I love working with those who don't always feel comfortable or "seen" in clinical settings: LGBTQ+ folks, kink /BDSM practitioners, sex workers, POC, poly/open/nontraditional relationship architects, people with disabilities, Burners, self-proclaimed weirdos, and anyone struggling with or exploring identity.
I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means examining challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

Making the decision to see a therapist is not an easy one, and it often takes a fair amount of courage to do so. For those who decide that therapy is appropriate, the outcome can be positive, bringing them more intimacy and fulfillment. Therapy provides the opportunity to improve communication, reduce stress, anxiety and anger, and improve the most important relationship we have....the one we have with ourselves.

Do you often feel “unworthy,” “not enough” or “unloveable?” Are you stuck in shame spirals? You know, those intense self-loathing narratives and overwhelming emotions that erode your ability to live potentially. If this sounds familiar, I’m here to help. I support people who want to live bigger and brighter, but have struggled with self-esteem, consent violations and sexual assault, sexual and gender identity formation, sexual enjoyment and body-image issues. By showing you how to bring compassion to these issues, and the shame spirals they cause, I can help you learn to love yourself, others, and the world around you.

I am passionate about helping through assessment. Assessments are designed to understand learning profiles, as well as to differentiate between issues (such as anxiety and inattention) and document eligibility to accommodations on standardized testing and in school. I can help with full assessments for attention, learning differences, autism, and psychological concerns. Boutique and a-la-carte testing is also available and often indicated for giftedness or as a screening to determine whether further assessment is needed. I have over 20 years of experience and can apply that expertise to devising a battery tailored to your needs.

We all endure relational and environmental challenges that can push us into a state of overwhelm, whether that be at work, home, school, or in our own mind. I believe that working to identify these stressors, then developing strategies and approaches to overcome them with a trusted therapist can lead us to getting the most out of our lives. I enjoy working with a diverse population of clients, and specifically love engaging in therapeutic work around reauthoring the story we tell ourselves and have been told by others. I appreciate helping clients to challenge the narratives we may perceive as true about ourselves and our journey.

Life can get difficult sometimes as we try to juggle the demands of the external world while finding internal balance and harmony. We can carry the pain inflicted on us due to circumstances, or by others. And sometimes it is just a feeling of wanting something more from life than what seems feasible. These experiences can leave us feeling isolated and disconnected from our sense of aliveness, joy and creativity. I like to support my clients on their journey towards creating a more satisfying life, a life that feels wholesome both internally and externally.

Life is a continual process of establishing and reestablishing various identities for ourselves, and sometimes that gets messy or confusing. Sometimes the ways we think and behave become incongruent with what we want and value. Sometimes we have a hard time knowing what we want and value. Sometimes external events or unforeseen challenges disrupt what we envisioned for ourselves and the future. It can feel tricky to navigate issues of identity development, change, grief, loss, anxiety, decision-making, relationship stress, disillusionment, and life transitions alone. But that's what therapy is for.
