Sometimes life can be like a roller coaster riding. One minute it seems like you are going up to the top of the world. Another minute you feel like you are plunging down not knowing if there will be an end to it. This can be scary and overwhelming. It is my passion to help people move from an anxious, depressed or troubled state to one that has hope and acceptance. I believe in emotional, physical, and spiritual recovery. I work with individuals, groups, couples, and adolescents.

Most of us were taught that gender is binary, but thankfully we know that is not true! Gender is fluid, a spectrum that encompasses identities such as gender non-conforming, genderqueer, & agender. Individuals within the trans & non-binary community grapple with the fear of embracing their authentic selves, contending with societal & familial pressures. However, we now find ourselves in a time where concealing our trans and non-binary identities is unsustainable. Everyone exploring their gender identity deserves a safe, empathetic space to navigate the impacts of gender-phobia & the aftermath it leaves behind. Trans is beautiful!

There is great value in asking for help. It tells me you have the desire to live a more authentic life, to develop the skills to manage its ups and downs more effectively, and to deepen connection- within the self and with the world around you. If you find yourself feeling defeated, or caught in a cycle that is not serving you, I invite you to engage in this process with me. Together, we will work to untangle what has gotten in the way of living your best life so that you can begin to do so.

I am profoundly aware of the tremendous courage it takes to seek help. Particularly, when you are coming from a life you have often been forced to endure heavily weighed upon by anxiety, trauma, depression, and addiction. This deeply rooted awareness of this pain is why I first entered the field of psychology and has successfully guided my work in assisting my clients to overcome their many barriers and difficulties. My approach offers the skills and self-awareness needed to establish the capacity towards supporting you to reach the kind of life you imagined possible.

It is my goal to help you develop strategies and skills that will directly affect the way that you relate to the world around you. A good therapist is like a personal trainer at the gym - someone that pushes you further than you would ever push yourself. Improving your quality of life is my number one priority.

Seeking therapy can feel daunting. Even when we know something has to change, it can feel more comfortable to stick with old habits. Clients are often surprised to hear me say - we keep "bad" habits for good reasons. We develop patterns to feel safe when we lack internal or outside supports to help us feel grounded, connected, accomplished, or hopeful. I support clients to increase their awareness of their own patterns, perceptions, reactions, learned behaviors, and true desires, so they have more choice in how they respond to people and situations and can take steps to build better relationships and more fulfilling lives.

A lifelong student and teacher of the psychological and spiritual life, I am significantly influenced by the writings of psychologist Carl Jung and others, as well as spiritual teachers of various faiths. I generally work with clients from a combination of psychological modalities with one direction in mind - allowing the needs of the client to direct the way. Deeper work may also be necessary to unearth old wounds and resolve unhealthy patterns of behavior. I am also skilled in helping those who are transitioning through changes in career, life, and relationships.
