Let's face it, you've been in survival mode for far too long. You're tired of letting intense emotions and past hurts get in the way of moving forward, and you’re ready to take action to build a life worth living. I can help! I'm passionate about working with clients struggling with high anxiety, emotional intensity, attachment wounds, and relational trauma. I'm a neurodivergent affirming provider with both lived and professional experience and a One Iowa LGBTQ+ inclusive therapist. My goal is to help you discover your own power to learn, heal, and grow from adversity in order to find peace, connection, and purpose.
As a biracial therapist, I am committed to practicing through an anti-racist, feminist, & social justice-oriented lens. My style of therapy is conversational, collaborative, & compassion-focused. I don't care if you swear (I will too!) & I believe in the power of laughter as a tool for healing and connection. Your authentic self is both welcome & celebrated.
Beginning any new relationship, whether personal or professional, can be nervewracking. Trust me, I've been on both sides of the couch - both as a therapist as well as a client. We all have our "stuff" and I know how important it is to find a therapist who hears you and "gets it." I offer a brief 15-minute consultation call to see if we're a good fit.
