About

Reaching out to talk to someone can be a very vulnerable decision to make. Maybe this is your first time seeking the support of a therapist or maybe you've been in therapy for years. There may be something specific that you are struggling with, or perhaps you are just interested in working on your overall personal growth. Wherever you are in your process, I am glad that you've landed here. As someone who has been on the path of self-growth and healing for many years, I know what it feels like to ask: Why do I feel this way? Will it get better?
I believe that we can get at the root of what is happening in our emotional lives and find healthier and kinder ways to move forward. So many of us feel unequipped to handle what our lives throw at us. Therapy can offer us the support we need when we feel stuck or alone or overwhelmed. It can be a soft landing place where we can feel understood and seen.
My approach to therapy is warm, attentive, embodied, and supportive. I will offer insights, observations, and gentle challenges when you need them. I believe that therapy should be inclusive and anti-oppressive, and I strive to embody these qualities. I welcome you to email me for a free phone consultation to see if we might be a good fit to work together.
