This world, this life, is pretty absurd when we think about it. We're on a giant rock floating in the vast universe, not knowing why we're here and how to navigate it all. I want to be there for people trying to find a way to forge their path through life and find some joy, contentment, humor, and purpose along the way. I work with individuals and couples who are seeking out therapy to work on finding relief from relationship stress, depression, anxiety, and/or trauma, whether it's linked to past experiences or because of current stressors in their lives.
My work focuses on creating a safe, secure space for people to show up as their authentic selves. This involves developing deeper insight and awareness into emotions, bodily sensations, and patterns of thinking. I believe everyone has the ability to make positive change, and I utilize empathy, reflection, and the use of DBT/ACT skills to help clients grow.
My ideal client is interested in exploring their emotions, their lived experiences, and finding meaning in their life. I work with clients who may be struggling with low self-esteem, hopelessness, self-harm, high levels of anxiety, and relationship conflict. I appreciate working with LGBTQIA+, monogamous and ethical non-monogamous clients.

I often use humanistic, emotion-focused therapy in my practice. I incorporate education and skill-building using ACT and DBT to develop better insight into thought patterns and communication styles. I use evidence-based practices designed to help develop the ability to cope with stress in the moment.
