Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

I am sex-positive, kink-affirming, LGBT+/GSM-affirming, and ENM/CNM/poly-affirming. I work with clients to notice, give attention, and slow down when the world wants us to ignore, distract, and speed up. By gently exploring family patterns and our ways of being in relationship, we can come to intriguing conclusions about ourselves and others. By cultivating and accessing community, self-compassion, and intimacy (both physical and emotional), we can heal from trauma, and lift ourselves out of even the darkest places.

We often go through life with blinders on, forging ahead to the next milestone, until something happens that throws us off kilter. Sometimes it is loss – loss of a job, loved one, or sense of self. Sometimes these road bumps come from new additions – birth, adoption, new relationships, career opportunities. I view these road bumps as opportunities to learn more about yourself: your values, desires, capabilities, and most of all, your resilience.

Many people enter into therapy only to find themselves gaining small amounts of insight that produce little or no changes in their life. My therapeutic methods produce results that not only change the way we feel about ourselves in the world but change our behaviors.

We all need a little help from time to time. Especially now, when life throws us a curveball and we need help processing things like loss, anxiety, life transitions, heartache, and depression. Going it alone is possible, but whew, it’s not easy. I'm a mental health professional and have “just sucked it up” several times in my life. When I slogged it out on my own there were bouts of prolonged frustration, sadness, loss, and confusion. When I did finally “get it together already” and saw a therapist, I felt clearer, more like myself and had a sense of hope that it would get better and it usually did.
