My passion is to come alongside caregivers of all forms because often that is the person who also needs individual care and connection to keep going. Caregiver fatigue is real but is not easily recognized. This can look like depression, anxiety, irritability, or overwhelm. Self-care can feel excessive, impractical or maybe just one more thing on your to-do list. It's not, it is necessary! I love working within the frameworks of Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but we can explore other options as we go that resonate with you. How can I support you?

Additionally I include the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, ACT, and mindfulness /guided meditation.
At different points in life we can find ourselves "stuck," overwhelmed, defeated, or feeling disconnected from self or others. Social media has added another challenge for us to navigate while seeking connection. Therapy is an opportunity to make positive changes in one's life and relationships. By gaining an understanding of our needs, motives, and fears we can move out of an "auto-pilot" mode and into an active role in our lives. I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self to be more aware of their choices in order to work to defeat the obstacles creating distress.

I have focused my work on supporting queer and trans people and people of color. The clients who tend to be the best fit for my clinical approach tend to be people who are looking to be pushed, who want to build self-awareness, and want to change their relationship with their younger selves. They are asking the questions, "Who I am in this world?" or "How do I heal from the violence of the world?" or "How do I do things differently?" They want to build meaningful lives, practice gratitude and mindfulness , and alleviate suffering by offering themselves understanding and self-nurture.

I incorporate practical tools for clarifying and strengthening my client's existing strengths, including mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral approaches.
I’m grateful to have this opportunity to connect with you. The therapeutic process is a sacred journey. Here we can share in a safe, non-judgmental place. If we have suffered addiction, anxiety, depression or trauma we can uncover the aspects of ourselves that need healing. The quality of our lives is directly connected to the quality of our relationships - with ourselves and with others. When our relationships are suffering, everything is impacted. For that reason, in our therapy sessions we explore whatever is unfolding in your relationships and we discover how to bring awareness and skill to these crucial connections.

Therapy is about finding someone who "gets you", someone who can build trust and help you find your truth at an ever deeper level. I focus on attachment history, trauma, values and early experiences along with mindfulness practice, using the wisdom of the body to awaken to needs and emotions. Symptoms represent our wiring and our way of coping with the world. Getting past that takes a challenging, gentle, fully present partnership. I work with adults, high performers and college/grad students. Hearing each unique path -finding ways to stay alive and awake and engaged in this world on fire.
