About

In the sea of content available online, we may think that we can "fix" ourselves if we just have the right information, but this is not the case. We require connection for healing to occur. I practice therapy in a way that prioritizes the relationship between therapist and patient. I utilize the information gleaned from our relationship to uncover thoughts and feelings you weren’t aware of, helping you stop behaviors and ways of being that are no longer serving you. I help patients see the role trauma has played in their lives by providing education and nurturing areas of psychological growth that were suppressed because of trauma.
I am always mindful of societal structures and how privilege and power cause suffering. Power constructs, such as the gender binary, patriarchy, capitalism and white supremacy make people feel that there is something inherently wrong with them. Living in these traumatizing systems can cause feelings of low self-worth, overwhelm, and hopelessness.
You will find that therapy can provide benefits beyond symptom relief, such as improved self esteem, increased capacity to tolerate stress, the ability to experience joy and pleasure, and increased intimacy in one's relationships. Together we can find a way to bear the pain you are experiencing and move through it. You do not have to do this alone.
