About

Accepting New Clients! These are times of upheaval. Political turmoil, COVID, climate chaos, & violence on BIPOC reinforced by our systems. Isolation induced depression. Overwhelm, numbness, & agitation with systems and/or police brutality. Despair w/ job and wage insecurity & loss. Lowered immunity & illness exacerbated by chronic fear, anxiety, oppression, & exhaustion. Unprocessed grief & anticipatory grief. In this time of great systems upheaval, we need to be intentional & creative in (re)connecting w/ each other & ourselves, families, and communities. We need mending to sustain & to (re)imagine what is possible!
I believe the power of therapy lies in improving our relationships to the world, the people close to us, and ultimately to ourselves. My core approach to therapy is mindfulness focused & integrative. I am trauma sensitive, integrating techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, & somatics.
I support my clients in honoring their unique identities, pay attention to their present moment, their bodily and mind states with presence and kindness (a simple working definition of mindfulness). My clients, in turn, can move lovingly towards their current struggles, mend and heal, clarify and envision, and grow and root in wisdom.
