"Beginning a course of therapy, whether for yourself or for your child, is an act of loving commitment. I see therapy as a collaborative process, something we do together as you or your child navigate through stuck patterns and toward health and wholeness. My style is warm, relational, and sincere. With both child and adult clients, I work actively with thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. My office is calming and inviting, and equipped for both play therapy with children, and hands-on somatic therapy with adults. We can do either brief goal-oriented work or longer-term depth work."

"Conflict, sadness, confusion, anger, grief, worry, shame, fear, phobias, nightmares: They can arise in our lives like scary monsters. Children, adolescents, and adults all experience these feelings as unwanted and unwelcome. What if, instead of pushing these feelings away, we listened to what they have to say to us? This might sound just too, too scary, but that's why I'm here. When an unknown part of ourselves looms like a monster in the closet, we must coax it out with patience and kindness. This is very difficult to do alone (especially for young people!) "

"New life roles or transitions can leave us feeling isolated, overwhelmed, disconnected from friends and family, and anxious. You can feel simultaneously stuck and untethered when you just want to feel grounded and sure of yourself. Does the pressure of your new role leave you paralyzed, nervous, and incredibly lonely? Are you feeling as though you have no one who understands the changes you are undergoing? Like you can never have "the old you" back? Maybe your relationship has been leaving you feeling unfulfilled, confused, lonely, and stuck. You want to feel supported, heard, and safe in your commitment to stay. "

"Early exposure to the mental healthcare system taught me that oppression can be as multi-layered and intersectional as the oppressed, and diagnosis will continue to be an act of oppression if it ignores cultural context, societal phobias, and systemic oppression. For a great number, our mental health is a representation of how we survive our social climate. To see things creatively is to see symptoms as keys to recovery and radical healing. Before I was a therapist, I was a visual artist and writer. So not only have I been able to see things through a critical lens, I learned to appreciate imagery, symbolism and metaphor in life. "
