It takes courage to seek out professional help. This may be your first time starting therapy or you are ready to continue the process after a new life challenge has come up. I strongly believe that you already have the inner resources you need to feel better, but may need assistance accessing these resources in a healthy way. Our work together will be about finding out what blocks you from feeling more empowered and alive. By learning new ways to be with difficult thoughts and experiences, it will be easier to meet the challenges and change that life inevitable brings.

We all have a natural resilience to heal from trauma, loss, and unexpected setbacks, however stories created about who we are can get in the way. They tell us we are not good enough, that we will fail, that we are not safe. They disconnect us from others, the world around us, and the goals we seek, they wreak havoc in our bodies. Together, we will partner to make sense of and transform these stories, allowing for growth and connection. I believe that even our adversities can be a source of strength and an opportunity to better ourselves.

I have special interest and experience working with BIPOC, First-Generation Americans, and LGBTQIA+ living with trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship distress, or difficult life transitions. It takes great strength and vulnerability to ask for help and to let someone in on our journey when we’re not sure they’ll understand us. As a human with my own identities, I understand and value the importance of the relationship between therapist and client. Your experiences deserve to be honored with care, empathy, and understanding and YOU deserve to feel heard, safe, and accepted.

Do you feel like you’re different from others or like you don’t belong? Maybe you identify as LGBTQ+ and sensed early on that you didn’t fit in. Or maybe you’ve been labeled as “weird” or “too sensitive" at times, which has left you feeling misunderstood. Whatever makes you different, we all have an innate desire to belong, but this desire can cause us to diminish ourselves in favor of who we think we “should” be. These “shoulds” can leave you feeling even more disconnected, anxious, depressed, and unworthy. However, this isn’t how it has to be. You can be accepted and live your truth, free from expectations and fear.

*I'm currently accepting new clients! My primary goal as a therapist is to provide an affirmative and supportive environment in which you feel comfortable exploring and experiencing true authenticity within yourself and in navigating that authenticity across relationships and different spaces. I believe that by living the most authentic version of ourselves we can then embrace experiencing the full range of emotions that life offers us, including difficult emotions and thoughts, unpleasant memories and unwanted urges and sensations, with courage, radical acceptance and deep compassion.

We all procrastinate from time to time— that assignment isn’t that hard, the towels aren’t that dirty, the mail isn’t so urgent. Suddenly, it’s 9:30PM, and even though you used the day productively (reorganizing Tupperware and extra electronic cables), the one thing you needed to do didn’t get done. Procrastination isn’t about being lazy or mismanaging time; it’s a misunderstanding of internal motivations and anxieties. I can help you implement changes in your life to decrease avoidant (procrastinating) behaviors as well as the frustration and guilt that comes with it.

My ideal client is someone who is feeling stuck in their life and who is looking for the tools and support to make changes. I believe that sadness and hardship are as much a part of the human experience as happiness and joy. Our pain becomes suffering when we try to push it away or avoid experiencing it all together. Therapy is the process of accepting the self as it is in a mix of strengths and weaknesses and finding the willingness to experience the present moment. Connection with values allows us to make mindful choices in our behavior.
