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.

Something has you feeing off... You are a hardworking adult who gives it your all.  You want to feel good, connected, & supported.  But instead, it never feels good enough!  You are exhausted & overwhelmed day & night.  You find yourself constantly running on empty or on edge.  Simple tasks like scheduling and eating feel like chores. 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.

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.

I work with adolescents, and adults. It is my goal to work in partnership with you and the appropriate family and community members to consider all factors which may be influencing your mental health and well being. Together we will design a plan to support your own resilience and innate healing response. My philosophy is more pragmatic, than theoretical. The focus is not merely on the treatment of symptoms of the disorder, but on achieving health, and a renewed sense of purpose, meaning, and joy. I strive to provide responsive and effective assistance with compassion and respect.

Treating individuals who struggle with an eating disorder takes a provider who has extensive experience in the treatment of eating disorders. One who understands the complexity and power of the eating disorder, and the patience and understanding that is needed to support an individual on the challenging journey towards recovery, maintaining recovery, and relapse prevention. Most often, this journey involves not only the client, but their family and support system as well.

I have worked with a variety of clients dealing with depression, anxiety, life transitions, and other life challenges, primarily in community mental health with marginalized and underserved communities. I see people seeking support for many difficulties, including imposter syndrome, self-esteem, boundaries, communication skills, and more. Reducing self-judgment and increasing curiosity about yourself will help you to make better decisions that are aligned with your core values. This will ultimately unhook you from negative thoughts or worries so you are more fully available for all the important things in your life.

Sometimes our relationships with others, or ourselves, get stuck. We may have lost direction, purpose, or meaning, and we become unsure of who we are or who we are in our relationships with other people. We may feel alone, sad, or scared. Some of us become overwhelmed by naming these emotions. Some of us may choose to isolate ourselves and think we must navigate this life alone. In these moments, we are invited to pay attention; when we do, we begin healing. Therapy can be a gift, inviting you to look inward and grow.

Deciding to start therapy is a sign of strength. I believe all people have a natural inclination toward growth and wholeness and sometimes things get in the way. Exploring these obstacles with compassion and courage can help you cultivate the most important relationship of your life -- your relationship with yourself. Whether your challenge is depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationships, addictions or career challenges, all you need to get started is the desire to change.

Rarely does life provide easy answers. If you find yourself wondering about how to move forward and live a fulfilling and meaningful life, it is my aim to help facilitate that wrestling process. I believe that anyone can learn how to ask themselves good questions, to understand themselves at a deeper level, and change their behaviors to be more in line with their true values and goals. Working in multiple settings across many different states has deepened my appreciation for the diversity of experiences that make our lives beautiful and that can also leave us wounded.
