My favorite part of being a therapist is the act of bearing witness- bearing witness to my clients’ truths, to their traumas, to their unique stories, and to their identities. I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and from there I developed a dynamic and relational approach to therapy. I believe that distress can be rooted in the effects of our past and present relationships, and therefore healing can also be rooted in relationships. What this means is that I want our therapist-client relationship to be a place of safety and healing for you. No concern is too big or too small for therapy. I encourage you to reach out to talk to me about anything under the sun.
What can you expect from me in therapy? No judgement. I will not be placing my values onto you, and I will welcome each and every part of you into therapy. My main goal is to keep the space full of warmth, trust, and genuineness. Most importantly, I am going to challenge myself to be creative. Do you want to use art in therapy? Do you want to use the session to meditate and practice mindfulness with a guide? Do you wish to dive deep and research your mental health history and early relationships? Whatever it is, I’m committed to learning and growing alongside you.
I aspire to help you improve your coping strategies, gain insight into your concerns, and recognize your blindspots in your relationship with yourself and with others. Here are some common concerns we could talk about (this list is not inclusive):
- Physical, sexual, emotional abuse
- Racial/ethnic identity development
- Spirituality & Religion
- Sleeping and/or eating concerns
- Body image concerns
- Life transitions
