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.
