I consider my ability to meet clients where they are, as a strength in my therapeutic approach. I recognize the courage that is needed to seek help and I honor the process of building a genuine foundation at an organic pace. I emphasize the importance of intersectionality and treating the client as a whole. My hope is to utilize encouragement, a lack of judgment and sincerity in order to cultivate a consistently safe and honest space. I encourage my clients to share feedback in order to maintain a collaborative therapeutic relationship that best suits the client.

More specifically, adolescents and young adults who may struggle with life transitions, sports related trauma/anxiety, major decision making, ADHD, self-confidence issues, self confidence and relationship issues.
