"Some people struggle with preconceived ideas about what therapy is. I ask my clients if they had a tooth ache, would they go to a dentist to relieve their pain? I see difficult life experiences, transitions and "stuff" we struggle with as the same as taking those issues to a therapist. If you are stuck in your life, suffering and experiencing a significant loss, if a relationship is troubling, if your anxiety is getting the best of you, if your depression has got you paralyzed ...then seeking relief is taking care of yourself. For any of these issues, therapy is the place to take it."

"It’s hard to tune out those inner critics that leave us feeling not good enough, alone, and hopeless. Sometimes we have difficult thoughts and experiences we have never shared with anyone that also leave us feeling nervous, disconnected and depleted. What if you could take all that negativity and use it to fuel creativity? A kind of creativity that offers healing and liberation from the hurt- one that allows movement when we are stuck. In therapy with me you will free your own voice with more than just talk. My approach is empathic, gender affirming, culturally humble, LGBTQIA+ celebrating, radically accepting, and direct."

"Seeing your child struggle is such a helpless feeling. You wish you could find the right words that would fix it all, but nothing that you say, and no amount of logic that you use seems to help. Perhaps you have even tried therapy before, with little progress or success, and you're not sure if this is even a fixable problem. Your child's struggles have become the focus of the entire family. You just want your happy little boy or girl back and to have normalcy restored at home."

Your son freezes on homework and tests, feeling that everything must be perfect, and you feel guilty, as you wonder if you've passed these anxious thoughts down to him. Sunday night comes and they're preoccupied with the thought of the impending school week, and no matter how rational you are with them, they can't shake the dread that comes with going to school."
