I have supported clients to create healing & change in their lives around sexual abuse; incarceration trauma ; substance use; unhealthy relationships; depression; anxiety & other challenges.
I work with clients to cultivate deeper insight & understanding about the ways in which our life experiences & ways of being in the world impact our choices & behaviors. In working this way I have found that clients feel empowered to make changes to unhealthy behaviors & create proactive coping strategies for managing situations they may not, as yet, be able to change. I draw upon clients' strengths, culture, spirituality & community as a means of facilitating healing, empowerment & change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in social justice principles.

I find it rewarding helping my clients to feel safe, to process feelings of loss associated with trauma , and to rebuild their lives.
"We are now able to see the essential ingredient that makes psychotherapy effective and successful. Is is not "unconditional positive regard," nor is it magical words, techniques, or postures; it is human involvement and struggle. It is the willingness of the therapist to extend himself or herself for the purpose of nurturing the patient's growth - willingness to go out on a limb, to truly involve oneself at an emotional level in the relationship."

I am trauma informed and attuned to the ways that systemic oppression impacts our experience of life.
Within all of us lives an inner healing intelligence that is unique to each individual. Although sometimes internal or external barriers prevent us from connecting with this internal resource. As a therapist, I am committed to creating a safe container where you can get in touch with your own inner wisdom. I will be a collaborator with you on your journey of self-discovery and meaning making, to examine and explore these barriers and patterns that contribute to feelings of stuckness.

We work with identified patterns and memories; we take time to understand and witness the impact of actions and events; and in good time we may safely unburden or release what the system (the body, the brain, parts of Self) stored as trauma .
*Not accepting new clients* I work well with people who as children, and now as adults, were impacted by a primary caregiver who was caught in a substance use cycle. Often there was a family culture of unpredictability, rigid rules, abuse, neglect, loss, humiliation, violation, and violence. My clients had to choose safety and inclusion over being themselves or being embodied, and want help addressing fear, shame, and critical self-concepts so that they can come back to themselves. They often have some grieving to do. They want to go beyond interpretation or assessment and yet still seek to understand the heart of things.

If you've every felt like you were in a "space of stuck" you are not alone. Many individuals struggle to pinpoint the barriers to living an enhanced life that optimizes their potential. Trauma , and historical experiences can contribute to this state of suspension. You have the opportunity and capability to change direction, no matter how long you've felt like you were heading to "destination nowhere". It is never too late for personal development. The addition of therapeutic services, support, and healthy coping skills can be the catalyst for positive momentum.

I have experience working with families with children aged 0-7, trauma , PTSD , anxiety, Domestic Violence, and behavioral issues.
In every phase of life, we are presented with new challenges: stress, issues at work, challenging relationships, feeling stuck, depression, difficulties with your kids, difficulties with your parents, pain, loss, anxiety, fear. It is not always easy to manage these challenges when they come our way, and sometimes we just need some support in processing it all, and figuring out what to do next. Everyone needs support, therapy is for everyone. In my practice, I want to get to know you, understand your challenges, understand your needs, and understand your goals. Together we can work toward overcoming the challenges you are facing.

I approach therapy with a frame of trauma healing and social justice.
Regardless of our circumstances, we are all capable of healing. I know this because I have experienced it myself and have witnessed and accompanied people in untenable conditions deepen awareness about their patterns and access the agency necessary to change. I see therapy as one way to heal backwards through the harm of our families, socialization, and systems of oppression and supremacy that have shaped our behaviors and beliefs. I support clients to connect to their inherent resilience and learn new skills when survival strategies no longer serve them.

Healing personal, ancestral and collective trauma creates more freedom for all of us.
Whatever you have lived through--healing is possible. I provide therapy for people living outside of the mainstream, whether because of values and ideals or personal identity. Therapy with me doesn't require that you or I believe there is anything wrong with you. Instead it is a place where both of us work collaboratively and creatively to develop an environment where you can take more and more risks to be yourself. It is a place to keep growing. It is a place to get real about what matters to you and what challenges you. Keywords: radical, queer, artists, activists, social justice, progressive
