I work with adults and teens 16+ to overcome anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and trauma. I also specialize in burnout recovery and self care.

Seeking help is a great first step and an awesome investment in yourself. As a therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients to create change. My role is not to tell you what to do, but rather to support and empower you. I'm pretty direct (while still being empathetic, of course), and I encourage you to be direct with me too. My style is authentic, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. I strive to create an inclusive space for people to heal and feel understood. I mainly work with adults and teens ages 16+. I have a special interest in working with young adults, college/grad students, and other therapists/helping professionals.
My specialties include anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, boundaries/assertiveness, self care/burnout, and adjustment to life transitions. I'm trained in EMDR, and I also draw from CBT and person-centered therapy. You can read more about my specialties on my website!
Therapy isn't always serious or difficult – it can actually be a positive and uplifting part of your week. Whenever possible, I aim to balance out the difficult moments with lightness and hope. We will work together to overcome challenges, set goals, and create personal growth. Please reach out if you're interested in working with me!
