My ideal client is willing to engage in the messy process of understanding themselves, the scary, the unattractive, the confusing and the unknown. I do not believe therapy is meant to be a chore, or punishment but a human process in which we receive healing through vulnerability and action. I am an interactive, goofy, transparent and direct individual. I believe my client's are the ultimate experts on themselves and therefore I encourage everyone I work with to express their fears, desires and needs in regards to their well-being. My intentions are always to create an atmosphere of safety so we may explore the wonders of you! I offer the clinical modalities of EMDR (formally trained), Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Solution-Focused Therapy, Poly-Vagal Theory and Family-Systems Therapy. I have robust professional experience in the areas of severe depression, anxiety/panic, suicidality, and self-harm, relational stressors and am LGBTQ informed and allied.
