) •You will be supported if you are LGBTQ +.
Hey! You’ve likely arrived here because you’ve been in a dark place and might be ready for a change. You’re tired of carrying around the burden of your trauma, anxiety, or the weight of your substance use or secret addiction. Or you’re concerned about a loved one’s unhealthy behaviors. Maybe you feel ashamed and alone but the fear of being judged is finally being outweighed by the possibility that things could be better. Life is really hard, but we can do hard things with support. How I can help: •We can collaborate if you have ever had substance use concerns or addictive behaviors - past or present, in recovery or ongoing.

I am an ally of LGBTQIA + folx and with me you won't need to take time to educate me about your community.
I am a Certified EMDR trauma therapist and am passionate about helping people let go of the pain of the past, live more fully in the present and develop hope for the future. When you've grown up in a chaotic, dysfunctional or neglectful household it can be really hard to move beyond your past without help. This is especially true if you struggle with any kind of dissociation. Its' not that your weak or unwilling, it's that you don't yet have the tools and the help to do so. As an intersectional feminist, I recognize and will respect all aspects of your identity and work to minimize any effects of my privilege on the therapy.

I am also experienced in working with LGBTQ + and inter-racial couples which requires sensitivity to each partner’s unique cultural background, life experience, and sexuality.
I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in couple relationship issues and have many years of extensive training and direct experience working with individuals and couples in their emotional pain. I primarily work with distressed individuals and couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is an evidence-based treatment that focuses on identifying and changing ineffective interactive patterns, understanding how partners get triggered by each other's responses, identifying unmet needs, and helping both partners access vulnerable/difficult emotions that are usually underlying their frustration and anger.

As a proud Ally, I am LGBTQIA + affirming and passionate about helping to build resilience and a sense of authenticity for those exploring or questioning their sexuality or gender.
Sometimes life experiences leave us feeling overwhelmed or hopeless and we find that the ways we usually cope are not helping. Sometimes our personal journey involves difficult, seemingly impossible crises or losses. Sometimes we try to manage emotions with activities that help us feel better for a short time but then the cost starts to outweigh the benefits. I believe we all go through times like this when we are tired of struggling. The path towards recovering from these experiences seems more doable when we are able to find a renewed motivation and clear goals towards change.

My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and find more helpful ways of living. I offer a collaborative and client-centered approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs and cultural backgrounds to help attain the personal growth you're striving for. Your life experiences and history contribute to your individual uniqueness. Sometimes it's helpful if your therapist has a base knowledge of aspects of your culture so you don't have to explain everything. Between cultural elements of the LGBTQ community, to intersectionality experiences for persons of color, my background and training aid in this understanding.

Currently accepting clients by referral only. I believe that there is no such thing as a bad person. I believe that all humans are fundamentally good and are deserving of love, kindness, and respect. My work as a therapist is grounded in those beliefs. I also believe that as humans, it is our job to screw up, to get stuck, and to experience discomfort, pain, loneliness, sadness, and grief. I believe that really good people can make really bad decisions and get stuck. Those problems in no way disqualify someone from being loved, treated with kindness, and held in respect.

My passion is for people and their relationships. Eastern thought teaches us that pain is inevitable, suffering is optional; life and relationships have the ability to create struggles in everyday life that creates pain, but it is through our attitudes, behaviors, and meaning that we place ourselves in situations where we create our own suffering. By helping people find the tools to cultivate their unique skills, I believe we can find the hope and fulfillment to overcome our suffering. My focus is on individuals and couples as they search for connection, intimacy, love and success.
