I am a passionate about working with LGBTQ + and BIPOC folx and I work towards healing the emotional experience and bodies, in all bodies, including all sizes (HAES), genders, and relationship orientations including kink, poly and ethical monogamy.
Satisfaction, joy and self-awareness are key elements to a fulfilling life. Although that seems easier said than done, I believe that we can find these elements with encouraging support and guidance. I am a committed, compassionate therapist who is ready to help you uncover your inner strengths to make the changes you want and live a more gratifying life. I believe that we all take a journey to find ourselves, but it becomes even more difficult when we are burdened by depression, addiction and/or trauma. Finding the right fit can help us get through difficult times, creating positive relationship is paramount to our happiness.

I’m experienced working with LGBTQ + and heterosexual couples, and with monogamous and consensually non-monogamous relationships.
Are you seeking deeper attachment? I work with couples and individuals to increase your awareness in everyday moments. You will begin to recognize habits and behaviors and remove obstacles that hinder your connections. Within a trusting environment, I help clients process life-changing events including loss and grief, chronic health diagnoses, adoption, and job growth and relocation. I offer support for couples who want to strengthen their relationships and resolve issues preventing emotional and sexual intimacy. Where appropriate, I offer intensive therapy to bring clarity and begin the healing process of life experiences.

I wrote for Counseling Today on subjects like facing infertility, LGBT issues, and college life adjustment.
Whether in person or via telehealth during the pandemic, I am passionate about helping people facing relationship struggles that manifest as anxiety, depression, and difficulty with intimacy. My experience and training (EFT: Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, Imago, PACT) taught me that most emotional challenges are tied to how we function in our personal relationships. I've been told that my real strength is helping people feel safe and reflective enough to recognize, think through, and either accept or change the way they approach the relationships that matter most.

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.

I help adults navigate the challenging experience of coping with grief following a loss. I also help clients with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and family-of-origin issues. I specialize in treating complicated grief, traumatic bereavement, and grief stemming from attachment trauma, relationship loss, and family estrangement. Loss is often a highly distressing experience and there is not a duration of time that grieving should take; however, some mourners feel stuck in their grief or desire support. My aim is not to help you extinguish or "cure" grief, but to help you find ways to integrate it into your life narrative.

Many of us find ourselves struggling with persistent feelings, patterns, and reactions that hold us back. Perhaps you’ve tried psychotherapy before, and you have a good understanding of your problems but they haven’t changed. Or perhaps you 'know' that you are capable, worthy, and appreciated by others, but at your core, you don't feel this way. I believe that much of the time, symptoms develop from negative life experiences that have not been fully resolved.

I'm a licensed psychotherapist specializing in depression and trauma. My clients are usually INFJs, empaths, and other highly sensitive humans who are looking to invite more clarity, calm, purpose, joy, and ease into their lives. They are often wanting to sort through deep questions and reconnect with their inner wisdom. Our work together helps them look inside and make sense of what feels like a tangled mess of emotions.

One of my favorite therapy-isms is, "if nothing changes, nothing changes". You deserve the opportunity to feel your best and I would be honored to help you on your journey towards emotional healing and self-discovery. The best part of being a therapist is getting to discover all the unique strengths and coping skills that everyone possesses, and helping them identify and access those gifts. I love working with people in all stages of life, and truly believe in the healing power of a strong, therapeutic relationship.

Many people would like to imagine the world is a good, safe place full of potential, yet at times we find our lives suddenly interrupted and shaken up. Perhaps leaving you feeling disoriented, disconnected, lost or confused. During times of challenge, change, or following a frightening event, our natural instincts are to reach out to loved ones for support. When we've had experiences of loved ones as distant, dangerous, or unpredictable this might leave us to try to cope with these feelings on our own.

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.

I believe people are fundamentally resilient. Our histories and life experiences shape us, change us and require us to adapt. But in the midst of a global pandemic, climate emergencies, gender, ethnic and racial violence, and economic and political unrest, even the healthiest among us struggle to cope.

Sometimes, life imposes barriers or rifts on our path, leaving us lost or stuck, uncertain of how to move forward. I support those who arrive at this place by holding a container for deeper self exploration and reflection to foster the remembrance of one's innate abilities to heal and walk forth. Individuals connect with me for a trusted space to tend to wounds of developmental and ancestral trauma, sexual and domestic violence, and grief and loss. Others seek me out for support in cultivating an integrated awareness of themselves, their relationships, and their part in our world or to prepare for and process psychedelic journeys.

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.
