We all have an innate desire to connect with others and feel deeply understood. I specialize in working with individuals on a holistic level. I have a passion for women’s issues as well as sexual and gender diversity. My approach to therapy is a blend of emotional exploration, mindfulness techniques, feminist theory, and narrative therapy that result in the reduction of mental health struggles and increased feelings of fulfillment. Additionally, I believe in approaching people from a trauma informed lens. I am trained in EMDR and many of my clients have found it to be a powerful tool in their healing journeys.

*NOT currently accepting new clients* The biggest step to making a positive change is the very first one, and it's likely the one you're taking right now. Why not have a little guidance while you're navigating through it? I set out to become a therapist because I saw need in the world for working through difficulties rather than around them. My goal is to help my clients strengthen the tools that they already have in their arsenal to combat symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, everyday stress, and more.

You may be exhausted, disconnected, or feeling empty and looking for some hope. You may feel alone on this journey and believe something needs to change. Seeking therapy takes bravery, and I’m glad you’re here. Perhaps you are in a relationship that just doesn’t feel right or you have experienced something that has left you feeling afraid, out of control, or numb. Maybe you are navigating a difficult journey toward motherhood, grieving the loss of one or more pregnancies, or have arrived at motherhood to realize that this is not what you had expected.

Accepting new clients I know that making the decision to find a person to speak with is an extremely personal and intimate one. Once this decision is made then comes the search to find the "right" person and this may not be an easy task. I want to reassure you that I understand this and strive to create a relaxed and welcoming environment. I feel the development of a trusting and respectful relationship between client and therapist is vital to the therapeutic process and is a primary goal in treatment. We will talk about your goals and how to use them as motivation in therapy. Then create a plan together to achieve them.

I specialize in working with clients with eating disorder, trauma, and addiction. I have a particular interest for working with marginalized voices, especially within the LGBTQ+ community. One passion is helping those impacted by power-based personal violence and assisting them in reclaiming their voice. I believe in fostering mutually-empowering relationships with clients that assist in supporting them through their personal journeys and encouraging them to access their inner strength and capacity for change. I enjoy working with individuals, families, and groups, with a special interest in the emerging adult population.

Special interests include relationship and identity issues; adolescent and women's issues; anxiety and PTSD; blended families; and lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgender concerns.
Twenty-five years into it, I still love being a counselor and psychotherapist. It is an honor and a privilege to be involved in the personal struggle and transformation of each client, couple, and family I see. I regard therapy more as an art than a science, though I certainly utilize current research in my practice. Most often my clients present problems in living rather than "mental illness" per se and they appreciate my attention to their strengths, resources, and spiritual concerns.
