I am not accepting new clients at this time. Are you a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) who feels overwhelmed by the current racial and political climate? Are you struggling to feel good about yourself? Do you focus your energy on caring for everyone else so much that your own needs get pushed aside? If you feel stuck repeating challenging patterns in your relationships, know that you are not alone. Let's work together to support you in becoming more balanced, self-confident, and intentional.

You've recently entered a new life stage. Despite your best efforts, you're struggling- overwhelmed with self-doubt, second-guessing, and fear. You want to move forward in a healthy way, but don't know how. There's conflict in many of your relationships. You feel stuck and need support as you untangle your emotions and boundaries. You're looking for a space to figure things out as you grow into your identity, determining what to keep from your family, experiences, and past, and what to leave behind.

Meaningful change requires us to ask new questions ... so that new meanings can be made. One of the hardest things is to change what doesn't work, while not knowing how to make it all different. For the past 24 years, I have worked with folks who are trying hard to build a life in spite of childhood abuse and neglect, or who just don't understand why life isn't working out the way they hoped.

Early exposure to the mental healthcare system taught me that oppression can be as multi-layered and intersectional as the oppressed, and diagnosis will continue to be an act of oppression if it ignores cultural context, societal phobias, and systemic oppression. For a great number, our mental health is a representation of how we survive our social climate. To see things creatively is to see symptoms as keys to recovery and radical healing. Before I was a therapist, I was a visual artist and writer. So not only have I been able to see things through a critical lens, I learned to appreciate imagery, symbolism and metaphor in life.

To paraphrase Alice Miller: the opposite of depression isn't happiness; it's vitality. My clients are people who want to feel more in control, more at peace, more effective, more connected, more present, more focused, more decisive, more flexible… more alive. They seek relief from patterns -- sometimes chronic and severe, sometimes only subtly nagging -- of painful feelings, negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors that stem from their experience of growing up in particular worlds and particular histories that were traumatic or difficult or confusing.

Navigating life's circumstances and challenges can take up a lot of space in our lives. Maybe you are looking for more spaciousness, more time for yourself, or an extra ear to listen to and fully "get" you. Or perhaps anxiety or depression has become a constant presence, and you desire a change and want more connection. Sharing our experiences with others provides an opportunity to feel understood. In a therapeutic relationship, we explore patterns and coping strategies to better form a picture of how we operate in the world. It can help us identify what is and isn't working towards getting your needs met more fully.
