Folks come to therapy for a variety of reasons that all boil down to change, whether they're struggling to handle it or make it. Many of my clients' lives don't align with societal norms, either intentionally coloring outside the lines or struggling to fit in. Folks may find themselves overwhelmed, dealing with big emotions, the effects of complex or single-event trauma, complex medical issues, or chronic pain. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ - including trans kids and their families, disabled, and neurodiverse populations. I like to work with individuals, couples, polycules, and families of all shapes and sizes.

You feel isolated, misunderstood...lonely. You’ve been told you’re “too much,” “too sensitive,” or “intense.” You feel frozen in profound suffering. You feel that no one has seen the real you and have a sense that there are parts of yourself that maybe you haven’t seen. Hiding yourself has become unbearable, but you don’t know where to start or who to go to for help making sense of your complex inner world and experiences. We can be deeply wounded in relationships, past and current, but it is also in relationships that we find healing.

If you are seeking therapy there may be some good reasons that I would be a good fit. You may have tried many different methods of healing but find that there are places that you have not yet been able to reach. These may be places that are very overt or hidden from view. They may be longstanding or new, but they are causing confusion and suffering at this time. These issues may involve gender or sexuality, complex grief, or longstanding trauma. Through your voice and your inner and outer world, I work interactively and empathically with you to tend to the places in need.

I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means examining challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

Right now, you are all the ages you have ever been. Your younger self may have been judged, in pain, & so alone that it feels unbearable. These misunderstood emotions can make it a struggle to put words to your experience. I’m here to be with you during this process of revealing those hidden parts—leaving behind what no longer serves you. Trauma-informed holistic therapy can free us from our self-limiting beliefs to move us into an embodied experience of loving ourselves. Together, we will explore how your unique temperament & experiences have shaped you. It's your birthright to exist & to create a purposeful life.

Your relationship with yourself is key to how happy you are at home, at work, and beyond. I collaborate one-on-one with clients to cultivate self-compassion and heal from old wounds so they can move from surviving to thriving. I act as a guide and sounding board, with a commitment to respecting each individual as the expert on their own experience. As a queer, genderfluid therapist and activist, I support partners in monogamous and consensual nonmonogamous relationships, and I’m committed to honoring and uplifting the lived experiences of people from underrepresented racial backgrounds, abilities, genders, and sexualities.

U.S. society at large makes it easy to feel like we're not enough; late stage capitalism thrives off of our anxiety and disconnection. I am here to remind you of what you already know but might have forgotten: you are enough. Indeed, there's enough of everything for all of us. Many clients find their way to me because they want to work through challenges related to their identity, acculturation, sexuality, gender expression, relationship formation, and early traumas. My identities as a queer, non-monogamous, sex- and kink-positive, immigrant woman tend to attract potential clients who share some of these positionalities.

My main goal with providing therapy is for you to become free from the fears and secrets that might have brought you in. Many of us feel tormented by our anxieties and catastrophic thinking, which inevitably interferes with our relationships and ability to be the person we wish. Using an insight-oriented approach, I work with children and adults who often feel impending doom or have had a major trauma, such as early abandonment or sexual abuse in their life. I also see couples who struggle with common goals and intimacy.

Some people come to therapy in the midst of present life changes and many approach it addressing their past. Your history and present experience - along with my training & expertise - can unlock invaluable information about you. You might be interested in making changes in relationships, with substances or moods, or by managing critical self talk. I use evidence-based behavioral interventions, like tracking anxious thinking patterns, and more expansive theoretical orientations, like looking at relational patterns past & present, to help thread parts of oneself together and decrease distress.

ASSERTIVENESS COACHING: GET WHAT YOU WANT AND IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS Most of us don't like conflict. Some of us worry that by expressing our true feelings, we will be seen as selfish or confrontational. Fearing rejection, we push our needs aside, but are disappointed when we don't get what we want. This cycle can lead to withdrawal, resentment, anger, and depression. Being assertive is often confused with self-centeredness and aggression. Learning the difference can pave the way to greater self expression and life satisfaction.

Are you wanting to feel better once and for all? Maybe you can't move on from the past or you're worried about your future. If anxiety, panic, or even depression is stealing your joy, I get it. If traditional talk therapy hasn't helped you feel better, it's time to try a new approach to heal at the source of your pain. For 12 years I have refined my approach through professional training and experience in Relational-gestalt therapy and Brainspotting (derived from EMDR) while centering social justice and trauma-informed care.
