I provide culturally responsive individual psychotherapy to adults of all ages. I work collaboratively with clients from a relational/psychodynamic framework, but I am also skilled working in a more structured way to address specific and short-term goals. Above all, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the central element in treatment. The relationship is the medium by which therapy helps clients foster a strong sense of self-worth and identity, increase happiness and life satisfaction, improve the quality of their relationships, and understand their feelings, motives, and behavior.

I strongly value relationships and utilize a client centered approach with everyone who walks through my door. I am open and honored to hear feedback from clients so I can best meet their needs. I am cognizant that systems of oppression are present everywhere, even in the therapy room. As a white therapist, I am committed to the ongoing antiracism work needed to address how these systems impact my own work on an individual level and systemically. I view therapy as a partnership and want my clients to feel safe and open when in my presence. The client is the expert in the room.

We all deserve to be happy and fulfilled in our relationships. However, healthy and meaningful relationships do not come without work. Whether it is with your intimate partner, friends, family or coworkers, the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our mental health. I help individuals understand how their past experiences, sometimes traumatic, impact their present struggles related to anxiety, stress or depression, and often interfere with their ability to cultivate and maintain relationship satisfaction.

Therapy is about building a meaningful, caring relationship between the client and therapist. These bonds develop when both are fully present, engaged, and invested in the clinical work. It's most beneficial when clients and therapists work collaboratively to evaluate, challenge, and reconstruct systems-- all of which lead to a healthier and more meaningful life. My success in providing treatment comes from my honesty and genuine interest in who my clients are and what motivates them. Clients respond well to my sense of humor and the secure space I create to feel comfortable in disclosing personal issues of concern.

Let me help you develop coping skills for various issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, career-related issues, teen issues, twentysomething issues, attachment and family issues, and relationship challenges. I use directness with warmth, compassion, support, and laughter to create a judgment-free zone where you can be yourself and take off the "mask." Sure therapy can be tough at times, but also enjoyable and rewarding when you see the progress you are making.

You have the power to make changes in your life! You may not yet know how, but I am here to help you figure this out. Dishes have piled up, relationships are suffering, and avoidance shows up even when it comes to things you enjoy. Sometimes situations change and pose new challenges; at other times situations remain the same and lead to feeling stagnant and stuck. Whatever your unique case might be, today can be the beginning of feeling more effective in your life. It is courageous to acknowledge that you might benefit from learning new tools and insights.

I understand the healing process as one of self-determination through therapeutic empathy. Being curious while employing sensitive honesty makes me a good fit for people who are open to exploring deeper personal and interpersonal connections. The lens of attachment, psychodynamic theory, and existential thought within ecological and systemic perspectives help me appreciate the pressures that impact quality of life issues. I am interested in working with individuals, couples, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds who find themselves struggling in relationships, depression, anxiety, complex trauma, psychosis, and grief/loss.
