"I wholeheartedly believe that the wounding that happens in relationship can be healed in relationship. Therapy with me is relational, humanistic, empathic, body-oriented, mindful and experiential. I will support you as you build and discover what's most meaningful to you and surrender that which no longer serves you. Together we can walk into the scary questions. We can strengthen your access to the wise observer and guide that already exists within you. By bringing compassion and curiosity to all of your different parts, we can rediscover what home means to you, together. I work well with queer youth, couples and families. "

"I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it."

"As a trauma survivor, the Coronavirus Pandemic is surely bringing up lots of grief, fear, sadness, and stress. After experiencing trauma, it can feel like nothing makes sense. Your body is reacting with anxiety, exhaustion, and pain (or feeling nothing at all). You feel like everyone has an idea how you ‘should’ act. You might even feel like you have to offer ‘proof’ by telling your story or letting others see your pain. There may be a part of you that wonders if it’s your fault (believe me, it's not). You wish you could just forget it and feel good again. You feel so helpless, vulnerable, unsafe. *ONLINE AVAILABILITY*"

In living though a global crisis, finding our ground and our truth is more critical than ever. Learning about the source of anxiety or deep feelings of sadness; sorting through relational issues such as a need for better boundaries; bringing awareness to coping mechanisms that aren't working anymore (substance use, over eating, compulsive shopping) - these are a few of the ways therapy can help you gain more balance and well-being in your life - even during this unprecedented time."
