Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We all have times where we feel stuck--isolated, overwhelmed, incompetent, unheard, or lost. In our desire to get out of our predicament, we become increasingly hard on ourselves, which just digs us in deeper. In therapy I act as a compassionate collaborator, working alongside my clients to foster self acceptance. Whether dealing with trauma, transitions, relationships, or a mental illness, I balance providing a safe holding space for challenging emotions with formulating concrete action plans. These include developing healthy coping skills and routines, communicating needs to others, fostering connections, and ultimately exploring what makes you thrive. My approach incorporates mindfulness whenever possible, and I am trained in EMDR. I have several years' experience working with adults and youth suffering from mental illness as well as dual diagnosis in community health settings, as well as post-college adults trying to find their next step. I value making therapy affordable and accessable to all, and therefore offer an income-based sliding scale.
