MA, LMFTA/Sex Therapy Intern, (She/They), Sex, Relationship & Intimacy Therapist
What You Can Expect
Many individuals are apprehensive about starting therapy as change can feel daunting. As a therapist, I aim to create spaces in which we can be more aware, vulnerable, and authentic together. Once people begin to feel validated and supported, that opens up a safe space where they may consider ways to live in accordance with their values. I believe that empathic relationships can be transformative. It’s amazing what small changes in a person’s life can do for their sense of agency and autonomy. There’s tremendous value in slowing down, naming what we are feeling, and processing our experiences.
As a systems therapist, I consider the many contexts involved in making each person’s experience unique and tailor treatment approaches to my client’s unique needs. I center my work around Narrative Therapy to reauthor stories and create new meanings. I also practice attachment-based theories and Emotionally Focused Therapy, so please get ready to be curious about your emotions’ messages, relationships with early attachment figures, childhood memories, and attachment ruptures. My clients describe me as approachable, direct, transparent, and resourceful. Most of my clients are surprised by how much they laugh in therapy.
