I am an ecotherapist working on Piscataway Territory (Annapolis, MD) at Anchored Hope Therapy. I am passionate about helping people heal complex and transgenerational trauma through the therapeutic relationship. I am equally as passionate about decolonization and ecotherapy. This often means reclaiming and repairing your human-nature relationship, learning to re-humanize the process of therapy, the therapist and the client, and learning how systems of oppression impact your sense of wellness and wholeness. I believe that your identities impact you and how you relate to the world around you, including the natural world.

My client-centered, strength-based approach empowers and motivates my clients to direct the pace and trajectory of therapy. I assist my clients with identifying their goals for treatment, as well as the constraints preventing them from achieving them. As the therapeutic process unfolds, we work together to determine how to remove the constraints—and sometimes explore how they got there in first place. I am knowledgeable about and comfortable with a wide range of therapeutic models and interventions, all of which offer useful tools for understanding how problems originate, as well as how to effect positive change here and now.
