I am privileged to join you on your journey in therapy. Many of us struggle daily with issues like anxiety, stress, depression, anger or just feeling misunderstood. We may feel stuck and ashamed at our inability to just will ourselves into being "better.” My aim is to make a space for you to feel empowered to process and create the change you hope to see in your life. I have experience working with adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, trauma, substance use, and other personal challenges. I have a warm and caring approach with my clients, and I value personal preferences in the therapy experience.

I see motivated individuals and couples of all identities and backgrounds navigating a host of experiences, including but not limited to emotional distress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulty, loss and grief, adjustments to life transitions, self-esteem, fertility issues, trauma, and recovery from substance use or disordered eating.
I believe that within each of us is an innate capacity to move in directions that better suit us. At times, we may feel stuck, having lost touch with what is meaningful and satisfying to us. Or, we may know what we want but are unsure how to initiate change. I provide a non-judgmental, supportive, and curious environment so that people can deeply and safely explore whatever brings them to therapy. My work aims to alleviate painful symptoms and patterns, increase a sense of authenticity and integration, and transform relationships with oneself and others.

I have experience working with a range of diagnoses and topics including depression, anxiety, substance use, intense self criticism, fear of authenticty, PTSD, pregnancy/postpartum, grief, identity formation, family/relational issues, and systemic oppression.
Do you find yourself highly self-aware yet still struggling to cope with emotional challenges? I assist individuals in moving from intellectualization to the integration of difficult emotions using somatic therapy and Internal Family Systems techniques. My goal is to help you develop the resources and tools to transition from thinking to truly feeling. I work well with people who are highly sensitive, struggle with perfectionism, and are curious about exploring the parts of themselves that have been shamed and repressed. I help by facilitating empowerment, teaching skills to relearn emotional safety, and centering one's story.

I work with people who felt stuck while experiencing a challenging moment in life, such as the end of a relationship, job, or living arrangement, personal, generational, and professional changes, gender issues, sexual identity, gender transition, shifts in the relationship with substance use and irresistible urges and behaviors.
As a post modern thinker, I believe that each person has the skills and strengths to create an affirmative narrative, that is not based on negative self-talk or unproductive messages. I like holding conversations that will spark curiosity and explore opportunities to author your new stories.

With a specialty in Art therapy and Substance Use, I am able to foster to all ages and populations.
I don't believe there is an ideal client. I believe everyone is different and needs someone to realize that their experiences are unique and important. A client needs someone who is not going place a label them or follow only the lessions we learned in graduate school. Someone who is going to listen and help guide them to the best solution for them. As your Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), my commitment is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your emotions and experiences. Your well-being is my top priority, and I am honored to support you every step of the way.
