Therapy is a unique space to feel truly seen and heard as you are. With the understanding that seeking therapy often feels risky and exposing, I prioritize creating a collaborative and trusting relationship where clients can share at their own pace without fear of judgment. My style is warm and genuine, and I prioritize the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for healing. Through our work together, I hope for you to cultivate a richer sense of meaning in your life and feel a deeper connection to yourself and others.
My experience in advocacy and time spent teaching speech and debate to inmates at an Idaho correctional facility informs my perspective. Both taught me the importance of unconditional positive regard, meeting people where they are, and viewing people holistically within their environments. I use a person-centered, relational approach and incorporate feminist and existential therapy; simultaneously, each person has singular challenges that deserve a tailored approach. I am passionate about remaining curious and continuously learning to become a better clinician.
A bit about me: I am a second-year student at Fordham University pursuing my Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I spent the first ten years of my childhood in southern California, then moved to Idaho, where I spent the next 12 years of my life. I attended Boise State University for my BS in Political Science and competed on the speech and debate team. After graduating, my partner and I moved to Washington, DC, where I spent four years as an executive assistant at an international law firm before realizing therapy was my dream career. I channel my passions for athletics and performance into competitive bodybuilding as a hobby. Other ways I spend my time include going on walks, reading, listening to podcasts, and spending time with my partner and friends.
