Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

Do you want to better understand yourself and your relationships? Are you feeling stuck and unsure of how to move forward? Therapy can provide a place where you can freely express yourself and explore, without judgment, the obstacles that are preventing you from having a more satisfied life. I enjoy helping clients learn to listen to all of their feelings and let go of old patterns that once served them but no longer do. I offer support and challenge through the therapy relationship as people face their personal truths.

If you’re looking for a therapist, you're ready for something in your life to change. Are you tired of trying to figure things out on your own? Are you struggling with your important relationships? Do the people you usually turn to for guidance no longer seem to know how to help? Whatever brought you to this point, your regular ways of making yourself feel better are no longer enough to restore your peace of mind. You don’t need to deal with all of that alone.

**I am unable to accept new clients at this time.** I specialize in working with women and queer-identified individuals with relationship concerns (with others or self). This may include struggles with sexuality/intimacy, trust, impact of trauma, relationship endings, or low self-worth. Relationship concerns may manifest into symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, or difficulties expressing emotions. Those who work with me find themselves increasing their ability to communicate their needs in relationships, feel more empowered, recognize they are valued and worthy, and better understand and respond to their emotions.

**Teletherapy secure video sessions available** Finding a therapist can be challenging. It may feel overwhelming to take the initial steps to begin counseling and search for someone who is the right fit for your unique personality. I emphasize the importance of a positive therapeutic relationship where collaboration assists you in getting you to where you want to be. Many people have asked me how I can do such a difficult job. I see my “job” as a gift. It is truly special when people allow me to be apart of their lives and can be vulnerable with me as we walk together in the healing process, whatever that may look like for them.

I partner with clients to identify their own unique strengths that can be used as resources to foster growth and change. I am attentive to the role of early family experiences, cultural values, oppression, and stigma in shaping client's experiences. Particularly when addressing painful or traumatic areas, I attend to clients' emotional safety using mindfulness and body awareness. I believe that healing happens in the context of honest relationships and invite my clients to engage in open dialog about our work together.

I see therapy as a process in which you and I work together towards helping you overcome obstacles to living life authentically, as a healthy, integrated person. This can be achieved by helping you gain insight into relational themes and patterns, learn new coping strategies, and become empowered to take the steps needed to create the change you desire. Often we experience symptoms such as anxiety or depressed mood that interfere with our ability to achieve or even form goals. Through alleviating these symptoms, you can increase understanding of yourself, honor your needs, and develop more satisfying relationships with others and with yourself.

Perhaps you are struggling with a big transition, such as the death of a loved one, getting married or divorced, having a child, changing careers, or coming out. Or maybe you just feel stuck and you're not sure why. New clients often say that they are frustrated because they would like to feel happier but can't seem to figure out how.

Our struggles are messengers. If we know how to listen, they can teach us about our deepest needs. Our struggles also bring wisdom about lost or disowned parts of ourselves that are searching for a way home, and the particular risks we may each need to take in order to feel more alive. Greeting these messengers with compassion and curiosity can loosen rigid patterns and storylines, setting us free. And even when it’s not possible to undo the source of pain, as in cases of trauma, it’s still possible to learn an entirely new way to dance with what hurts – and to commit to inviting joy, flexibility, and fullness in.
