I approach therapy

with a nonjudgmental perspective and a curiosity to understand the unique experiences leading clients to therapy.

I believe a strong, genuine connection and collaboration between therapist and client can not only be an opportunity to improve coping skills and process through trauma and other difficulties, but also a catalyst to improving access to experiences of joy and contentment in life.

As a therapist, I use Interpersonal Psychotherapy and attachment-based approaches in my work. I am also trained in EMDR, DBT, and utilize other trauma-informed interventions and parts work.

I am here to support clients with their therapy goals whether returning or starting for the first time. Therapy is often a brave journey of exploring the parts of ourselves that we might avoid... feeling scared, sad, angry, worried, confused, and rejected. I encourage clients to be curious about what emotions and patterns arise both during and outside of therapy sessions as an opportunity for growth and healing.

I am a member of the LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapist Guild of Utah and also work from a multicultural lens to acknowledge and respect the unique challenges of people facing oppression due to other marginalized identities (race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability status, etc.). I am affirming of individuals who engage in Polyamory, ENM, kink, and other alternative relationships or lifestyles.
