Unresolved childhood issues provide recurring challenges in adulthood and may show up in the form of sadness, worry, relationship problems, substance abuse or poor self-esteem. For adults abused as children, complex trauma may leave one with panic, obsessive thoughts, self-harming behaviors, or mood disorders. Sometimes individuals are given many diagnoses and medications and end up in therapies that do not resolve their underlying issue. Dissociative processes go unrecognized in many therapies, resulting in treatment that may not resolve the underlying problem, leaving one symptomatic. In my professional experience most individuals change and grow through a successful therapeutic encounter.

I’m a psychodynamic, attachment-based , trauma-informed therapist.
I work with people who have been told they're “too sensitive” or “too much,” feel misunderstood, or feel alienated from the mainstream. I work with non-traditional partners looking for a therapist who "gets it." You are not too intense, too sensitive, or too "out there." The whole of you is welcome with me. I tailor my approach to my clients' needs and goals. I believe human beings are complex individuals with unique stories that inform their present reality, behavior, wants and needs, and feelings.

I pull from attachment-based neuroscience and trauma-informed practices.
I work with individuals, children and teens to strengthen their sense of choice and meaning in their lives. I believe we can emerge more whole when we get curious about the parts of us that seem inglorious. I do not believe in oversimplifying the human condition into "good" or "bad" because there is more truth in the spectrum. I want therapy to be accessible, helpful and grounded in the reality that we live our day-to-day lives outside the therapy office. Good therapy extends beyond one hour a week; good therapy informs how we relate to, engage with and move through the real world.

My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

My approach is integrated and tailored to best meet my client’s needs, and draws on postmodern feminist, attachment-based , humanistic, and cognitive behavioral techniques, with a strengths-based and trauma-informed lens.
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.

When you first got together with your romantic partner, you were happy and in love. Realistically, you imagined there would be hard times, but not as difficult as it's been recently. Now there's tension that's been growing between you. As you both struggle to connect, you know something needs to change. You're tired of fighting, or avoiding each other and feeling misunderstood. You feel it affecting other parts of your life and want to find new ways to communicate and support each other. Your relationship is one of the most important aspects of your life and you're ready to make the necessary changes to work on it together.

There are many reasons that people seek out the support of a psychotherapist. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed, alone, anxious, or disconnected from life, those around you, and yourself. You may be struggling with a particular issue, or find yourself in a chapter of life that has you longing for more. You may be at a point where life feels ok, and yet, there’s a sense that more connection, growth, expression and fulfillment may be possible for you. Whatever it is that has brought you here, welcome. You've taken the first step along the path of healing and moving toward the life that is calling you. Every part of you is welcome here.

I use ACT, DBT, and attachment-based interventions to help you (or your family/partnership/child) move toward healing.
“There’s nothing more healing than choosing to love.” You want connection and closeness, yet you struggle to find it. You feel frustrated that your relationships aren’t fulfilling, or aren't right for you. You're reflective and thoughtful, and yet you don't know how to show up the way you want to in your life, partnership, or family. Perhaps you're struggling with isolation, anxiety, depression, or overwhelm. These are real challenges. Together we can co-create a gentle yet courageous space to explore who you are, what you need, and how to try new things that move you toward what you value most in life and in relationships.

I am here to provide attuned feedback and guidance as you navigate sex and love, anxiety, grief and loss, the ongoing effects of childhood trauma, unlearning codependency and strengthening or softening boundaries. My goal is to help you develop tools for self-awareness, resiliency and intimacy building, and conflict resolution. I believe deeply in the power of healing work, and the great courage it takes to turn inward, to turn toward pain, and to face and love ourselves.
