About me

I am a therapist known for my warmth and compassion, who works to see the world from the perspective of each client, and support and empower without judgement. After a career change in 2013, I have over four years of therapy experience sharing my love of life while building hope, confidence, and long-lasting positive change. I am a relationship builder who adapts around each client's specific needs. I have experience working with stress and anxiety, depression, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, and increasing motivation and self-esteem. I feel I have many gifts that strengthen my practice: a passion for connection and collaboration, expertise in evaluation and problem-solving, and a diverse life experience. Guided by the client's desires and needs, I utilize interventions from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma-Responsive Care among other evidence-based practices. I am here to support and empower you in your journey toward positive change.

It was pure magic being paired with Genevieve. She is such a positive influence in my life and helped me navigate difficult decisions throughout the time I met with her. The ease of talking to her made the experience of being in therapy so much more memorable and impactful.

I tend to try and deal with things on my own so when I finally got to the point where I decided I needed therapy, I was really lucky to find Genevieve. I was lucky in finding a therapist who understood a lot of the hobbies, gets on tangents with me, and manages to get me to talk about my problems as I usually try to brush them under the rug. I enjoy that we have similar personality traits, so that I have someone who relates while also being able to give professional ideas and tips on how to better myself. I feel more comfortable talking to her than I usually do with anyone else!
