"My approach to therapy is based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present and self-compassion teaches how to be a friend and ally to ourselves no matter what. I offer a warm and safe relationship, good old fashioned listening, and skills to improve effective communication, managing and learning from emotions, self-acceptance, compassion, and connecting with and living your values. Mindfulness-based therapy is practical, evidence-based, and it works. You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. You can make positive changes, heal, grow, and thrive."

"Many of us internalize messages from society about how our lives are supposed to look and when our circumstances don't measure up, we experience a lot of guilt and shame. Often times we fail to recognize the inherent wisdom and problem-solving skills we hold inside ourselves; I can help to revive them. I understand the courage and vulnerability it takes to enter a therapy room with strong feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, or isolation. My style is warm, empowering, and collaborative; I offer a safe, non-judgmental space welcoming clients to explore and be their authentic selves."

"You will know you are living an authentic and empowered life when you are mostly happy. This does not mean life won't have challenges, but your ability to navigate them will be easier. Finding a therapist with whom you can share all of yourself - grief, disappointment, shame, anger, anxiety, etc is essential to healing. Trust takes time to build and confidentiality and a non-judgmental environment focused on your goals for therapy will help you get there. Art therapy can be a way to express what is inside, as well as be a tool for healing. I work with teens, adults, and families."

"***Waitlist****Living in a world filled with poverty, marginalization, and oppression can feel daunting and make people feel as though they have little agency. Therapy can be a helpful place to explore the places in our lives where we do have agency, where we are able to make tangible changes-often times this is in our interpersonal relationships. As a therapist, I approach my work from a relational cultural perspective, a theory grounded in the exploration of identities, oppression, intersectionality, and their impact on social and emotional functioning."

"I believe that growth occurs when an individual is provided with an empathic, supportive, and safe environment to share his or her experiences. I seek to empower my clients, through deepened self-awareness, to explore what may be missing in their lives, identify impediments to obtaining those needs, and experiment with how those needs could be realized. Ultimately, I seek to create an environment where clients can foster a greater sense of purpose and meaning in their lives, and open up new channels of energy and creativity to meet the demands of their lives."

"We can sometimes feel uncertain and trapped by painful emotions. Having a non-judgmental, supportive space to think through what feels wrong can be helpful. We are able to make new meaning when someone listens, helps us focus in on what is important, understands our challenges, and supports us to grasp more of who we really are. We begin to understand our own stories and shed new light on older, outdated narratives. We untangle from the repetitive pain we impose on our selves, family, partners, friends, and begin to take charge of our lives."
