I am here to help those that are looking to explore new ways of working with others or coming into their own and setting boundaries with others. Part of growing is learning how to adapt to the world around us, but it is also about growing in truly loving ourselves and building the world within us. Keeping secrets, feeling like you don't have a voice, and feeling without the power to stand up against those that are mistreating oneself come from feeling like you are not valued or because we were taught growing up to stay silent.

Although I have specialized training in infant/early childhood mental health and couple therapy, I offer therapy to all ages across the lifespan (starting at birth) and in various formats (e.g., individual, couple, family). My goals in treatment are to help folx: (1) better understand themselves; (2) better articulate and express who they are; (3) go about creating a meaningful life with intentionality; (4) understand and self-advocate for their identified needs; and (5) form meaningful connections to the people and environment that they are in.

My approach as a therapist is affirming, collaborative, strengths based, and tailored to each client I work with. I focus on providing a judgment-free zone so that clients have space and support to work on their personal goals. I hope to build a strong relationship with each client because I believe that a strong relationship is important to our ability to work together and helps to strengthen the client's ability to reach their goals. Therapy can sometimes be hard work and often means facing difficult experiences from our past. My hope is that I am providing a space where the client never feels alone in the process.

Money, vacations and good food can make us happy, but how long does this feeling last? Sustainable happiness comes from within, unobstructed by past injuries and external influences. When we operate disconnected from our inner wellbeing, we feel lost, unsatisfied, depressed, anxious...the list goes on. As your therapist, our purpose is to nurture and witness your journey back to your true essence and to facilitate a process that will lead you to a life of wellness and authenticity.

Does it feel like it's you against the world? I work with teens and adults who are having a tough time, acting out feelings in ways that don't get good results and not sure what else to do. You may not be satisfied with your relationships - missing a lot of red flags, or lashing out at people you wish you could feel closer to. Maybe it just doesn't feel like you belong anywhere. First let's find ways for the therapy hour to feel like one place where things can start to work better... feel safer, better understood, gaining skills to manage your emotions, learning how you come off to others and how to get better results.

Your partnership may be suffering and you're wondering why/how the relationship has deteriorated so much over time. Or perhaps you've lost your way on your own path. Wherever you find yourself, there is hope for healing. We often become out of touch with our true nature throughout our lives, but in therapy we can explore our whole selves in order to grow and increase overall well-being. At our cores, we are relational beings who thrive when we feel connected to ourselves and to each other. If you're feeling disconnected and without hope in any area(s) of your life, change is possible and you don't have to navigate the journey alone.

Does it feel like you are your own worst enemy? Maybe you came from a family situation where you always somehow ended up feeling like you were “not good enough.” And now it shows up in your relationships, with you feeling insecure and afraid of being abandoned. In your work life - putting immense pressure on yourself to be “perfect.” And now you’re looking for therapy (and probably putting pressure on yourself to find just the right therapist so you don’t fail horribly at personal growth and confirm all your self-doubts.)

My clients come to therapy seeking some form of healing in their lives and we get to work together to make that a reality. I love being able to hold a non-judgmental, supportive and authentic space for my clients to dive into the depths of their pain and transform it into their personal power. I enjoy intuitively finding the strengths in each of my clients and supporting their healing journeys from a place of collaboration and compassion. It is a gift to provide a safe container for my clients to do their inner work and this is not something I take for granted. We simply do not exist without each other on this journey of life.

I wholeheartedly believe that you are your own expert on your life. Through therapy, my goal is to help you identify and work through the challenges and obstacles that may be standing in the way of gratifying relationships, a satisfying work life, and living the life you wish to lead. Your problems are not what define you as a person. I am interested in helping you clearly express your strengths, hopes, and values, which may have become lost amidst life's struggles. I do my best to create a safe and supportive environment with warmth, respect, kindness, curiosity, and a little humor.

Reaching out for support can be hard, and talking about painful feelings and experiences can be scary. As a therapist, I work collaboratively with you to build a therapy plan that fits your unique needs, strengths, and challenges. I work with individuals (teens & adults), families, and monogamous and non-monogamous relationship constellations. I have particular interest and experience working with the LGBTQIA+ community and with current and former athletes. My work is influenced by psychodynamic, attachment, and social justice theories, as well as contemplative psychology, somatics, and strengths-based approaches.

I believe collaboration and compassion are at the root of a successful therapeutic relationship. I offer an open, non-judgmental space where you can speak honestly about your thoughts and experiences while working towards your personal goals. I use a client-centered and trauma-informed approach and enjoy incorporating mindfulness and somatic exercises to aid in regulating emotions and releasing the stress held in the body. Some areas I am especially passionate about working with are anxiety, life-transitions, gender, sexuality, identity, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, depression, sexual assault, trauma and chronic pain.

I’ll help you develop a better relationship with your body, and find a greater sense of identity and stability in life. Whether you’re struggling with an eating disorder, chronic pain, poor self-image, or difficulty accessing and dealing with your emotions - I’ll help you get more in touch with yourself and find a style of living that feels more comfortable to you. My approach is trauma-informed, so we'll pay careful attention to the ways that difficult past experiences may have closed off some options for how to think, feel, and move.

Adolescence to young adulthood can be some of the most stressful, confusing, and transitional times of our lives. We are exposed to new experiences, social norms, and age-related expectations. Before progress may be sustained, we must feel a sense of safety first: seen, heard, and validation. With that, I am intrigued by the complexities of each person I meet with and will be gentle with your inner world.

No one ever said it (life, relationships, career, school) would be easy but should it be this hard? Taking the first step to explore therapy can be challenging but it can be helpful to obtain support during times of transition or difficulty. If you are still unsure, or even if you are familiar with the therapeutic process, meeting me and getting more information about how I work just takes one session, and a consultation costs you nothing.

Congratulations on taking the first step toward emotional healing and reclaiming your inner power. There is a misconception that something is wrong with us if we need therapy. But the truth is that humans need other humans; we thrive in community and support. Therapy is a place to find support, to go inward and connect with yourself. My framework of practice is eclectic, using CBT, trauma-focused and culturally sensitive interventions, mindfulness and a systems approach—together we can find a more hopeful future & start living more fully in the present moment as you regain agency in your life.
