Coping with life's challenges can be difficult. Working with someone who is compassionate and knowledgeable can help to navigate unfamiliar territory. I help clients to draw on their own resources in achieving their goals and assist clients in developing their full potential. 20+ years in working with couples has provided the needed background in helping couples learn new ways of communicating with and relating to each other. Certified in EMDR, I also bring expertise to those who have undergone trauma , abuse or neglect, reprocessing negative beliefs and distressing emotions.

It is my honor to walk alongside those ready to live free from systemic oppression, racial trauma , and colonization.
Our lives our deeply interconnected. There are moments when structures and roots of inequity serve as a barrier to access to reach one's full potential, purpose, and connection with self and others. As a human, you hold value and power and are keenly aware of the acute and chronic challenges you may face. Perhaps its impact on the ability to properly attach, heal, and thrive individually and in community with others has touched your life. You may be looking for someone to help provide space and tools for you to reclaim your own identity, narrative, and power.

My approach with clients is person-centered & trauma informed.
My therapeutic approach is compassionate, validating, and empathic. I believe that everyone wants to feel heard, understood, valued, and validated and I work with you to gain an understanding of who you are and what you want. I believe therapy is a very personal journey and I strive to ensure every client feels incredible support. I believe that therapy is a healing process. We find the parts of ourselves that need healing to lead us to a better quality of life. I work with all races, sexual orientations, and genders. A favorite quote that I relate to therapy is, "Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyway."

I have extensive experience in providing trainings about mental health, suicide prevention, the intersection of faith and psychology, trauma and resiliency, and coping with anxiety.
In C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia there is a scene with a young girl named Lucy where she hears about a heroic lion named Aslan. She learns that he brings much needed hope and peace, but he is also described as strong and fierce. This prompts Lucy to ask if the lion is “safe.” The response to her is, “No… ‘course he isn’t safe. But he is good.” Choosing to start therapy (or return again), is a lot like this exchange. It can be scary to open up your hopes, fears, shame, disappointments, or trauma . But, it is good, and if you choose to take this courageous step I would be honored to walk alongside you in your healing.

My focus is on perinatal/maternal mental health, life transitions, trauma , self-esteem, and mood disorders.
A therapist allows you the space to safely speak your truth, explore your identity and what that means to you, and learn how to approach life with that knowledge. You might be going through life transitions and adjustments such as changes in relationships, living situations, or career. You might be a mother trying to navigate through your new or continuing role, experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety, or trying to recover from loss. You might want to heal wounds left from past traumas and gain insight into how you can move forward. Together we can embark on a journey of healing, knowledge, and self-discovery.
