While I have enjoyed working effectively with a wide variety of individuals, I specialize in LGBTQ affirmative therapy, ADHD, anxiety, depression, chronic shame, couples/relationship challenges, and open relationships.
One of the hardest parts of the therapeutic process is choosing the right therapist for you, and I hope to join you on your journey towards greater self-understanding, compassion, and insight. Many people come to therapy after experiencing emotional distress that has led them to feel overwhelmed and as though they have lost direction in, and control of, their life. In a safe and non-judgmental space, I work collaboratively with my clients to explore ways in which they can effectively regain a sense of empowerment, meaning, and control in their lives.

For over 15 years, I have worked with clients who struggle with "diagnosable" eating disorders, chronic disordered eating, food and body obsession, shame and self blame, thought patterns and behaviors resulting from prior dieting and living in a thin-obsessed world. My goal for every one of my clients is peace, freedom and sanity around food, movement, and body shape; that's it. I am a Health At Every Size certified practitioner. As such, I am dedicated to an anti-diet, body liberation perspective. My approach is compassionate, relational, casual, warm, and loving.

Eating disorders are like chasing a rabbit down a hole in pursuit of something you lost. One day, you realize what you lost was yourself. Food, exercise, & body image are treacherous to navigate in a society that overvalues appearance and that values some body types over others. It can be especially challenging if you identify as autistic, an ADHDer, a highly sensitive person, and/or a human who wrestles with gender dysphoria. Who you are is a gift. You do not have to hide or become less of who you are. Through therapy we will uncover and use your unique strengths to move towards growth and healing.

Do you have a "body-mind" issue? IBS, eating disorders, insomnia, anxiety, auto-immune conditions, trauma reactions, depression and even relationship problems can be tied in to the way that your body is functioning! When you are flooded with stress hormones, you become impatient with yourself and others. When you are not properly nourished or rested, you aren't able to be present and connected.

Welcome, I truly believe that therapy is a brave and courageous choice. I strive to create a warm, empathetic, and safe environment for each client that chooses to work with me. I have a special expertise working with both adolescents and adults with mood disorders. Our relationship will be used as an element of change. Often, I will utilize aspects of our relationship to highlight barriers to change and provide a warm and directive approach to push you towards growth. My approach within our therapeutic relationship tends to be more collaborative and I commonly use interventions including mindfulness, CBT, DBT and attachment theory.

Entering therapy is an empowering experience, which is most effective when working with the right therapist. I offer an accepting environment that promotes authenticity without fear of judgement. I have an inclusive, collaborative counseling style, and strive to support clients of all genders in creating value-consistent, goal-directed change. My approach varies based on what my clients bring into the room. I choose my interventions with intention and thoughtfulness-- but also value the art of spontaneity versus a "one size fits all" model. When working with me, clients can expect a combination of support, challenges, and humor.

I am privileged to have worked in the mental health field for nearly a decade and specialize in working with young adults, new parents, and millennials. As a certified trauma therapist, many of my clients are working through past trauma (commonly interpersonal trauma and sexual trauma), in addition to relationship conflicts, depression, anxiety, and/or body image & self esteem issues. I have a special passion for working with women’s fertility issues and young adults going through life changes. I work best with those who are willing to dig deep to process rooted emotions and issues at a pace that is right for each person.
