**Not accepting new clients at this time** We can lead fulfilling lives when we learn to cultivate accepting and compassionate relationships with ourselves and others. When we are harsh and critical with ourselves, or when trauma has blocked our ability to stay connected to our feelings, we shut down and turn away from difficult emotions. When we don’t know what we are feeling, we act on it instead in ways that can leave us feeling out of control, confused, and unheard. Tuning into the full range of our feelings, thoughts and beliefs is the first step toward feeling whole and authentic.
I aim to provide an understanding therapeutic space in which I will help you to access, articulate, and reflect upon all facets of your experience, and to learn to listen to yourself with greater attunement. My working style is interactive and non-judgmental, and I endeavor to bring curiosity, empathy, patience, and respect to our relationship.
I work with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship/family conflict, grief, illness, and creative blocks, among other challenges. I offer affirmative therapy for individuals in the LGBQ, trans/NB/GNC, kink/BDSM, poly, and sex work communities. I also work with couples and intimate partners across a variety of relationship structures.
