Supporting growth in self-awareness helps us lean into who we are, accept ourselves, and look at growth edges that may be painful or scary.  As a therapist, I encourage my clients to achieve better ways of engaging with problems of living and improve personal well-being by expanding self-awareness and developing interpersonal communication skills. 


In utilizing a clinical, Gestalt-oriented, developmental lens with evidence-based approaches, I support clients where they are and as they engage in the therapeutic process. Working collaboratively with clients, we become curious about your life and patterns of interacting with others; whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or trauma; or are exploring who you are and how you want to live in the world; or feel stuck in your life and relationships and yearn for personal growth.

My clients most often report experiencing; increased self-awareness, expanded understanding of interpersonal interactions, improved communication, a desire to experiment with new ways of being in the world, and stronger connection to self. 

To support my clinical growth, and my clients, I seek supervision from Roberta Taliaferro, LPCC-S and Jacqueline Salter, LPCC-S.
