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 your relationships.

I am a trained DBT therapist.
I work well with motivated clients. I specialize in using Byron Katie's The Work. I help clients work through childhood trauma and negative patterning. I love watching clients go from overwhelmed to empowered. The Work is excellent for trauma, anxiety and depression. I love clients who are curious about how their mind works. The Work will help you see how the mind can sabotage, and how you can overcome feeling victimized. Clients with an open mind benefit the most. I work equally well with men, women and those who identify as non-binary. I am curious and work well with all spiritual perspectives. I can go anywhere with you.

I am eclectic in my approach; some evidence-based approaches I utilize are: mindfulness, cognitive/ dialectical behavioral therapies, acceptance commitment therapy, narrative therapy and trauma-informed treatment.
Everyone deserves the time and space to lay down their worries, their fears, their past, their pain—and especially their hopes for the future and the change they want to see in their lives. My job is to provide that time and space to my clients, listening attentively, non-judgmentally and empathetically. Once we’ve settled into that space, we can work together to identify your goals and work to achieve them. I am experienced in working with adults and teens with depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD and trauma, mood and thought disorders, substance use, grief, major life transitions and self-esteem. If you're ready, I'm here for you.

Hey, I’m glad you’re here. There are so many issues that can arise throughout our lives, either in our relationships, work, school, or even with ourselves. They can impact how we interact and perceive relationships, our thoughts and emotions, and how we think we fit into the world. These issues can cause us to feel confused, isolated, misunderstood, and unheard. Using empathy, sincerity, compassion, and authenticity, I want to help you unravel these complex issues and understand who you are, what factors impact these issues, and connect you with who you strive to be.

I use evidence-based practices in mindfulness, CBT, and DBT that are grounded in science and shown to be effective.
Sometimes in life, depression and anxiety can feel like they are limiting your options and moving you away from your values. This can create feelings of misdirection and occasional coping in ways that are temporarily helpful but ultimately hurtful. Or it can lead you to unhappy relationships. You may struggle to stop these patterns, even though you know these are not the directions you want your life to go. Maybe you are trying to figure out who you are, trying on different personas and hoping that one will feel right.

I can offer a range of tools (EMDR, DBT , ERP, CBT) and a groundedness in mindfulness and feminist psychotherapy to support your time in therapy.
I provide online video-based therapy for adults who are seeking a respectful, collaborative space to explore their inner experiences. My strengths lie in my attentive witnessing to emotion and body as pathways to unlocking each person’s innate ability to heal themselves, access authenticity, and achieve goals to build towards their vision of a meaningful life. The language of depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, neurodiversity and more may be helpful in addressing day to day challenges or symptoms, though I also see each person as a complex whole of self, relationships, and culture. Whatever brings you to therapy, you are welcome.
