I help teens and adults who feel lost or stuck learn about themselves and build skills to get through the negative cycles they find themselves in so they can live the life they want.
A little about me.
We all live in a world that is not set up for us to fully live our best lives. As a therapist my goal is to understand where you come from, how your life experiences have impacted you, and what your ideal self is - so I can work with you to create the building blocks to reach your personal goals. I believe that counseling is meant to be a team effort between the client and therapist and that it’s my job as the therapist to support and challenge you while you work to better understand yourself, how the world around you impacts you, and find the power within yourself to create the life you want to live. I hope to offer a safe space for you to really begin to understand yourself and work through things that may be holding you back. As a team I believe we can find a way to gather tools, strategies, and build skills that will help you make it through life long-term.
I believe that how we grew up and where we come from deeply guides how we think and live in the world today. Learning more about the impact of the expectations we were raised with can help us begin to dismantle the maladaptive responses we may have to the events in our lives. Once that begins to break down we can build ourselves back up with healthy strategies that will begin to improve our lives in many ways.
I hold a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Saybrook University (LIOS program) and am under supervision from Dr. Sanderson.
In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, gardening, and roller skating. I also enjoy working on puzzles while listening to science podcasts or audiobooks and watching my current favorite, or rewatching an old favorite, TV show.
