I work with men and women around issues of health, anger, addiction, trauma , sexuality, mood, career and relationships. Typically, clients come to see me complaining about a lack of "joy" in their lives. They recognize repeating patterns of failed relationships at home, work or with others. While professionally successful many of my clients have difficulty feeling "healthy" in ways that are often difficult to fully articulate or understand. My clients are looking to understand why they feel and behave the way they do and how they can translate that understanding into feeling better and improved relationships within their lives.

I utilize attachment-based therapy to help clients heal from trauma and begin to create stronger and healthier relationships with their loved ones.
These last few years have been really hard on our Bodies. So many of us feel more disconnected from ourselves. Your Body deserves to take up space - the world needs your voice and your story. My goal is that my clients can find a place to rest in our work together and to be fully authentically themselves. My specializations are in working with teenagers and young adults who may be neurodivergent, exploring gender identity and/or sexual orientation, healing from complex childhood trauma , and/or religious trauma , or looking to heal their relationship with food and their Bodies.

I specialize in trauma care and integrate Narrative Therapy, CBT, EMDR, and IFS-informed (parts) therapy.
You deserve to be happy. If you are like most of my clients, you may have experienced some painful event in the past that keeps you stuck. Others seek help with anxiety and depression that is blocking them from living the joyful life to which they aspire. Many of my clients say past traumas prevent them from having the type of deep fulfilling relationships which they are worthy of. These clients often describe therapy with me as being relaxed and friendly -- like talking with a confidant -- achieving gains through our sessions which they have not experienced previously.

I have 12+ years of clinical experience, and have specialized training in EMDR, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, trauma and attachment, pregnancy and infant loss, trauma -informed yoga, anxiety, caregiver burnout, birth trauma , infertility, postpartum rage, and reproductive and social justice.
Being a caregiver can be a landmine, and when that landmine gets tripped, it can look much different than just burnout. It can look like always doing and moving and worrying, because of a fear of everything falling apart if you slow down. It can look like feeling disconnected from or mistrusting of your body or emotions. It can look like self-sacrifice being a measure of your worth. It can look like rage, helplessness, and scary intrusive thoughts. And it can certainly feel like it's a YOU problem, when really, you may be responding the best you know how to an unsupportive environment.

I bring my knowledge and experience with me into every therapeutic relationship, regardless of what brings you to see me and whether you have experienced trauma or not.
I believe that every person possesses all the strengths and tools to achieve their healing goals, allowing them to thrive, and that it is my role to assist them in accessing and utilizing those strengths. In my past experience providing professional services to survivors of gender-based violence I have witnessed how profoundly trauma impacts the lives of those who experience it, as well as the lives of those who love them. I have been amazed at the strength and resilience of survivors and have seen the incredible capacity people have to heal, grow and change.

I specialize in helping adult individuals who struggle with eating disorders/ disordered eating patterns, trauma histories, anxiety, depression, and life transitions.
I believe that within each of us lies our truest essence of self. The all caps Y-O-U. I journey with my clients to help them uncover this place of all-knowing peace within in order to promote a mind, body, spirit connection. It takes a lot of courage to begin a search toward wellness. I honor that by creating a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate space for my clients to explore their thoughts, emotions, and behavioral patterns. Since everyone I meet has a unique set of experiences, I work flexibly to meet them where they are at.

My therapy practice is trauma -informed and pulls from various models and theories, including abolitionist, feminist and anti-racist frameworks.
NOTE: my practice is full for 2022 / I view therapy as one among many pathways to explore and be curious about ourselves and our lives. Our mental health is deeply impacted by our collective narratives, particularly in the context of our environment (e.g. home, community, land), our access to resources, and our experiences of privilege and oppression. Therefore our work together will be centered in your wholeness, examining and holding how all of these positions and experiences have shaped, and continue to shape, your life story and lived experience. What is the story you tell yourself about who you are?

Most of my clients' challenges stem from childhood trauma and negative pattern of thought, which typically leads to depression, anxiety and other trauma based symptoms. Clients are looking for a therapist who validates them and shows empathy, while being direct and honest. I try to ensure a safe-space for my clients, where we work together to prioritize their mental health so they can feel empowered in their life. I create a safe, trusting, and non-judgmental space where clients can share their unique struggles and change any maladaptive thoughts that might be holding them back.

Sometimes life throws us challenges that are too overwhelming to handle alone. As a trauma informed and culturally sensitive therapist, I understand the importance of allowing space and time for healing in a non-judgmental space. As your therapist, my priority is that you feel comfortable as we work through these difficulties together. My approach is collaborative, as your voice is equally important. This is your lived experience, and my role is to help guide and gently empower you towards realizing a better version of yourself.

Life can give us experiences of fun and excitement. At the same time, there are periods where day-to-day life becomes overwhelming. When these waves of overwhelm arrive, we can experience difficulty identifying ways to deal with our feelings. We may struggle in naming what we are feeling and subsequently experience a sense of impossibility and helplessness. Through my work with individuals and couples, I developed a repertoire of interventions to guide my clients who are struggling with relational issues, depression, anxiety, trauma , and emotional dysregulation.

I work with adults and teens who have experienced a trauma / PTSD , or who are facing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, body image issues, grief and loss, or major life changes.
I believe therapy should be a safe place for you to identify your innate strengths, deepen your sense of self, and find solutions for the things that challenge you in life. When I work with clients, I use a strengths-based and client-centered approach incorporated with empathy, acceptance and compassion. I whole-heartedly believe that sensitivity is power and being vulnerable is a form of strength.
