About

Have you been going through big changes in your life? Do you feel like you've lost a lot, whether that's a part of yourself or an important relationship? Are you struggling to figure out who you are and what comes next? I'd love to be a part of your honorable journey in figuring out how to support. We are each born into this world filled with curiosity and hope, and unfortunately that doesn't always remain due to the hardships life brings. In my practice I will show up authentically and humbly. You know you best, and you truly are the expert of your own life!
I have worked with a wide variety of folks with different experiences and intersectional identities, and have found that we all want to feel seen, valued, and loved. You're not alone in feeling overwhelmed by what has happened or is currently happening. I can provide insight, guidance, and tools to help you navigate through life and so you can feel empowered
In my work I draw from narrative therapy, queer and feminist theory, compassion based practices and psychodynamic. As your therapist you can expect a human who is deeply interested in getting to know you, and will compassionately hold space for whatever you may bring. As a Highly Sensitive Person, I am able to create a space to hold the spectrum of feelings.
