Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

I use a trauma informed and mindful approach in my work which means we will let your process unfold at your own pace, perhaps slowing down in moments to get a more embodied sense of your experience. I have worked extensively with youth (ages 12+), adult individuals, and various relationship/family configurations.

I view the relationship between client(s) and therapist as sacred, and paramount to your healing, thus, I support you in finding the right fit. I approach my relationships with clients as a collaborator and as a witness to their processes. This means I will invite your experience both out in the world and also as it's unfolding during our sessions.
