As a trauma-informed (PCTI) therapist, I am heavily influenced by Viktor Frankl, a Nazi Concentration Camp Survivor, psychiatrist, and founder of Logotherapy. Logotherapy is anchored in the belief that a person’s primary motivational force is to find a sense of meaning or purpose in one's life—but the lack thereof, leaves the individual experiencing meaninglessness and may spiral downward into anxiety, depression, substance use, PTSD, and other mental health issues. With 12 years of experience and certifications in various modalities, together, our work will refocus you and your life and invigorate it with purpose and meaning.
Looking for an affirming therapist who offers culturally competent therapy for members of LGBTQ+ and other vulnerable communities?

Would you like to change your relationship with food or your body? Is your life consumed with thoughts about body image, fears of weight gain, fat-phobia, or avoidance behaviors?

I help clients to build resilience and cope with life's challenges. I embrace our mutual humanity, which allows for an open, collaborative and casual style to therapy. I use connection, metaphor, and humor in my work as catalysts for change.

So my guess is, if you have landed here, you're ready to begin the journey toward healing.

Needing to make a big change? Stuck in a job, relationship, or routine? Wanting to “turn the page” and create a new chapter in life but don’t know how to begin? It happens to all of us and there's something we can do. It's called "mental fitness." Just like physical fitness trains our bodies, mental fitness trains our brains to help us respond to life's challenges with a positive mindset to improve performance, lower stress, and build healthy relationships.
There's a strong, wise presence in us all - guiding our best actions. Sometimes we forget, doubt, reject this. Abuse, abandonment/neglect, trauma may have led to beliefs we're deficient, flawed - even deserving mistreatment and pain. Maybe we've been told - or heard - we must do or be certain things for love and acceptance. _______________________________________ Perhaps you're in touch with your inner strength and wisdom - more than you think - facing your challenges, seeking solutions to discover new ways of living and thriving. I am dedicated to supporting your journey - and welcome the opportunity to connect with you!
