I am poly and kink affirming, sex-positive, and a Health at Every Size practitioner.
I work from a client-centered, justice-oriented framework, and utilize evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as attachment work, trauma-informed therapies, strengths-based therapy, and EMDR. My passion in treatment is to create a collaborative relationship built on authenticity, hope, and safety to make space for you to be your whole self and access healing. I believe in the power of integration- that all parts of you deserve love and compassion. Together, we will address feelings, needs, beliefs, and the body's own wisdom, while also seeing issues in the context of the systems in which you exist.

Sometimes life can be challenging... therapy may help you to process experiences, memories, relationships, thoughts or feelings that cause discomfort or pain. Perhaps you lost your balance or have a longer term issue you need to manage. We recognize the importance of the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for positive change; and our approach is client-centered and interpersonal, yet solution focused and evidenced based. We are very empathic therapists and our safe, confidential, and non-judgmental therapies will make it easier for you to explore your world.

On most days, you’re the one giving the help, not asking for it. You are the person your family, coworkers, and friends come to when there is a crisis or they need advice. After years of being the rock for loved ones, on top of trying to manage your own life, you now find yourself exhausted, feeling depleted, and struggling to maintain this role you've performed for so long. You feel like you're on the edge - if you don’t do something now you worry you’ll unravel.

Therapy can be an enriching, comforting, transformative experience. However, it may also feel intimidating, vulnerable, and exhausting. As a psychotherapist, I am here to support you through all of these complex feelings. Therapy is not one-size-fits-all. I believe that effective psychotherapy must be client-centered and adapted to honor each client’s needs, identities, and comfort levels. I believe in meeting clients where they are at, while also supporting them in developing and accomplishing goals.

I became drawn to the work of therapy after many years of working in social justice movements, and seeing how relationships hold the power and potential to change the world. I particularly enjoy working with people who use drugs, queer and trans folks, and people doing social movement work from a harm reduction and trauma-informed perspective. As a therapist, I believe you have the tools and skills necessary to heal yourself, and our work in therapy is to uncover them together. I'm interested in the intersections of healing and liberation, and am excited to explore with you how your own healing contributes to a liberated future.

You Don’t Have to Go Through Life’s Struggles Alone Often in life, our journey towards growth and happiness becomes obstructed by our past experiences. Additionally, current experiences, stressors, and traumas, can impact our mental health and well-being. Our unmanaged fear, trauma, anxiety, and depression can leave us feeling like we are not worthy of happiness or positive relationships. These underlying thoughts impact our actions and emotions and can impact our quality of life and mental health. However, you do not have to face these challenges alone.

As a clinician, I aim to provide space for people to mindfully connect with their values in order to develop a more fulfilling and values-driven approach to life. My goal is to help each client start making progress starting with their very first session. We may not solve all of your concerns in one session, of course, however, we can assess, start formulating a plan, and begin the process to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. I believe psychotherapy works best when a collaborative and trusting relationship serves as its foundation, and this is what I aim to foster with all clients.

Prioritizing our mental and emotional health can seem unmanageable at times, but I find we are the most capable when connected to those who wish to see us flourish and prosper. Using a culturally sensitive lens, I strive to demonstrate an honest sense of curiosity for who you are as an individual in all facets of your being.

I love to work collaboratively to explore one’s personal experiences and identity to help facilitate healing and self-growth. I have experience working with clients who have struggled with a wide range of mental health disorders including PTSD, substance use, and positive identity formulation. In addition to art therapy interventions, I use other counseling techniques in an eclectic approach, integrating mindfulness, CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic theory. As an art therapist, I also identify as an artist. This provides my clients many opportunities to learn more about themselves while also learning art skills.

I believe that therapy is a healing process. We find the parts of ourselves that need healing to get to who we want to be and how we want to live. I believe that everyone has the ability to create those changes. In therapy, I focus on providing a safe space and joining you in this work, because I believe that much of healing needs to happen in relationship. My approach is relational, person-centered, and trauma-informed. That means I think the therapeutic relationship is a means of healing, that I allow you to lead the process, and that I am aware of how much trauma can impact our lives. I practice from a social justice lens.

The majority of my training and work experience has specifically focused on the assessment and treatment of psychological trauma. I believe my job is to walk alongside my clients as they unpack their traumatic experiences, while providing continued safety and validation, all at their own pace. I have extensive experience in evidence based treatments for PTSD and have been successful in treating a wide variety of individuals. I have also completed specialized training in maternal mental health. I treat women dealing with mental health issues that come up during and after pregnancy, such as anxiety, depression, and OCD. I also help women navigate pregnancy loss, infertility, and traumatic births. As a mother myself, I am passionate about working with other mothers struggling with mental health issues related to pregnancy or the postpartum period.

Are you and/or your child struggling with stress, depression, irritability, worry, relationship issues, identity issues? That's something that therapy can help with. Especially in the last two years, race and ethnicity as well as sexual orientation and gender identity have come into the forefront of our minds. Part of the mission of our practice is to support you in processing how being you in our society affects how you feel about yourself and ultimately your mental health. We want our clients to learn to appreciate the unique gifts that they bring as they process past experiences.
