I believe everyone has the potential for growth. Sometimes circumstances, trauma, unhelpful thinking, or other challenges can hinder that process. My clinical practice focuses on individual therapy with adults. I see the various aspects of a client’s life such as social, spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and financial/work as interconnected. I have clinical experience working with clients experiencing trauma, chronic pain, anxiety, grief, depression, relationship issues , and life transitions.

Therapy is an opportunity for self-reflection and personal growth that requires a compassionate and safe therapeutic relationship . I practice from an insight- oriented approach that allows for an increased awareness of past and current relational patterns. Together we will examine these patterns, develop tools, and find ways to respond differently in order to alleviate immediate stress while also creating lasting change.

During this time of uncertainty, experiences of isolation, loss, and being stifled by our environments can make it difficult to focus on and do daily tasks. Are these issues that you’re facing? Have you struggled to stay connected to others, or to be understood and supported by people in your life? Maybe you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed, whether it’s your relationship (s), your living environment, or your own feelings and behaviors. I work to meet people where they’re at and create an affirming space that supports those struggling with a variety of life stresses to make sense of these issues and find direction for moving forward.

People come to therapy because of depression, anxiety, conflict, or trauma. Because of a broken relationship . Because life is devoid of joy, or stressful and overwhelming. Or because something has happened -- a death, loss of a job, a harrowing experience -- upsetting the way they see themselves, their relationships, even the world around them. To paraphrase Lao Tzu, people come to therapy because they recognize that if they don't change direction, they will end up where they are going. My job is to help them change their direction.

I am also passionate about social justice and how privilege and power impact the therapeutic relationship .
I believe therapy is a collaborative process and invite feedback at all stages of our work. I bring to therapy my previous experiences working in creative environments, to help clients foster new perspectives and solutions that fit your unique struggles, identities, and personality. My clients have come from diverse backgrounds and many have experienced abuse, loss, and/or marginalization. Therapy can offer some immediate relief from stress, depression, and anxiety, but I also work with clients to make lasting changes in the way you see and relate to yourself and others. I work with university students, couples, and adults.

I am a licensed acupuncturist who treats the unique relationship between the mind and body in a holistic way that offers clients the best opportunity for growth.
I've found it helpful in my practice to be direct and to the point, while maintaining professional and nurturing relationships with my clients. I believe strongly in modeling healthy boundaries, and helping clients to strengthen their own. I love what I do, and I know my clients can sense that. I think my clients can also sense the great respect I have for them. Asking for help is never easy. Especially when one feels vulnerable.

My approach is founded upon the relationship I have with each client. I create a safe, comfortable environment by providing empathy, genuineness, and a sense of humor, and work collaboratively with each client to meet their unique goals. I help clients to identify, express, and understand emotions so that they may better manage them. Therapy can also aid in understanding and changing patterns in relationships that may contribute to distress. I welcome conversations with clients about our relationship , as this can be very useful in shedding light on other relationships in their lives.

It's okay to talk about it. Life often brings unexpected events and difficult challenges that leave us feeling lost and unsure. Grief, trauma, relationship struggles, life transition, work-related issues, addiction, existential or spiritual doubts, and persistent feelings of guilt, shame, and inadequacy. These experiences can be demoralizing and defeating but also provide an immense opportunity for growth.

Areas I specialize in include suicidality, substance/process addictions (gambling), kink, financial therapy, medical family therapy (end of life/memory loss), gender identify/sexuality, life transitions, & relationship difficulties.
All of us yearn for a sense of belonging, and it is human to feel lonely due to issues we may be facing in life. Feeling alone can have a detrimental impact not only to our mental/emotional health, but also physical health. I'm here to support you in your mental health journey and working towards a better quality of life. I strive for social justice and am attuned to the impacts and influences of society and culture. I approach therapy from a trauma-informed and harm reduction lens, meaning I’m sensitive to the past experiences that have shaped you into who you are today while working in a collaborative approach.

It is not always easy to reach out to a stranger for help, yet you know you are ready to make a change in your life. My focus is on helping clients by understanding systemic or external factors that may impact your relationship with yourself and others. With that understanding we then work together to use that understanding to influence how we treat ourselves and engage the world around us.

We Are Here to Help You Solve Problems. Let's face it sometimes everyone needs a little help when things get rough. But not everyone has time to commit to a rigid, long-term therapeutic regimen - some people need to seek help on their own terms. I have created a therapeutic environment that is conversational, flexible, and extremely transparent. I specialize in utilizing personal therapy as a medium for conflict resolution. Put simply, we use time and conversation to help you solve your problems, no matter what they are - depression, anxiety, relationship issues , family conflicts, or anything else.

I am interested in clients who take initiative with their therapy,and who hold curiosity about themselves and the world. Helping the client feel empowered about therapy and have increased insight are some of my goals when working within a therapeutic framework.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
