I particularly focus on providing support for individuals coping with trauma , substance abuse, anxiety, perfectionism and codependency.
I view therapy as a collaborative process and strive to tailor treatment to reflect those goals most important to you. I aim to create a safe, non-judgmental space to encourage self-exploration, curiosity and growth to facilitate lasting, meaningful change. Throughout the course of therapy, we will together identify skills necessary to manage current life stressors, while also delving into deeper rooted issues potentially manifesting in problematic areas present today.

I am a certified trauma professional - specially trained in trauma -informed approaches, but use an eclectic style of treatment.
My approach as a counselor is highly relational, I believe that acceptance, safety, and trust are important aspects of engendering connection with people, particularly in clinical work. We all have a unique lens through which we view and understand the world - I focus on understanding each individuals’ subjective experiences that create their realities and facilitating the exploration of perspective through a variety of expressions. I believe we can all find more compassion toward ourselves and others by tapping into our innate healing intelligence to achieve greater coping and balance.

As a relational and trauma -informed therapist, cultivating trust, safety and comfort is a top priority.
Welcome. Are you feeling misunderstood or perhaps not feeling heard? My intention is to offer a non-judgmental space to talk through past and present feelings and situations that may be uncomfortable, painful, stressful or overwhelming. I most often work with those who feel stuck due to anxiety, depression, trauma , life transitions, ADHD, grief/loss or folks wanting to engage in identity exploration. Reaching out for and participating in therapy may seem daunting; however, part of my role is to help work through any uneasiness or apprehension. ​

My work as a therapist is deeply rooted in connection. Creating a safe space is essential in order to explore and uncover unconscious thoughts and feelings. Considering important aspects of connection such as attachment style, communication, and intimacy can enhance not only the relationship with one’s self, but also with others. I am passionate about working with individuals who have survived trauma , live with anxiety, depression, grief, codependence, as well as interpersonal and internal conflict.

My expertise in relational trauma offers me a roadmap to support you, individually or as a couple, in identifying the patterns of protection and survival that got you this far.
Safe and sexy connection with self and others is paramount. Many of us struggle to feel secure in our relationships, both with ourselves and intimate others. This can prevent us from living joyful, authentic lives. It can also lead us to shamefully ask ourselves “what’s wrong with me/us?” I aim to help you shift the question to “what happened to me/us, and how do we grow from here?” We’ll be a great fit if you find yourself striving for perfection, never feeling good enough, seeking reassurance or are stuck in "go mode." I enjoy helping folks reclaim and nurture parts of themselves they’ve denied or rejected out of fear and shame.

As a trauma -informed therapist, I believe developing trust and safety within the therapeutic relationship is crucial to doing meaningful work together. For this reason, I strive to bring warmth and authenticity to my sessions with the goal of supporting clients in feeling truly seen and heard. In graduate school, I trained in feminist therapy which has informed my belief that clients are experts of their own experience and given me a deep understanding of how identity and oppression relate to one’s mental health. I am particularly interested in working with my clients around trauma , grief/loss, and relationships.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
