“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I change” (Carl Rogers). This is the work of therapy. I approach this work holistically, attending to how each of us is impacted by past and present relationships, and by systemic influences. My perspective is grounded in humanistic and attachment theories, and influenced by multicultural and feminist thinking, with an emphasis on counteracting oppression and treating other traumas. Research has demonstrated that our bodies hold important information that contributes to healing, therefore I incorporate body-based techniques into therapy as well.
My intention as a therapist is to be a safe and trustworthy companion in exploring what got you where you are today, and helping you acknowledge and process your experiences. With partners and families, I look to honor each participant and foster understanding and empathy, promoting a sense of connection that can lead to more satisfying relationships.
Life is a courageous journey, and not always an easy one. Building a relationship with a therapist who receives us without conditions, or sits with us in our relationships without assigning blame, makes acceptance possible. I hope to provide an environment that gives you access to your capacity for healing and growth, and to liberating new opportunities.

I believe that building awareness is the first step to change. We will explore the sources of your patterns of relating to yourself, others, and the world, and whether those patterns support you to thrive. Once curiosity, awareness and acceptance are engaged, change often follows.

Humans are wired for connection. We will look at the impact of the relationships you are part of, from your closest people to the culture at large, and how they impact your well-being. I will help you become aware of your patterns of relating and how you might want to shift them. We get hurt along the way, so healing trauma is often a component of the therapy I do.
