I specialize in treating anxiety, mood disorders, trauma and interpersonal conflict.
I believe we are all born with everything we need to thrive, then life slaps us in the face in an abundance of ways from a variety of directions and we adjust our beliefs and behaviors in order to simply survive. If you are here looking for a therapist, it is likely you are not satisfied with how you have adjusted to life’s various assaults. My approach to therapy is more direct, utilizes humor, and is founded in cognitive behavioral theory with a strengths based perspective. I enjoy working with clients who are motivated for something different and willing to do the hard work to get it.

Are you experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression from living in this difficult world? Perhaps you've experienced your own personal trauma, or are seeking to understand and find joy in identities that the majority population "others" or discriminates against. I enjoy working with people across the lifespan, especially those in the queer community who are seeking relief and are ready to explore ways to show up with more embodied joy and liberation. As a queer therapist, I am also dedicated to changing the stigma around mental health from "what is wrong with you", to "what happened to you?"

I use an integrative approach that combines aspects from different theoretical perspectives such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and trauma-informed care.
“I feel like I’m not good enough.” “I don’t know how to deal with experiences from my past.” “I am unhappy in my relationship.” “My child is withdrawn and struggling in school.” “I am easily overwhelmed and I can’t get anything done.” If this speaks to you, I’m here to help. It is normal to struggle with emotions or experiences in life, but they don’t have to define you. I can help you build the necessary tools and skills to overcome the obstacles you are facing. I work with children, teens, and adults to overcome trauma, self-esteem difficulties, and enhance emotional regulation.

I believe that you have the strength to move beyond your pain, into a space of authentic and lasting life fulfillment. I am here to help you tap into this strength. We often get stuck in our minds and disconnect from our bodies, preventing us from accessing the body’s wisdom, intuition, and resilience. Through uniting the mind and the body, you are able to transcend your struggles and embrace the present moment, cultivating a deep connection to your life. Together, we will work to connect to the body’s consciousness, enabling you to move past negative beliefs and patterns while illuminating the empowered essence of who you are.
