About me

I specialize in anxiety, trauma, OCD, PTSD and love helping people work through perfectionism and shame.

Most people want a counselor that's down-to-earth. Someone that will *really* listen and shoot for a thorough understanding of your experiences. Someone that is gentle yet straightforward. And someone that isn't scared to talk about the things that have felt unmentionable in your life. With a little bit of humor sprinkled in when it's called for. All of these things are the foundation of how I love to work and connect with people. I believe being real in the therapy room and truly "getting" people is crucial--something that can make or break the work we do. Therapy is hard enough without feeling like we're being misunderstood or unseen. In my office (or through a screen), I'll make sure you feel known, not just the problem.

The relationship is key but effective work also means using individualized, collaborative techniques supported by research. I involve all my clients in the generation of treatment plans, goals, and the changing of course when necessary because I believe you are the expert on your life and therapy is never one-size-fits-all. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is my go-to, which I tailor differently for each new client. I'm trained in Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) and trauma-based interventions that can help people process through the junk that gets them stuck.
