Announcement icon I primarily offer phone or video sessions with some exceptions due to client needs. Please contact for more information.
I provide competent, compassionate mental health care with a flare of comic relief. Life is precious and absurd, I appreciate the exploration of it all. I approach the psychological work from a non-dualistic lens. I believe each of us have inherent wisdom and that we all need support and reminders to more readily access our internal and external resources. I look forward to walking side by side you on your journey of growth, reflection and healing. I'm skilled at providing in-depth mental health assessments/diagnostics to support client's in better understanding their challenges and I provide congruent coping strategies/treatment.
I specialize in utilizing a trauma informed approach with those recovering from acute and chronic trauma, addiction/alcoholism, high conflict divorce/separation, suicidal thoughts, and sexual assault. I also offer support to those struggling with issues around LGBTQA+ identity and the cultural constructs that can be oppressive to authentic self expression.
My goal in therapy is to build relationships based on compassion, authentic connection and equal dignity. I have learned that joy and sorrow are inseparable aspects of life and the ability to maintain and create supportive relationships is essential in navigating both. I hope to have the opportunity to honor your pain as well as celebrate your innate beauty.
