I'm passionate about helping people lead their best lives and thrive. 

My approach is client-centered, compassion-focused and strengths-based. I'm honored to partner with clients to support them as they identify their strengths and find their inner wisdom to change behaviors, patterns, and dynamics that are no longer effective for them so that they can live their best lives. 

As a counselor, I collaborate with clients, drawing upon modalities that help heal the cognitive, emotional and somatic aspects of trauma and symptoms of anxiety and depression. These approaches might include mindful self-compassion, internal family systems (IFS), somatic approaches, attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) , and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) as well as psychodynamic approaches. I have experience working with gender identity, disordered eating, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and complex trauma.

As a coach, I use evidence-based practices to help clients get "unstuck," realize their goals,and live into their fullest potential so that they can create and sustain the changes they desire. I have extensive experience coaching students and adults toward their academic and career goals. I trained with the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) and am a member of the International  Coaching Federation (ICF).

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. --Maya Angelou
