Taking charge of your healing journey is a heroic step. Much like training for an athletic challenge, it requires dedication, courage, determination, and self-love - as well as a good coach. We will do incredible work together if you are motivated to commit to your own growth process, are curious and open-minded, and are willing to do the sometimes difficult mental, emotional, and spiritual work to change habits and patterns that no longer serve you or those you care about. I'm especially passionate about working with healers, helpers, teachers, parents, caregivers, and people healing from childhood and intergenerational trauma.
I have deep professional, academic, and personal experience in trauma, neurodiversity (Autism, ADHD), family/parenting issues, and mood struggles including depression, anxiety, and grief. More importantly, I bring a compassionate, strengths-based, whole-person mindset to my work. My role as I see it is to help you embrace your true self and let the rest go.
Taking the first step toward healing can be intimidating, and it's hard to know who to trust. Feel free to give me a call or send me an email to see if we'd be a good fit. The initial consultation is always at no cost to you, and if I'm not the right person to accompany you on your unique journey, I'll do my best to help you find someone who can.

Working with trauma, neurodiversity, and family issues can be a complex process that doesn't neatly fit the standard 50 minutes per week model. We will design an approach that works for you and your unique needs and schedule. My approach integrates emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual elements into a whole-person healing model that I find to be more effective than cognitive therapy.

Our path together will be deeply personalized, based on your unique goals, situation, values, and challenges. I'm unusual among therapists in that I think about and work with the whole system around a client or family, not just the individual. I believe we are both a product of our environment, and also impact our environment. We will work together to empower you as an agent of change and healing.
