If you’re looking for a therapist who is basically David Rose meets early-00’s Britney (with a dash of Drag Race & a pinch of recycled WeHo go-go boy,) you’ve clicked on the right profile. But please don’t let my humor undercut the reverence & respect I have for the therapeutic process. Self-empowerment, radical acceptance & authentic human connection will be the cornerstone of our work. I utilize strength-based, affirmative & neuroscientific theory to guide us...but healing doesn't happen via theory. It lies in you -- your hopes, hardships, successes & infinite wisdom. Sometimes we'll laugh. Often, we'll cry. But either way...

It takes immense bravery and courage to approach the big questions in life. I love my work because I am humbled by the resilience, grace and humor I get to witness as people navigate these big questions. Often, the clients I work with have some difficulty seeing these qualities in themselves due to trauma, family patterns, sociocultural stressors. I want to walk with you to explore the questions leading you to seek therapy and explore the strengths that come with asking those questions while helping you develop strategies to take care of yourself.

The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and my goal is to respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and empathy. I believe that lasting change can come from exploring and ultimately freeing ourselves from the underlying causes of current symptoms. I want to work together with you to find ways to gain insight and relief. I work in an open and transparent manner, to help answer any questions or concerns you have along the way.

I help people unwind and unravel the ways in which they get stuck in life. Through looking at how the past is affecting the present and what is actually going on in the present as seen through relationships, we can work as a team to further digest experiences, get to the root of painful patterns, free up choices and help develop a richer internal life.

Navigating through our human journey can be daunting, and everyone can benefit from support along the way. My role as a therapist is to help you gain more insight into the nature of your inner world and a greater perspective of your outer circumstances so that you can become empowered to create the intentional and meaningful life that you truly desire. With compassion and deep presence, we will identify unconscious patterns that are limiting you so that you can gain the awareness and tools needed to create effective changes for yourself.

I offer a genuine, compassionate and respectful relationship with my clients, so they can reach greater self-awareness and insight. My goal is to help each person I work with reach greater satisfaction with the overall quality of their life and attain the personal tools needed to strengthen intimate relationships. I view mental health similarly to physical health: when there's an injury or illness, seeking professional intervention, guidance and support can improve overall wellness.

My philosophy of care is to provide compassion and support to help you achieve your goals. This is accomplished by focusing on what is important to you, where you will be listened to and heard, and for us to share an honest and accurate reflection of your experience. If you've ever felt stuck or lost, or struggle with intense emotions, or have difficulty connecting with them, therapy with me is a powerful way to find yourself again, to restore balance and hope in yourself, and to revive your innate capacity for resilience and joy.

I can help you make changes in your life. I work with adults, couples, families and children to address stress, emotion and identity. I provide a nonjudgmental, safe and supportive space for you to explore stuck and challenging relationships, alter unproductive thoughts and behavior patterns and navigate transitions in your life. While therapy doesn't have all the answers, working together on some of these issues can help you to feel more empowered. I enjoy working with LGBTQ families, those who identify as polyamorous, and women of all shapes and sizes.

Affirmative, interactive, client-centered therapy can help you address depression, anxiety, and destructive behaviors. I serve heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, non-binary, and polyamorous individuals. I practice individual therapy, relationship counseling, and sex therapy. My experience includes working with substance use issues from a harm reduction approach, regardless of whether my client's goal is abstinence or substance use management. I love to help people address trauma, improve communication, take control of their lives, gain sexual confidence, and get their needs met.

My practice is currently overbooked; incredibly limited availability Fall 2022. Thank you. Research indicates that the most important factor in psychotherapy may be the alliance between client and therapist. It makes sense that any individual, couple or family would reflect heavily on this aspect of their search. Initial consultations are about providing a uniquely safe, private space for the client(s) to share thoughts, questions, feelings or concerns.

Through a powerful process of inner evolution, I show you how to eliminate self-sabotage *permanently* so you can experience the confidence, freedom, and success you desire. Most people spend their lives struggling unnecessarily, never realizing that the struggle is self-created. They are working against themselves, frustrated, lonely, and unable to move past the "glass ceiling" that’s holding them back. When in reality, one simple inner shift can shatter it and launch them forward into effortless success. I specialize in helping you to make that essential inner shift.

Anxiety is something you’ve struggled with for a long time. While you seem to be functioning OK on the outside, inside you’re dealing with feelings of dread, catastrophic thoughts that you can’t seem to stop, and constantly feeling like you need to plan for what could go wrong. The good news is that therapy can help you struggle less with anxiety. You and I will work together to help you relate to anxiety more effectively and focus on building a full and vital life.

Perhaps your relationships, career, or creative pursuits are not going as you would like. Challenges around identity and sense of self may be plaguing you. You may feel bogged down by feeling frustrated, unmotivated, anxious, overwhelmed, guilty, ashamed, or sad. Whatever your struggles, together we can help you better understand what’s going on and what may be getting in the way of change. I take as a basic premise that you are more than a collection of symptoms or a problem to be fixed and believe that you and what troubles you deserve our full attention and thorough exploration with the goal of long-term sustainable growth.

Stress, burnout, and feeling overwhelmed by work or personal relationships. Are you struggling in very demanding jobs, overwhelmed by current events, or difficult transitions in your personal life? Maybe you want to change, but don’t quite know what’s holding you back or how to do it. It may be a feeling in the pit of your stomach when you wake up, or getting worn down by the relentless self-criticism. Maybe you don't feel understood by others and feel judged or mistreated. I understand how hard and impossible it can all seem, but it’s not too late to start to feel better. I help people break out of patterns that hold them back.

Much of modern and contemporary philosophy contends that modern life is damaged life. Theodor Adorno tells us that this life is wrong and cannot be lived rightly, while Walter Benjamin observes that, in terms of our structures of feeling and knowing the world, “we have become impoverished”. Adorno and Max Horkheimer suggest that magic died long ago. Wrong life, poverty of experience, and the death of magic: how then can we live? This question animates my thought as psychotherapist and educator. Over two decades of clinical practice have taught me that damaged life can be beautiful life, capable of the most radical kind of joy.
