We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

Your uncomfortable symptoms may be what send you to therapy, but they can also serve you. You may feel overwhelmed or confused, and yet this is also an invitation for hope, curiosity, insight, and self-compassion. It is an opportunity to be able to access some of the deepest realms of yourself, to heal, and to move forward with greater confidence in your life. I work with individuals of all ages, and provide support for people experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, adoption, trauma, body image and eating disorders, life transitions, individuation, co-dependence, overall work and family stress, and multicultural issues.

I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough.

Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it just takes a little guidance to really make the changes you want to make in your life. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, non-monogamous and kinky adults, sex workers, and those with alternative spiritualities. I am sex-positive and body-positive.
