I have extensive experience working with a diverse population of people and am committed to anti-oppressive/anti-racist work.

I have worked with clients who have experienced sudden loss both individually and in groups. This loss can be due to the death of a family member, the mental/physical deterioration of a family member/loved one, the loss of a job, or the loss of a relationship. I have extensive experience working with families, especially in the field of parenting. Additionally, I have worked with clients who struggle with eating disorders, and those who have been victims of sexual abuse. I have worked with people who are depressed, anxious or are having difficulties with life transitions.

I work with people on a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anger

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Eating Patterns or Eating Disorders

  • Grief & Bereavement

  • Life Transitions

  • Self-Esteem

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

Everyone can benefit from going to therapy. Therapy is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and our relationships. Many people have misconceptions about what therapy is, who it’s for, and how it works. Therapy is about developing insight into why people think, act, and feel the way they do and to help people better understand how their family histories and life experiences impact their daily lives. You should go to therapy if you’re not feeling like yourself, are experiencing anxiety or depression, feel like you’re missing something, have low self-confidence, recently lost a loved one, are feeling guilty or empty, and/or are having difficulties sleeping or self-soothing.
