About

We are all just walking each other home. While I bring a deep love for/nerd out about how we become us, you know you best. You've got the map and say where to go — I empower you to navigate, process, unpack and heal. We will work to make connections, identify patterns/themes and reframe old stories that no longer serve you. I am also trained in EMDR & approach therapy through a trauma-informed, systemic, anti-oppression lens, practicing cultural humility. I am a visionary curator of transformative experiences. If you have tried therapy before and are still struggling and/or are ready to change your trajectory, call me.
I will help you create healthy coping skills and empower you to trust and believe in yourself, heal and transform. This begins when you are heard, seen and understood. You deserve this. I promise to be fully present. There are many internal and external intersections with mental wellness - no topics are off limits. Our time is yours.
Beyond fear is freedom. You are not broken. You are a badass. You have survived 100% of your worst days. Sometimes we will laugh, sometimes we may cry. In it all, it’s simply an honor to sit with you. Radical authenticity and human connection is everything. (If you are seeking a therapist that quietly nods a lot, I am not the one for you.)
