Stress and trauma can take many forms. Sometimes we survive an event such as a car accident, wildfire, assault, or military-related event. Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships. The experience of trauma can significantly impact how we change or grow in each present moment, how we connect and separate from others, and how we experiment, take risks, and resource our creativity. Let's co-create a therapy relationship to support your work of creating loving relationships (with self and others) to fully participate in the world.

My specialty areas include working with adult survivors of trauma; issues in relationships and relating with others; issues of oppression/ discrimination/ intersections of identities; LGBTQ+ and poly/kink folks; self-care for activists and helping professionals, immigrants, asylum seekers; imposter syndrome, and using mindfulness from socially engaged Buddhist tradition.

Additionally, I am formally trained in EMDR and Clinical Hypnosis. I personally identify as queer, feminist, White anti-racist, cisgender woman (and trans-affirmative), Arab-American, and social justice activist. I find that being transparent about these identifiers with potential clients can contribute to building trust and safety.
