This world, this life, is pretty absurd when we think about it. We're on a giant rock floating in the vast universe, not knowing why we're here and how to navigate it all. I want to be there for people trying to find a way to forge their path through life and find some joy, contentment, humor, and purpose along the way. I work with individuals and couples who are seeking out therapy to work on finding relief from relationship stress, depression, anxiety, and/or trauma, whether it's linked to past experiences or because of current stressors in their lives.

Compassionate courage lives at the intersection of a supportive, safe environment and a willingness to kindly challenge yourself, and it is what I wish to provide for you. Actively questioning the ideas of “normalcy,” I work with you to unravel what assumptions you may have about yourself or the world around you. As we work together, I will help you contextualize our discoveries socially, developmentally, culturally, and biologically.

You're sure the average therapist can't handle or accept you, because that's what you get everywhere else you go. School, work, almost everywhere, it's been an uphill struggle to fit in and feel understood -- IF you even bother anymore. If you DO find YOUR people, YOUR tribe, you spend the whole time secretly terrified they'll figure out you're not good enough and kick you out. You've been burned a few too many times, which just reinforces your belief that you'll never belong. All that rejection and pain sits in your body and spirit, grinding you down every day. But there's still part of you that believes you can find your place.

I see life as a mosaic of experiences, and we all do the best we can with what we know at the time. But sometimes, anxiety, depression or the simple challenges of daily life can hold people back from living the fullest, best story of their life. My goal as a therapist is to explore and bring to light a person’s inner strengths, so they can overcome their personal obstacles and enjoy better, more productive lives and relationships. Everyone, regardless of life’s stumbles, deserves the best life they can imagine, and my goal is to walk with them and help them along this journey.

Relationships have the potential to be great sources of meaning and connection, and yet, sometimes they can be confusing and stressful.

Together we can name, process, and explore things that may keep you feeling stuck, like systemic barriers, abuse, traumatic experiences, relationship patterns, and self-limiting beliefs. I strive to provide a respectful space for curiosity and expression to help clients strengthen bonds and gain clarity around their relationship norms and expectations.

Becoming a parent often brings up a wide range of emotions. Sometimes it is the long awaited reward after struggling with infertility, or bearing the grief of miscarriage and loss. Sometimes it is the excitement of adding to a growing family. Sometimes it is the fear of reliving physical, emotional, or mental pain and hardship. Sometimes it is grappling with the societal and cultural expectations of parenting. The experiences that arise for parents during conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenting deserve a space for specialized care and attention. This specialized care is what I offer in support of your goals.

My style is to support you in connecting with and understanding your deepest agendas and to facilitate the expansion of your capacity to live authentically, with all the parts of yourself. Many people have an intuition of when it's time to make changes, but are uncertain about how to do this, or where to begin. I'll help you generate the right conditions for change by first working to thoroughly understand your inner landscape, and what it’s like to be you. I'll assist you in refining your own instruction manual, find a useful balance between acceptance and discipline, and live a life with more self-compassion.
