I believe change happens through insight, by understanding how our past experiences and our context shape our present and future. As a therapist, I am warm, relaxed, and understanding. Together, my clients and I build a relationship that is unique and authentic. My office is a space that is safe and non-judgmental, where clients can explore whatever is on their mind in that moment.

In my 8 years of practice as a psychotherapist, I have worked with people facing many struggles, including surviving past trauma and abuse, feeling suicidal, and severe/chronic mental illness. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I have worked with many people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, nonbinary, and gender fluid, and have supported people through gender transition and accessing gender affirming health care. As a white therapist, when working with BIPOC clients, I use the frameworks of anti-racism and cultural humility, and strive to make space for talking about racism and racial differences.

I use supportive, insight-oriented and cognitive techniques in order to help my clients identify the source of their dissatisfaction, and begin to pursue a more fulfilling life. Beginning therapy takes courage. However, it is very often a relief to gain perspective on issues that at present may feel overwhelming or unmanageable. I see therapy as an opportunity to find relief from distress, and to find lasting, sustainable improvement in the quality of your life.

The path of change, growth and healing undoubtedly requires courage and vulnerability. Many of these strengths are called upon even in deciding to start therapy, as doing so can evoke fear, concern and/or embarrassment. While these feelings are very real, they may also drown out the voice saying you’re worthy of being supported, heard and understood. I’d like you to take this opportunity to recognize and appreciate your commitment and bravery to yourself, and know that it is this commitment, alongside my commitment to you, that will guide you towards becoming your best self.
