My ideal client is curious, growth inspired, and has experienced trauma. I work with codependency, those that have been effected by narcissism, addiction, low self worth and generational trauma. I have a fondness and offer my support to those that are parents, co-parents and caretakers of children, or those that can not take care of themselves. I enjoy working with people with relationships as their focus, walking them through dating and the search for a partner or those that feel stuck in their relationships and need a space to share their confusion, fear and not knowing.

I’ll work with individuals, couples, or families from any community and/or background.
As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.

Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work.
