Throughout the years, I have been a therapist for children, teenagers and adults of all ages. I enjoy working with individuals as well as providing relationship, family and group counseling to human beings in all types of relationship and family structures.
Many clients have worked with me on anxiety, stress, depression, addressing relationships, healing from trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, and improving their relationships with themselves. I have had a good deal of experience in helping with family conflict and parenting challenges. I use bits and pieces from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Collaborative Problem Solving, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I come from a person-centered, strengths-based perspective. My work is influenced by neuroscience research and mindfulness-based practices.
In my practice, I work to co-create a compassionate, non-judgmental, open space in which we can work together to set goals, strengthen skills, and build healing & resilience. It’s genuinely a passion for me to assist you in exploring and discovering more about your own mind. With this embodied learning (along with support and patience), you can begin to guide your mind to “work” for you- rather than you “working” for it. I welcome any and all feedback as my counseling is about supporting you in the way that you need to be supported.
When I work with clients, I see more than just the problem as we all exist in this world together. We face huge challenges in modern day society, and these challenges vary with social, economic, racial, gender, cultural, ability (and other) related factors. I of course have a narrow point of view as I’ve only experienced life with the identities and privileges I hold; grounded in this knowledge, I do my best to truly listen and learn from all of my clients. You are the expert on your life and your experiences; my goal is to support you while empowering you to deeply tune into your authentic self.
My current standard rate for individual therapy is $140 per 50-minute session. However, sliding scale and lower-fee options for payment are always available. Additionally, I may be able to work with your insurance company as an “out of network” provider. Just be in touch with any questions about payment.
I would love to explore the possibility of joining you on your journey. Please reach out if you have any questions for me or if you’d like to schedule a consultation to explore working together.
