About

My work is centered around empowering womxn and gender diverse folx, especially those who have experienced interpersonal or cultural trauma. I have special interest and training in working with the adolescent/young adult population, those who have experienced religious trauma, survivors of narcissistic abuse, and those interested in psychedelic integration work. I help others develop more secure relationships with themselves and those around them, and work with your inner critic to unburden the parts of self that have developed as a response to trauma. I also offer ADHD evaluations in a limited capacity.
I offer psychotherapy for healing from developmental trauma and attachment wounding from a holistic and relational lens, using Internal Family Systems (IFS), Dialectical-Behavior Therapy (DBT), and both mindfulness-based and somatic approaches. I am currently completing training in Ketamine-Assisted Therapy (KAP) and a certificate in somatic trauma healing.
I understand how difficult it can be to be open and vulnerable with your heart when your experiences and emotions have not been responded to adequately. If you are struggling with feelings resulting from attachment wounding or relational anxiety, or want to find out more, please reach out to schedule a free 15-minute consultation with me.
