My style of therapy is informed by psychodynamic psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and feminist theory.
During these stressful times, it is easy to feel that we are not in control. Together we will work through fears and identify your guiding values to uncover or revive your authenticity, self-acceptance, and inner strength. I will listen and explore alongside you as we consider where you are and the roadblocks you are experiencing. We will use your values to help guide your internal dialogue and future path. While you may be concerned that the process can feel uncomfortable, I work to create an affirming space where you feel safe and comfortable expressing yourself. ​

**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I help teens and adults of all ages and life stages who are experiencing anxiety, depression, ADHD, and life transitions as well as individuals exploring themselves in their sexuality, sexual orientation, relationship structure, and gender identity to live at ease with authenticity, peace, and liberation. Clients find the most powerful and congruent changes by pulling from their own values, beliefs, and strengths. I believe that we each have the right to explore and become our truest selves, and I hope to join you in creating and aligning with the changes and goals that you want.

I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all therapeutic philosophy; rather, I like to incorporate a variety of philosophies in my practice so that I can attend to each client's individual needs and goals. An effective therapist both meets a client where they are at and helps to facilitate positive change. A therapist should create a safe and affirming space for a client to both process and problem-solve. I utilize a trauma-informed framework and am passionate about incorporating tenets of social justice and multicultural counseling in my work.
