Are you curious who you can trust with your fears and worries, or your hopes and dreams? Have you tried quitting/cutting back on those negative coping skills but seem to keep falling back into your old patterns? You might be wondering if there's someone out there who can celebrate you for being a little "outside the box". Maybe you’re in a consensual non-monogamous relationship, you identify as LBGTQIA2+ or you’re considering transitioning your gender or sexual orientation and you're wondering who you can trust to be affirming and knowledgeable. You deserve to be truly seen and celebrated for everything you bring to this world.

I am a passionate nature enthusiast and licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT). I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families who are interested in furthering their development and reaching a deeper understanding of their own, authentic being. I believe that we are more than our emotions and behaviors–we are complex people that require introspection and the honor of a unique and individualized path to healing. Through the exploration of stories and patterns (both current and past), I assist clients in coming into a deeper understanding and ease with the self.

Are you finding career success but stumbling when it comes to other important areas of life like self-care and relationships? Do you struggle to enjoy your accomplishments, even when friends and family say you’re doing well? Adulting can be really hard. Concern around whether you're "doing it right" can contribute to feelings of being an imposter and prevent you from really savoring the wins you have in life.

My passion is in couples work, trauma processing, and the intersection of the two. These relational challenges profoundly impact many aspects of life, from our ability to focus to our happiness and contentment in life. The good news is that it doesn't have to be like this, you can reconnect with yourself and the ones you love. While I teach communication skills and coping strategies to help you feel stabilized, I also believe in the power of exploring oneself deeply to create lasting change.

Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, no matter what you do? You may be fed up with having anxiety or panic attacks, feeling like you’re always getting triggered, or feeling like you are no longer yourself. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to find tools to feel calm, stable, and at ease. You’re ready to understand why you feel the way you do. Most of all, you’re ready to reclaim your life.

Do you ever find yourself asking, "Why can't I just get my life together, get along with people like everyone else?" "Am I the crazy one?" How about "I'm tired of feeling misunderstood, walked all over, like I can't do anything right." It's easy to feel stuck and alone when struggling in life and relationships, as if you're "too emotional" and destined for a lonely and shameful life. Many opinions about what you're doing wrong and recommendations of how to fix discourage you, leaving you feeling even more flawed and confused than before. Most importantly, do you find yourself feeling sad and terrified that nobody will EVER get you?
