Our innate impulse is to heal, just as one can observe in nature. Sometimes though, our access to this resiliency is an ever winding path...with circumstances (events, relationships, socio-political climate) and behaviors impacting our ability to fulfill this impulse. In therapy with me, we will creatively collaborate to rediscover this path. We will hold your innate wisdom and resiliency alongside the parts that feel incongruent, sticky, stubborn and shameful--honoring that each part is communicating or responding to something, past and/or present. We will learn how to find balance in the fullness of you.

Racism, harassment, brutality, microaggressions affect our levels of self-esteem, anxiety and depression. You're feeling shame and embarrassment. You are reeling from the shock, anger and pain and find it difficult to talk to others. You are experiencing trauma, and reliving it in your mind and alone. Telling those who may not understand, often makes it worse. I help and support those who've been affected by inequality of all forms, especially stemming from racism.

My approach is collaborative and active. I balance making therapy challenging at times, yet playful enough so that you will want to come back. My clients say this therapy-on-the-move is easier than a traditional sit-on-a-couch scenario in which the confinement of the room can get in the way of the work. I think for some people — especially teens & young adults — the idea of sitting in a room with a therapist is antithetical to being in a space that is good for sharing tough stuff. All that said, the outdoor work is *part* of the practice, roughly 50% of our time together will likely be spent indoors.

Have you been feeling more on edge, sensitive, and stressed lately? From the outside it may look like you're holding it together but underneath it all you’re overwhelmed, exhausted, and you might even feel like you’re losing your mind sometimes. You know that you can’t keep this up and something’s got to change. Your stress and worry seems to be getting worse and it's starting to interfere with your day-to-day activities and your relationships. You just want to relax and feel more at peace, but you can’t help thinking about all of the “what if’s” and the worst case scenarios.

Starting therapy can be daunting, so I encourage you to reach out, even if you're uncertain where to start. I've witnessed profound impacts in my work with people, where shame becomes self acceptance and overwhelm becomes relief and ease. I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to experiencing marginality, societal oppression, or being shy. I also tend to work well with over achievers, sensitive introverts, and perfectionists struggling to find a stable sense of self worth. My practice is anti oppression and trauma informed.

As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits.
