I have served women, men, the LGBTQ community and families with substance abuse problems to have healthier lives.
Do you feel unsatisfied and unhappy with where you are? Does your substance use stop you from realizing the life you deserve? Have you hit a point in your life where it’s getting harder and harder to hold it all together? Do you say “everything is fine” just to keep people away? Do you minimize or ignore the harm alcohol or other drugs do to you? Can you imagine what it would be like if the weight was lifted? It will take courage for you to decide that you need help. By doing so you will create a life that you feel is worth living. A life where you are confident, fulfill your needs, and gain control over your life.

I have had the privilege of working one on one with adolescents and adults navigating issues of loss, grief, depression, anxiety, LGBTQ , midlife changes, and differing communication styles.
Hi! If I have learned one thing in life it's that change is difficult, particularly without help. I offer the opportunity to work collaboratively through what's keeping you from living the life you always thought you would have. Therapy can help one let go of patterns and beliefs, often subconscious, that aren't working. And changing our assumptions about the world and improving our relationships can result in profoundly positive changes and a life worth embracing! I look forward to helping you realize those changes.

I work with adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, LGBTQ + concerns, disassociation and trauma, and with couples and families facing conflicted relationships.
Our experiences form an unconscious ‘blueprint’, which shapes our beliefs and aspirations, but also the fears and challenges we face. Gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and the patterns that run your life allows you the freedom to make new choices and respond differently, transforming your relationships with yourself and others. In our work together, I will support you on your journey towards self-awareness that can lead to a profound change. My therapeutic approach is warm, direct and authentic. I believe feeling safe, accepted and heard are all critical elements for therapy to succeed.

I am LGBTQIA affirming, Kink Aware, and Poly Friendly.
Are you an adult 18-30 who is struggling with life? Is life treating you pretty freaking crappy about now? College giving you anxiety? Work making you angry? Are you just bloody tired? What about the masks, covid, and zoom fatigue? Over it! Are you depressed, lonely, isolated, and feel like you have been watching too many twitch streams just so you can have some sort of interaction with people? Have you taken too forgetting that showers are a "thing" that we must do so we don't smell up the house? Did you have to move back home with parents who have decided you are 13 yrs old again? Do you just want to scream? Call me, let's talk!

I also have insight about clients who identify in the LGBTQ community, Asian-American and first-generation experiences (intersections of identity).
My clients are engaged in the process of change. They're interested in exploring action steps in addressing depression or anxiety, improving relationships in their lives, or getting a better understanding of what they want. Clients are from different cultural backgrounds and experiences that have been challenging such as coming from difficult childhoods. They are resilient and seek to learn new ways of coping as they continue to grow. I also provide Accelerated Resolution Therapy for the treatment of trauma.

I am LGBTQIA + affirming, including those who identify along non-binary, bi/pansexual and asexual spectrums.
Are you having exaggerated responses to everyday life stressors, or feeling paralyzed to make change? It’s possible you’re responding from old survival mechanisms that no longer serve you. With Somatic and EMDR therapy, traumatic memories that may be "stuck" in your nervous system can be addressed and resolved, so they no longer block your life potential. Are you struggling with identity and how you fit in? Seeking more purpose and meaning in your life and career? Struggling to communicate and hold healthy boundaries in your relationships? I'm here to understand and support you on your journey to discovering your authentic self.

Experiences including trauma, harmful relationships, adoption, difficult childhoods, anxiety, depression, and the impact of systematic marginalization can create difficulty in getting through the day. We feel disconnected from ourselves and others, out of control, irritable, and helpless. It can show up in our thoughts racing or feeling overwhelming, feeling badly about ourselves, and having low motivation or drive to find meaning in our lives. These can become "default" patterns in response to our experiences and stressors and can feel difficult or impossible to interrupt the patterns on our own, but you're not alone.

I specialize in working with adults who have a wide spectrum of mental health needs and help clients identify feelings that have led to self-destructive thoughts or behaviors. I work using a mix of humor, empathy, compassion, and a great deal of respect for my clients. This is important because change is difficult and someone wanting to change for the better has already taken the first step in that direction. Currently accepting California residents only.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.
