About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Working with me feels like a cross of talking with your best friend and a mom who really gets it. No judgement, but there is always a lot of support.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    This time is yours. There is nothing off limits or too "weird". I want you to come as you are. I can help you use your strengths to pivot away from negative habits. I am honest and direct, but always compassionate.

  • Together, we will:

    identify what you want to work on, learn how to have compassion for yourself, and explore how to use your strengths to make the life you want. If that looks like ERP, CBT, or some other acronym, I got your back.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are highly-functioning but anxious. My clients typically are burnt out from taking on the needs of everyone around them. They always seem to "have it together", but are overthinking, often people-pleasing, indecisive, and incredibly strong and kind.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I love being the person who brings clarity to mind. I am empathic, and try to teach my clients to be as compassionate to themselves as I am to them.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I try to use humor. I love what I do and believe my work is important, but that doesn't mean we have to be serious all of the time.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I do not focus on fixing problems. Instead we focus on how to use your strengths to help you Cope & Calm. This assists me greatly in practicing ERP for trauma and OCD recovery.
