Hello! I'm already impressed with you for being here -- whether you're interested in a process of self-discovery or are looking for a more specific type of support, I see both as brave acts of self-compassion.
I will hold space for you to work through the challenges of being with people when being with people is hard, which can be for any number of reasons. In The Chrysalis Center, you can process your thoughts and emotions without judgment about how you "should" feel.
I am a person-centered therapist, and my theoretical orientation is integrative. What this means is that I believe you are the expert on your own life, and I am here to support and guide you as you tap into that personal expertise. I use a few different approaches to help my clients understand how their ways of showing up in the world are shaped by their thinking, which is influenced by both societal and family systems.
If it matters to you, I am an alum of Louisiana State University (but I don't follow football -- sorry, not sorry) and Washington University in St. Louis.
I draw from over a decade of clinical experience in a variety of settings. I am licensed in the states of Louisiana, Texas, and Washington and have been providing online psychotherapy since 2016.
