When people first present to my office, they have a range of significant concerns. It might be medical, school or work related or family dynamics, and, of course, life stressors. Through our work together you will build new awareness and tools. Human beings naturally trend toward health when they are able to build self inquiry, self awareness, and compassionate connection. The goal is to thrive.

I am inspired by clients who decide they want to grow, change, or improve their quality of life. I bring the same drive toward health and the pursuit of happiness. I feel clients have often suffered more than enough, but often don't know how their life or circumstances could feel different. Relationship, through therapy, shows the way.

Have you ever heard of the term Tabula Rasa? The term Tabula Rasa explains that we as individuals are born with a “blank slate” and the people, relationships, and experiences around us paint the characteristics of who we become. The beauty of this theory is that negative and traumatic experiences can be painted over with new insights, personal growth, and emotional development. I also utilize modern tools in therapy and personal assignments such as listening to podcast episodes, watching documentaries, or providing relevant reading material if interested. I prefer to work with adults and older teenagers.

I look forward to connecting with you in a safe and healthy way. I believe you have everything within you to heal and will assist in exploring how trauma shaped your world through attachment or otherwise. We are all wired for connection; together we will mindfully investigate how you join your world presently in order to choose who and how you want to be. I welcome reprocessing any trauma that continues to prevent you from fully living. I enjoy working with individuals (children, tweens, teens and adults), couples and families as needed in support of individuals or couples.

My ideal client has some insight and understands that therapy is work. It's not just about having me (or anyone else) solve their problems -- it's something that has to be done jointly. They also need to be willing to listen and change.

Hello! I’m so glad you found me. My approach to therapy is to engage the whole person in order to integrate the mind and body. Movement in therapy can range from focusing on breath to self-lead movement expression, and can be used with any age and ability. Artistic expression is used to deepen the therapeutic work through the creative process. I view my clients holistically and utilize the knowledge I gain regarding their life history and their social atmosphere to guide them in therapy. I work collaboratively with my clients to make meaningful change, respecting my clients’ individuality and autonomy.

Are you afraid, confused, or struggling with your relationships? I work with client(s) dealing with interpersonal issues and communication challenges. It may be a husband and wife re-defining their roles with life changes, or an individual considering a career change. The problem often reveals itself at the surface when arguing and verbal conflict ensue, but the source of the problem needs a deeper adjustment, such as adjusting roles or providing more support for a family member. Regardless, clear communication usually allows the individual, couple, or family to achieve the goal of collaboration and compromise.

As a Black, queer clinician, I have witnessed the mental health challenges that can arise while existing in environments that do not affirm our identities. My practice is dedicated to uplifting the lives and experiences of historically marginalized communities, including Black and Indigenous People of Color and the LGBTQ+ community. My aim is to promote resilience, empowerment, and authenticity by cultivating an affirmative therapeutic relationship. My work draws from a trauma-informed, intersectional, client-centered framework with the goal of co-creating a supportive container for healing and self-exploration.

Relationships make the world go round. Do you struggle in any of your relationships; work, friends, family, significant other or children? How does your relationship with others affect how you feel about yourself, how you relate to others, how you trust them? Are you the parent that you thought you would be? Do your relationships stop you from going after the things you dream about? Focusing on how you participate in relationships; together we can look at how past relationships and experiences affect current circumstances, how substance abuse affects personal and familial relationships, co-dependency and more.

The most important person in the therapy session is you. The most mysterious person in the therapy session is you. And the most powerful insight will eventually come from you. You may feel stuck, angry, lonely, confused, hopeless or numb. Maybe you feel too much? Perhaps you're losing hours on tik tok or porn sites? you dissociate, sleep too much; can't sleep. It's okay to reach out. Everyone wants connection, everyone needs connection. Therapy can help you find ways to connect.

These are trying times. Stress takes up residence in our nervous systems and wreaks havoc on our careers, our relationships and our bodies. It doesn’t disappear simply by ignoring it or by gritting our teeth and trudging stoically down the same stressful path. So, whether you are struggling with burnout, depression, anxiety, work/life balance, grief/bereavement or the responsibility of leadership, you do not have to carry the burden alone. One of the kindest things you can do for yourself is seek support. Give yourself the gift of good therapy—you are worth the investment.

All relationships are hard, intimate relationships even more so. So many unmet needs, unrecognized wants, can make you feel lost and alone. You just can't keep going like this! The fights are ugly, or they don't happen at all. Living at the speed of life, you have drifted apart and don't know how to bring it back together. Maybe it is just feeling disconnected, maybe it was an affair. You just know that you need help to make it better, to make it what you had dreamed it would be. The good news is that you don't have to do it alone. Tenderness and passion are just around the corner!
