I employ a systems-oriented, relational, and trauma-informed approach to my work and enjoy working with folks (especially Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People Of Color) looking to heal and thrive in the face of trauma and oppression.
"Pain is important: how we evade it, how we succumb to it, how we deal with it, how we transcend it" - Audre Lorde. I hope to build healing relationships with people who would like to build more connection, ease and freedom into their lives. I work relationally and through the body by building self awareness, doing standing and seated practices, and if appropriate, supportive touch.

Guiding your children to a positive future is the most challenging and rewarding role you will ever fill. However, sometimes our children don't understand their emotions or have the coping skills to face life's challenges. I have devoted over 20 years working in a variety of settings to help children and families better understand themselves and strengthen their relationships. Some of my experiences include private practice therapy, school counseling (k-12), and social work. I now have a group practice and supervise clinicians working with all types of clients.

I meet people “where they are at”, I honor who we are as individuals-from a holistic, biopsychosocial perspective; biologically: we all have genetics we inherited from our Ancestor’s, psychologically: our mental characteristics and attitudes, socially: the people and groups we all choose to be around.
