Many of us are navigating systems that were not designed to nourish us, and growing through hardships that leave us feeling isolated and overwhelmed. I work to help people (especially LGBTQ people, BIPOC, and Neurodivergent people) understand how therapy (e.g. acceptance, emotion regulation, interpersonal skills, stress-reduction, trauma work, value-driven action) can be applied to overcome and liberate. I also specialize in managing Bipolar Disorder, OCD/OCD-spectrum disorders, PTSD, & Social Anxiety. By enhancing your strengths, reworking coping mechanisms, and reframing beliefs about yourself, you can find peace and joy.
Using trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, organizational skills, exposure, problem-solving, dialectical behavior therapy skills (distress tolerance, core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation), we can enhance relaxation, confidence, mood-management, and strengths-focused empowerment.
We all benefit from additional perspective and a space to process thoughts and experiences to make sense of chaos. Additionally, I hope to provide a plethora of coping skills that will decrease your distress with time, increase your sense of emotional connection and control, and unite your mind, body and intent to provide a meaningful and fulfilling life.
