I have experience working with people dealing with the fallout of childhood abuse or neglect, abusive relationships, insecure attachment, disordered eating, self-harm, borderline personality disorder, recurrent suicidal ideation, and substance use.
Do you feel your emotions either very intensely or not at all? Like you’re somehow too much or not enough? Do you find yourself thinking “I could just kill myself" a little too often? When you have felt alone in this for a long time, it can feel impossible to imagine a different way of being. No wonder you're seeking relief, escape, or comfort. I specialize in working with clients who feel limited by the ways they are living or by the things that have happened to them. The healing work of therapy can reveal the possibilities of a life that feels more free and more meaningful, and I look forward to joining you in this process.

I specialize in early childhood trauma, attachment injury, sexual violence , military trauma, and gender- and queer-affirming counseling.
As a trauma therapist, I know it takes courage to share your private experiences & vulnerabilities with someone new to you—such as a counselor. This understanding informs everything about my practice—in building our working relationship, I seek to cultivate a safe, healthy space where no matter who you are, you can be your most authentic self, without judgement. One of my missions is serving those who serve others—I have extensive experience working with military veterans & first responders, & if that’s you, I can help you cultivate the tools you need to navigate the uniquely challenging stressors and traumas of those experiences.
