I am a white-bodied, Queer therapist.
I can help you if you are struggling with depression, anxiety, loss, work stress, parenting and much more. My approach to therapy draws from modalities such as art therapy and mindfulness based practices, Health at Every Size, and trauma informed practice. I understand that sometimes it is difficult to talk about one's emotions. However, even without words, it's often helpful to express those feelings through other mediums. I also help clients better understand their internal thought patterns, their motivations to make healthy changes in their lives, and their daily attentional patterns.

Hello! I am a queer , cisfemale, bilingual German-American Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. In session, I use a narrative frame to collaboratively learn about your history. My style has been described as warm, high-energy, and sensitive. I have experience working with a wide range of ages from young people through older adults. I am comfortable working with people who are neurodiverse as well as those who are interested in exploring gender identities. As a clinician, I continually learn about the impact of my privileged identities and how to communicate in ways that do not reinforce systems of oppression.

No one comes to a therapist because they need a lecture. You're here because you need a partner on your personal journey to healing. Good therapy is an invitation into a dialogue, not a monologue where someone "thera-splains" yourself to you. It's my passion to help my clients with self-esteem, depression, anxiety, parenting and learning to find enjoyment in daily life. I use LGBTQIA + affirming, social justice-oriented, trauma-informed, and strengths-based approaches to support my clients. My areas of expertise include transitions, depression/anxiety and positive parenting (including how to accept and support your LGBTQIA + child).

Most of us will find ourselves struggling at some point. Maybe you are suffering from crushing depression or debilitating anxiety or drowning in waves of grief. Maybe you need help navigating a life transition or important relationship. Some may long to heal past hurts. Or perhaps you are simply overwhelmed by life’s many stressors. It is often at these times that we seek out therapy.

I support my clients to cultivate awareness and capacity to unwind from unhealthy thought and behavior patterns. I do this by drawing on their innate strengths and resilience. Collaboratively we learn to navigate challenging emotions and life transitions to rediscover aliveness, power, joy, purpose, care and a sense of connection. I bring dynamic qualities including curiosity, creativity and warmth into sessions for growth towards wholeness. My approach is guided by mindful awareness, honest inquiry and deep compassion. I am grounded in social justice, recognizing how social-historical factors impact well-being. I believe healing is a journey towards liberation.

Are you feeling anxious, stretched thin, and burnt out? Perhaps on the outside you're generous and caring, always anticipating the needs of others, but on the inside you’re overwhelmed and resentful. In therapy, you’ll explore the experiences that are causing you emotional pain. Maybe a parent or someone in your life has been oblivious to your needs, or holds their love conditionally, leaving you feeling worn out, raw, and defenseless. Although it can be challenging, learning to slow down, tune in to your feelings, and set appropriate boundaries is essential for your wellbeing.

Professionally, I have an LGBT -affirmative emphasis and I have also done policy work for QTPoCs.
I believe we are all whole but sometimes life circumstances, the way we grew up, the way we are treated by society/systems based on our identities, etc. can cloud the way in which we see ourselves or which tools we have access to. I specialize in working with clients who have experienced complex trauma due to race, gender, sexual orientation, abuse, violence, historical events and poverty. My hope is to help create more tools, help unpack the trauma, identify YOUR strengths and your understanding of yourself and help you navigate the world in a way that feels true to YOU.
