Announcement icon I am open for in-person sessions, but I am also happy to hold appointments by video or by phone.

About

I draw on the commonalities that exist between therapeutic approaches, and am aligned with anti-oppression perspectives. I utilize deep, introspective practices and pragmatic, solution-oriented practices to help clients cultivate greater self-compassion; achieve greater effectiveness in their relationships and communities; and grow towards deeper fulfillment in their lives. I am also able to offer a truly holistic therapy, combining talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement. I am a good fit for those impacted by marginalization, those with shame and self-esteem challenges, those impacted by trauma and addiction, and for couples.
Wellness is best approached by addressing mind, body, and spirit. In addition to talk therapy, I am extensively practiced in mindfulness, and have been a personal trainer. I am also a social anthropologist and always aim to contextualize people's struggles in wider social and cultural forces. Therefore, I am a good fit for those of diverse backgrounds.
I have extensive experience working with LGBTQ+ communities; with substance use and addiction concerns; and with people affected by loss, illness and trauma.
