"After experiencing sexual trauma, it can feel like nothing makes sense. Your body is reacting with anxiety, exhaustion, and pain (or feeling nothing at all). You feel like everyone has an idea how you ‘should’ act. You might even feel like you have to offer ‘proof’ by telling your story or letting others see your pain. There may be a part of you that wonders if it’s your fault (believe me, it's not). You wish you could just forget it and feel good again. You feel so helpless, vulnerable, unsafe. "

"Aside from my vast array of clinical experience working with clients from various age groups, cultural identities, personal/professional backgrounds, presenting problems, and seasons of life, I am a relational therapist who values and appreciates the process of therapy. It is in the sacred space therapy upholds that clients learn to triumph out of moments of vulnerability, and to celebrate the small steps forward in spite of potential setbacks or apparent standstill. One of my goals for all clients that seek my help is to trace outward symptoms to unmet needs, and to improve quality of life by finding ways to meet those needs."

"Are you a perfectionist at heart? Do you believe others must like you for you to be okay? Does it feel like you are always crazy busy, but something is missing? People-pleasing can make you feel stressed and burned-out. The rollercoaster ups and downs can make you feel upset and even a bit angry when you are usually a very nice person. My clients learn new ways of looking at things so that they feel better about how they treat their friends, family, and how they treat themselves. Together, we focus on the issues you want to work on in therapy and maximize our time in session."

"My clients have been trying to make changes for a long time. Sometimes their struggles take over and cause them to do drastic things like over-exercise, binge, purge, or restrict. For a moment they feel better. But over time, their struggles begin to take on a life of their own. By the time my clients find me, they feel very distant from who they are and the life they used to enjoy. The people I work with want to stop obsessing about food and appearance. Many struggle with anxiety, depression, or traumatic histories. A small part of them believes life can be better and is searching for guidance on how to get there. "
