I believe the best therapeutic interventions are co-created. We work together to identify what you would like to work on and discuss ways you can better know yourself or approach a situation. We practice balancing self awareness with compassion, nonjudgment, and without pathologizing.

My therapeutic practice is a supportive, humanistic, person-centered, strength-based, trauma-informed and relational approach. The evidence based techniques we may use are mindfulness, DBT, mind body, yoga, and creativity. My experience includes working with trauma, depression, anxiety, mood, loss, sexual assault, abuse, relationships, identity, transitions, confidence and wellbeing.

I value and uphold a LGBTQ+ affirming practice. Also, I am certified in Yoga-Informed Psychotherapy from Live Oak and yoga teacher trained RYT200. **Please contact me by Email**
