My goal is to assist people in making sense of change so that we can learn from it, rather than feel bogged down by it. If you've felt overwhelmed, if the things that used to get you through the day aren't cutting it anymore, and if you've realized it's time for something to change: give me a call. I work with folks navigating issues of identity and change within relationships, orientation, and spirituality. I support those trying to learn and heal from past histories of trauma . I also serve fellow therapists who have, understandably, recognized their own need for additional support in unprecedented times.

My professional goal is to support clients in making changes towards greater mental and emotional strength and ease. Clients tell me I am warm, empathic, funny, relational, and direct.

I also have an extensive background in mind/body work especially valuable in the treatment of trauma and anxiety.
By picking up the phone and contacting a therapist, you've taken the hardest step: a coming to an awareness that you would like to affect change in your life. I believe in an interactive, dynamic approach where together we explore the history of an issue, it's effects and most importantly, institute a positive plan for change.

There is something keeping you from having the happy, fulfilling life you crave. Anxiety about your career is causing performance issues at work. Is it keeping you from enjoying life outside of work? Maybe stress is keeping you from sleeping. Your anxiety is relentless and exhausting. Perhaps a past sexual assault or other trauma is making it difficult to have the healthy relationship you crave. It is making it hard to trust yourself and others. Or maybe you just can't get over that break-up. You're in a demanding career or caregiver role that has you burned out. You can't get away from low self-esteem and self-doubt.

Do you live in your head where you rethink all that you do? Is it hard to sleep at night due to life's stressors? Are you seeking direction and purpose in your life? Wearing a mask to exist through life can be draining and hard to maintain. On the other hand, developing the courage to share your true feelings authentically and inner emotions can be liberating. Therapy is where you can create positive habits and rituals to help manage stressors, heal trauma , and live a healthy life. Living with intentionality takes strength, awareness, and daily practice.

I operate from a strengths-based, empowerment, and trauma -informed therapeutic style.
I believe that being a therapist is a privilege. I understand that starting therapy or beginning to see a new therapist can be a vulnerable experience and it is an act of self-compassion. When a person has experienced trauma or is undergoing life challenges, it can be difficult to see a path forward. My role as a therapist is to assist you in finding ways to look ahead and to live a life that feels more aligned with yourself.

I strive to provide an overall trauma -informed approach that is inclusive of all identities.
Making the decision to pursue therapy is not an easy one and I want to honor the vulnerability it takes to share your life with a therapist. I strive to build a genuine, non-judgmental connection with my clients to validate your life experiences and create a safe space where you can begin a journey of self-discovery. This may take time and is not always easy, but I want to collaborate with you every step of the way to ensure that we are working together in a way that best supports you.

I am experienced in treating individuals dealing with life transitions, OCD, addictions, trauma , self esteem issues, anxiety and depression.
Speaking to someone about your most intimate struggles can be daunting, and I appreciate the vulnerability that goes along with opening up about yourself and your experiences. With this in mind, my goal is to create a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore what is no longer serving you. Working with a counselor can be empowering, as it will allow you to increase self-awareness and make meaningful life changes. Together, we can explore patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that may be preventing you from reaching your full potential.
