About

It's normal to be going through a hard time. But if you haven’t yet discovered what helps you manage your unique stressors, relationships, and boundaries, then life likely feels so much harder than it needs to. If you're feeling stuck, having an outside perspective can help you see different paths through a difficult terrain. Whether your troubles stem from internal or external issues, I know that by creating a warm and reflective space where we explore your worries, challenges, and motivations, you can find places of relief and even joy.
I've taught yoga for many years, and if you're interested in bringing mindfulness practice into your therapy, I can show you somatic (aka body-based) and breathing exercises that fit into your daily life and aid in emotion regulation and build self-awareness – all of which may help you “turn the volume down" on symptoms of anxiety, depression and pain.
I am affirming of LGBTQ+ and consensually non-monogamous clients. I’d love to hear more about you, your experiences in therapy if you’ve tried it before, and what’s coming up for you now. You can reach me by clicking the "email me" button under my photo on this page, and we'll find a time to talk soon.
