Ease. Connection. Purpose. Joy. These are the birthright of every human. When they’re hard to find, therapy can help. I have seen again and again that even the deepest wounds and most entrenched stagnation can give way—with the right kinds of skilled support—to growth, transformation, and flourishing. Whether you struggle with depression, anxiety, burnout, addiction, PTSD, relational conflict, self-doubt, or just want to live with more vitality and authenticity, I would be honored to accompany you in your journey. I particularly love assisting social justice leaders to embody the wellness they strive to make possible for others.

We are constantly growing and changing. Throughout stages in our lives, transitions in our states, or shifts in our relationships we can be overtaken with different emotions. Sometimes these emotions can be hard to make sense of, hard to sift through, or hard to sit with. My intention is to be your support as your work through problematic areas in your life to live a more meaningful and abundant life. Through my humanistic perspective, I offer a relaxed and warm approach to therapy; thusly, I commit to remain present with my clients and customize the therapy that meets your unique needs.

My approach to therapy is holistic and addresses mind, body, and spirit as essential, interwoven aspects of who we are. Through my years of practice, I've learned to integrate various somatic and mindfulness modalities into sessions because they go beyond strictly talk therapy in helping calm the nervous system, reduce the effects of trauma and overwhelm, foster new perspectives, and create a healthier relationship with the body. The result is greater resilience, self-compassion, fulfillment, empowerment, and joy. EFT Tapping and Embodied Mindfulness are two modalities that I use & teach so that clients have tools to use at home.

There are points in life where you may ask yourself if the path you're on is leading you where you need to be going. You may be asking yourself questions like: "Is this the best I can expect from my marriage?" "Is this what I'm supposed to be doing with my life?" "Is the work I'm doing the work I was born to be doing?" I will work with you both to get answers to these questions and to more fully accept the answers you receive.

My purpose as a therapist is to help clients feel less alone in their experiences and learn tools to live a life with more ease, insight, and awareness. I support children, teens, adolescents, and young adults in having a space to feel seen, gain deeper self-awareness, implement coping strategies and reach attainable goals to live life more fully. As a client myself, I aim to normalize the process of therapy and reduce the stigma around receiving mental health support. I acknowledge the bravery and courage it takes to start therapy and hold deep respect for those investing in this process.

You can’t even enjoy a night out if it happens at all.  You get along with others, and so many people and communities rely on you. And yet, you feel like you don’t belong, or those you love don’t really see you. Let’s not even start with our society and world.
