I believe there is a solution to every "problem." I am solution focused and look at the individual as a complete human being with everything needed to be happy and successful right inside. I operate from a wellness model rather than a disease model. Being an adult means taking accountability for what does not benefit one under one's own skin. I take a humanistic, cognitive approach focusing on skills grounded in mindfulness and self-observation. With new insights and skills, we can operate from love instead of fear, from the present moment instead of childhood belief systems, with compassion instead of defenses and blame.

In this moment you feel lost, disconnected from your path/career, and unsure how to find self-fulfillment, while feeling the weight and intense expectations of others. You know you need help and don't know where to turn. Explaining how lost you feel to others around you, will make you more vulnerable than you wish to feel. You feel alone and know that something has to change. The stress of school and/or work is insurmountable, sharing these feelings with friends and family is not possible. Your stress causes intense pressure and anxiety which is affecting every aspect of your life.

I help first responders overcome symptoms of PTSD, such as anger, anxiety, and depression, so they can live a life connected to themselves and to community. Working as a first responder can be a stressful, painful experience. It can leave people feeling isolated and disconnected from their family, community, and themselves. It can sometimes feel like confronting the source of anxiety and anger is more than you can handle in a profession and a culture that require you to be strong. The fear of it being out of your control can be overwhelming. Yet the freedom, connection, and growth that result from addressing your trauma are life-

Therapy should be viewed as a safe space to explore, discover your truth, and better understand your basic needs. Our greatest gift to ourselves is unlearning the negative patterns we’ve been taught and reestablishing healthier patterns. We can’t change our past experiences or forget them; however, we can learn to make peace through acceptance. As a culturally humble therapist, my goal is to support you on your journey of discovery. I have a specialty and training in working with couples, family relational issues, autism spectrum disorders, and trauma-informed care.

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.

I am not currently accepting new clients! I am currently out for medical leave. I have had the privilege of working with a diverse set of clients with a wide range of backgrounds and needs. I offer a supportive space that counters the normativity within this culture that often is oppressive to people based on their identities. I recognize that what healing journey one person, relationship or family may need may be different than another and help to support you on that journey. In addition to being neurodivergent and transgender myself, I have also supported folks who are neurodivergent, queer and/or plural.
