We all experience distressing thinking and painful feelings at times. Based on our interpretation of our circumstances, we've innocently created beliefs and thought patterns that seem "logical" to us but are actually creating our painful and limiting responses to life's challenges. But there's a deeper understanding of how our minds work that, when insightfully seen, naturally uncovers our inborn mental health and resilience. Our minds are designed to insightfully break free of limiting misunderstandings. We're designed to live life beyond "coping" as our inborn psychological security naturally emerges.

I know that finding the right therapist can be intimidating. My goal is to make the therapy process welcoming and transparent. I work particularly well with people who've been told they are "too sensitive" or who identify as Highly Sensitive People. My talent lies in treating anxiety, trauma and attachment/relationship wounds, as well as depression. I support those who care for their communities: healers, caregivers, artists or those with creative practices, and activists. I've worked w/ ages 3-90 across class, race, gender, sexual orientation, & health status. Together, we can explore hard topics with sensitivity and humor.

I believe all people have the potential for growth and change in their lives. My role as a licensed psychologist is to act as an advocate and facilitator, helping you to examine past and present issues and achieve insights and understanding that will enable you to develop the tools and skills necessary to move beyond them. Therapy is a process dependent upon trust, and so my objective is to provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment that will allow you to feel comfortable sharing your innermost thoughts and feelings, as well as your current and past behaviors and experiences.

My favorite aspect of therapy is helping individuals and couples to reclaim their power and wisdom to actuate change. Stagnation and indecision can be some of the most difficult aspects of struggling with mental health or current acute stressors. Freedom comes when we find a "how" to begin creating movement once again. Through the combination of emotion focused, somatic, and cognitive evidence based practices, I can assist you with finding clarity and a way forward.

**CURRENTLY FULL** I utilize an eclectic psychoanalytic and relational approach while employing a strong racial justice, feminist, and queer theory lens. I practice from a fat-lib, sex-positive, and intersectional feminist perspective. I believe that one's past informs how they interact with and experience the world. Healing takes place as one fosters empathy and consideration for their past and present selves. The therapeutic relationship allows for gaining deeper perspective and understanding of oneself. I strive to build genuine and earnest rapport with my clients by being deeply nonjudgmental and always practicing with respect.

I think of the therapeutic relationship as a workshop where clients can plan, tinker, experiment, test, problem solve, and refine parts of themselves, their relationships, and their lives with my unwavering support. It's a place and time where we can collaborate on what might need to change, what tools are necessary for the task, and on the ways it might begin to unfold. I create and hold a safe place for clients to ponder, practice, and consider change-- especially when they struggle to maintain that space for themselves. As a trauma informed practitioner, I am able to ground and contain stressful affect to help clients feel held.

I specialize in seeing a client's stated issues as part of a system - the world where one lives. Helping clients to rediscover and utilize his/her/their strengths in dealing with the difficulties one faces while working to challenge external stressors by helping the client to interact with the issue differently than before are my ultimate goals as a therapist. To do this, clients will need to determine the goals of therapy, find the right balance of responsibility in the situation presented, and then, through therapy, develop the tools and understanding necessary to realize these goals.

Let's get real about what you want from your relationships! You're wondering how to even begin to talk about these deep and personal things that you have been avoiding for so long. Have you tried to look past a transgression but you can't seem to get over it? Do you feel like your well-meaning partner can't seem to understand your past trauma and how it affects everything? Maybe a recent loss is stirring up old feelings. Perhaps you feel like things are "okay", yet deep down you know you are hiding an important part of yourself. Whatever it is, you keep trying to bury it but it always seems to come back up. You're ready for change.

I believe in the Talking Cure. Life can be fraught with disappointments, losses, stressors and challenges that feel overwhelming and discouraging. Finding words to describe thoughts, feelings, past and present experiences, in presence of a compassionate and non-judgmental other, affords profound and lasting relief from the emotional discomfort that interferes with the ability to live the life one desires. Undigested emotional pain from the past can interfere with ones ability to live a full and satisfying life in the present. Identifying those emotions whose roots are in the past, frees us to live more fully in the here and now.
