I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you feel comfortable expressing whatever is on your mind without fear of judgment. I believe that you are the expert in your own healing, and I will work collaboratively with you to identify and reach your treatment goals. I use approaches that have been scientifically researched and found to be effective, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and somatic and mindfulness-based interventions. I will work with you to ensure that you are not in therapy longer than is necessary to reach your treatment goals.
I specialize in helping individuals struggling with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, relational conflict, intimacy concerns and other issues pertaining to sexuality and gender. With couples, I use an evidence-based approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which draws on attachment theory and the science of emotions.
Additionally, I have extensive training in sex therapy through the sexual health alliance and am working towards an AASECT certification. I enjoy working with all genders and ages over 14. No matter what brings you to therapy, I am here to help you on your healing journey. Note that my in-person days are Thursday and Friday.

I like to use EMDR for clients with a history of past trauma as it tends to be much more effective and efficient than talk therapy! I also enjoy using mindfulness-based and somatic interventions because they make deeper healing possible (sometimes talk therapy on its own is not enough). Every intervention I use has been scientifically researched and found to be effective.
