As a fat, queer, neurodivergent disruptor of societal norms and systems, I hold a strength-based attachment focused framework that values and celebrates all genders, sexualities, bodies, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, family structures, religions, and socio-economic locations. I see these intersectionalities as a beautiful tapestry of personal empowerments which can become the foundation from which we work collectively to identify, address and dismantle systems of oppression. I believe humans shouldn’t be pathologized in a society designed to keep people sick and stuck.

You want to live the life you imagined for yourself; however, you find that self-criticism, painful past experiences, & negative feedback from others are taking up most of the space in your head. Your mental & physical energy are drained, leaving you feeling stuck and unmotivated. Your joy & hope are held captive & you find yourself in survival mode doing just what it takes to get through the day. You look at others & long for the success, confidence, & meaningful relationships that they seem to have mastered. You've tried many things (maybe even other therapists) & haven't achieved lasting change.

Could your trauma experiences be leaving you with feeling the pressure to be perfect all the time, making sure everyone around you is happy and "good", and you’re physically exhausted from it? Unhealed trauma can result in you second guessing yourself and your decisions, struggling to identify your emotions, finding it hard to rely on others, and feeling like you’re just not good enough. Does this resonate with you? I work with driven, people-pleasing women trauma survivors eager for lasting change who are struggling with the lingering effects of trauma, subsequent relationship anxiety, and painful overwhelm in their body.

Life, work, and community are intertwined. I am open to those who may be finding it difficult to show up, or who are considering a change in various areas of life. ​While there is much unease in the world outside, talking it out with a supportive audience can be a way to feel more ease within. Together we can explore, reflect, learn and then re-write the story. I believe that it’s important to honor the truth that life can be hard. And that we may find hope in the moment while walking alongside a supportive team.

I have been working in mental health for nearly 30 years. I developed a holistic psychology practice over 20 years ago to help my clients get the best results. Holistic means treating the whole person; mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of someone's life to find the root cause of symptoms. I am also a clinical nutritionist focusing on helping to educate about detox and balance brain chemistry with vitamins, minerals and amino acids and eating for optimal health. I focus on root cause of symptoms, doing progressive trauma interventions. Trauma is about times in your life in which your nervous system becomes dysregulated.
