Professional statement

Through her integrative, strength-based approach, Mae empowers each client to become the best possible versions of themselves. She also draws from a psychodynamic foundation to identify clients' relational and emotional patterns.

During major life transitions—even exciting ones like getting married, starting a new job, or moving to a new city—many people experience difficult emotions they feel like they can’t express. Therapy with Mae is the process of undoing isolation and aloneness. Her ultimate goal is for clients to feel supported as they enter new life stages.

Mindfulness and self compassion are key components of Mae’s approach. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to reframe clients’ beliefs, thoughts, and feelings from a more positive perspective, and sometimes pulls in Internal Family Systems to look at all the different parts that make up the self. As a result, Mae gives clients tools to question their inner critic, and reach a place of compassionate self awareness.


Message to clients

Life transitions are a time of personal growth and exploration. Maybe you’ve finally earned your diploma, signed a new job offer, or booked a one-way ticket to the other side of the country.

Possibilities are seemingly endless, and everywhere you turn, there are opportunities to start fresh, shed old parts of your identity, and form new relationships.

Change can bring up a mix of emotions. If you find yourself feeling nervous or wondering what’s next, I’ll facilitate a space to explore your inner world as you move into your next phase.

The undoing of aloneness you can find in therapy is so powerful. Many of us feel isolated when moving through difficult emotions, but with guidance, it’s easier to see yourself as a part of a whole.

Therapy is a space to be messy, vulnerable, and explore your tender parts, so we’ll move at a pace that’s comfortable for you. Together, we’ll identify your strengths, clarify your values, and work through anxiety to co-create solutions that move to where you want to be. My goal is for you to feel confident being fully, authentically yourself and building a life you love.
