About

Maybe you have been told that you need to be smaller. Thinner. Quieter. Less angry. Take up less space and be less demanding. I work with mostly women and queer, trans and non-binary folk who are tired of being told they are "too much." I believe that no one is too much, and that attempting to squeeze ourselves into a too tight box is damaging. Currently, my case load is 40% teens and 60% adults.
I am trauma informed (going slow with challenging material), psychodynamic (paying attention to how the past influences the present), and client-centered (I follow your lead). I'm heavily influenced and motivated by social justice principles, and I like to bring in mindfulness and somatic awareness during session. I provide a space where you can be heard.
Scientific research has shown that the best predictor of success in therapy is the strength of the relationship we form together. In other words- we have to like each other! I encourage you to reach out and see if the vibe is right, and to trust your intuition. There's no forcing a good connection.
