centered therapeutic approach integrating a variety of evidence-based
techniques, primarily pulling from CBT, mindfulness, existentialism, and radical acceptance. I like to integrate breathwork, emotional regulation, and meditation with the clients who are interested in the practice.
Psychotherapy is aimed to help a person deal with specific issues. Whether it be develop coping skills or enhance interpersonal relationships or manage symptoms I can assist will any of these.
My colleagues would consider me direct, and I am comfortable with this. Therapy does not have a linear progression. I think anyone willing to do the work in their own mental health is a good place to start. I am available to help anyone interested in seeking more insight to themselves.
The grace, acceptance, and strength of my clients inspires me and continually shapes my practice. My
particular interests and specialties tend to fall within women’s issues, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, addiction, parenting and relationship Issues. The belief that everyone deserves access to quality mental health care and a chance to be the best version of themselves informs every element of my work. With respect to professional orientation, my approach is grounded in client-centered, CBT, DBT, solution, multicultural and trauma informed approaches.
Hello and welcome! You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for the help you need and deserve. I’d like to help you work on the struggles you are facing; and offer you a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I’m a radically honest counselor who believes that people need to accept and become comfortable with life’s emotions in order to heal and be happy. My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as transparent, supportive, caring, and compassionate, with a pretty good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker holding over 20 years of experience in human services professions providing clinical counseling therapy services to a wide variety of populations including facilitating individual, group, and family therapy. My approach is Trauma-Informed, person-centered utilizing Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy interventions emphasizing a holistic treatment plan focusing on improving all aspects of a client’s life; emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
I am passionate about our body’s innate wisdom and what our nonverbal experiences have to say. I am skilled at staying present with the full range of emotions, so I can go wherever you need to go in your emotional work. There is often powerful insight and relief when we allow ourselves to work with our body in therapy rather than against it. Building awareness with curiosity and compassion is a team effort in my office, and I would love to see where we can grow together.
