My primary specialty is working with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and emotional abuse.
I know how scary it can be to share yourself with someone new, and I want to make you feel as seen and safe as possible. My therapy approach draws upon feminist and relational systems theory to empower you to make the changes you’re looking for. Together, we will explore your past experiences, your relationship patterns, and where you are emotionally, right now. With empathy, validation, and a dash of humor, I help you tap into your strength and live in a more authentic way.

Trauma is, by definition, an experience that overwhelms our ability to cope. In the aftermath, people often struggle with depression, anxiety, dissociation, relationship issues, grief, and substance abuse. Our area of focus includes working with survivors of sexual violence ( assault , child sexual abuse , and incest), intimate partner violence, adult survivors of child abuse (emotional, physical, sexual, neglect), family of origin trauma, and intergenerational trauma. We recognize the impact that trauma has on our nervous systems and ability to manage the chaos of life. At times, ways of coping can become issues in the present.

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 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 ever feel like the support of your family and friends is not enough? You don't have to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder to benefit from therapy. Many people turn to therapy for help with everyday life issues: relationship problems, anxiety, and self-doubt. Others seek therapy during difficult times such as sexual abuse and grief. In order to reap the benefits of therapy it's important that you choose the right therapist- someone you can trust, who makes you feel valued with the experience to help you overcome emotional challenges and make changes for the better in your life.
