I have worked with many individuals, to include people struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse. As a queer cis woman, I specialize in serving the LBGTQ+ population. I have a laid back approach, and believe in the importance of building rapport with the people I serve. Life on life's terms can be challenging, and you do not have to face it alone.

If you’ve found your way to this site (and, let’s be real…if you’re a human being), I know life has handed you or your child many stressors and challenges and you/they are likely experiencing strong or even overwhelming emotions - perhaps anxiety, sadness, outbursts or numbing, low self-worth. I believe many of our common difficulties stem from experiences of disconnection - with ourselves, others, and the natural world - and that what most of us are seeking is a path toward belonging, joy, a sense of calm, and meaning. These gifts of life grow when we connect deeply, inward & outward, and immerse ourselves in the world around us.

As humans, I believe we need a soft place to land. Being in the world brings with it a variety of feelings, thoughts, and sensations, but often we struggle to find space in our lives to process these experiences. I believe the connection and safety offered through individual therapy creates an opportunity to name the parts of us that feel painful or confusing or joyful — to allow us to move toward greater self-acceptance by noticing and being heard.

Finding the right therapist is an important and sometimes difficult process. I suggest an initial consultation for you to meet me, discuss your concerns and get a sense of who I am and our connection. My approach is nurturing, mindful and responsive to your unique situation. I emphasize self-reflection and understanding over pathology and believe that therapy works best as an active partnership. I will be doing my part well if you feel you can safely explore anything that comes up for you in our time together.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, sad, stressed or frustrated and don’t know what to do, therapy can help. Taking this first step takes courage but reaching out to an experienced counselor will put you on the path towards creating a more meaningful and intentional life. The struggles of day to day living can have a profound impact on fulfillment and leave you sometimes feeling incompetent and depleted. Juggling the demands of work, home, relationships and family can be exhausting. Learning to simplify, set boundaries and prioritize what is important is life-changing and sets the stage to shift from chaos to calm.

You have BIG feelings and always have. You are sensitive to your environment, tuned into the subtle nuances and energies of the people/world around you. You feel it in your gut. You sense it in your body. You were bullied, shamed, or invalidated for these feelings growing up – told you were too sensitive. You learned to doubt, squash, numb, or project those feelings onto other people and things as a way to stay safe in a world that doesn't have time for such things. You people-please, overwork, over-think, detach. You run from your feelings until they suddenly consume you. Disconnect or engulfed. You crave harmony inside and out.

You deserve to feel safe and secure in this world. You have had to experience trauma due to our systems, (ie racial and colonial trauma). You may also be someone who organizes to pivot and/or abolish the systems and ways that are causing us the harm in the first place. You recognize the impacts our dominant culture has on your and others' lives, and you want support moving through the consequences of these traumas. You also want to explore and embody practices to better honor your own capacity for continued connections.

I specialize in supporting people experiencing life changes both big and small. You felt like you had things figured out and were cruising along. Then you started realizing that you’re feeling drained, on edge, wasting time on mindless distractions, and feeling like you’ve lost your groove. Or maybe you noticed your relationships with others start to become strained, angry, or distant. I can support you in figuring out what’s causing those feelings, roadblocks, or relationship shifts, and how to get back to who you once were… only better!

Deep down, we all possess an inner wisdom and knowledge of what we need in order to heal. We often benefit from having someone to partner with during our healing process, which is how I see my role as a therapist. I work collaboratively with my clients to support them in healing from trauma, anxiety, disordered eating, and body image issues. I am also passionate about supporting people who consider themselves to be highly sensitive as they are experiencing overwhelm or burnout.

I believe in feelings. YOUR feelings. Usually, people come to me with emotions like overwhelm, isolation and invisibility. They say, “I’m afraid I’m a failure,” and “I don’t think I’m doing this right.” My job is to spark curiosity about your inner landscape. I support your gradual unfolding: learning to metabolize and negotiate feeling states, becoming mindful of the present moment, and locating patterns that you might not even be aware of. I help people understand the nature of attachment, the physiology of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period, and how authentic connection nourishes our psyche and promotes long-term health.
