About

I work best with clients that desire a laid back, collaborative approach. Maybe you have goals in mind or need to process out loud to figure them out. My style is direct and casual, balanced with non-judgment and respect for your autonomy to support your authentic exploration and work towards connection, change, and healing. I have extensive experience with adolescents/young adults (ages 14-30), including queer, trans and nonbinary folks; parents; and adults navigating the general challenges of being a modern human in 2022.
At my core, I am a systemic therapist. I don't see problems inside people. A systems-approach acknowledges how ineffective or unhelpful patterns as well as imbalances of power and systemic oppressions can create "symptoms" in any of us. It emphasizes a focus to the future rather than digging through analysis of the past.
It can feel overwhelming to scroll through endless profiles and websites to find a therapist. The client-therapist relationship is a powerful factor in how therapy works for you. Let's schedule a consultation, and trust your instincts to determine if I am a good fit for you.
