When my clients are functioning at their best they are creative, playful, passionate, and hard-working. They are adults aged 18+ who are interested in a holistic look at their wellbeing (including factors like sleep quality, relationships, movement etc.). When struggling they tend to find themselves overwhelmed with worry, self-doubt, and/or self-criticism. They are also curious about their body sensations and what that information may mean for their mental health.

I believe every person has the innate ability to heal and grow. I believe that we can best do so when accompanied compassionately along our journeys. Through increasing self-awareness, cultivating our inner and external resources, and understanding the interconnected influences of mind and body in our daily lives, we can transform through painful times and arrive into greater and deeper capacity for relationships to ourselves and with others. I specialize in working with adults through trauma healing, grief and loss (including that of beloved animals), LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships, depression/anxiety, and life transitions.

You've tried meeting with "trauma therapists," but it can be so hard to find the right person when you feel like they don't get your lifestyle. Moreso when you're a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, the kink community, or the ethical non-monogamy/poly community. Nobody should have to live with the pain of shame, sadness, worry, or mistrust that comes from having survived traumas. Everyone deserves to reach their full potential without the weight of awful experiences and trauma weighing them down. Imagine living without your triggers, anger, and panic attacks, and living with excitement, pleasure, and motivation again.
