When your thoughts or actions do not match your feelings, or you find that certain relationships are a problem, it could be time to explore what hidden patterns might be impacting your life. Because you are always in relationship to those in your world, whether family, work, or with a significant other; it is important to find ways to calm overwhelming emotions, overcome negative feelings, develop effective communication skills and discover the real issues in your life. In a non-invasive therapy environment, together we will build permanent resources to support you in being who you truly want to be.

I work from psychodynamic and Internal Family Systems frameworks and can bring practices of embodiment, dreamwork & intuitive connection.
I enjoy working with individuals who are seeking lasting healing and therapeutic change. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, or overwhelm that is signaling the need for a different way of living and approaching your life. I believe patterns, old wounds, and intergenerational trauma live in our bodies and show up in many ways including in our relationships, feelings, thoughts, and physical sensations. We will work together to heal and integrate these through a therapeutic approach that is relational, embodied, spirit-oriented and attentive to the culture and larger systems we live in.

Using tools and perspectives from object relations theory, internal family systems therapy, ACT, and DBT we can help you to grow.
As a psychodynamic and attachment oriented therapist, I believe that the foundation of therapeutic treatment is a safe and supportive relationship between therapist and client. The process of treatment often uses the therapeutic relationship itself to uncover relational patterns from earlier in life that may be causing pain or dysfunction in the present day. By identifying the historical antecedent to a seemingly confusing or inappropriate emotional response, client and therapist are able to disrupt maladaptive patterns and choose new, more values congruent responses.

I work from an eclectic approach of gestalt, DBT, IFS , and Narrative to help uncover your unmet needs, and seek how to fulfill them in ways that serve you.
As a therapist, I foundationally work from the belief that all humans deserve to feel safe and at home in their bodies. In this messy world, we can often find ourselves not trusting our bodies and wanting to change them. Sometimes within that mess, people may find themselves coping in ways that do not address their deep, underlying needs. I believe in this therapeutic process, you can reconnect with those needs and serve them more intentionally, healing the deepest parts of yourself. My goal is not only to help you find that healing, but to also enjoy and accept the messiness along the way.

I have expertise in addressing sexual violence & the traumatic effects of systems (racism, sexism, homophobia etc). I encourage clients to nurture their inner voice, to gently observe what happens in the present moment, & to engage actively in the therapeutic process. My practice is poly, kink & sex worker affirming.

I draw on experiential approaches, including Gestalt, Focusing, and Internal Family Systems , as well as perspectives from contemporary psychodynamic therapies, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based therapies.
My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that we are all, at the deepest level, whole and complete; we all have wisdom, love, compassion, and the capacity for connection within us. My job as a therapist is not to fix or to change anyone—it is to help and support you in connecting with your own knowing, power, and ability to grow and meet your goals. I work with adults and older teens seeking assistance with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, and identity development and change.

I primarily utilize Family Systems , Narrative, Feminist, DBT/CBT and Existential therapies to address concerns and create a balance of acceptance and change.
Grief, trauma and systemic oppression have increasingly become visible and universal experiences affecting individuals, couples, families and communities. I began my career working with the survivors of intimate partner violence and individuals/families grappling with cancer and death. These experiences have informed my practice working with individuals, couples and families dealing with loss, grief, trauma, anxiety/depression, major life changes, chronic illness, abuse and relational distress.

My clinical frameworks: Somatic therapy, Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems , Attachment-Theory, Spirituality, CBT, Expressive Arts, and Earth-centered Healing.
You deserve to live an authentic life. Because you are here exploring therapy, you are being called to take the courageous journey within your inner realms to transform the trauma & pain that holds you back from living a more fulfilling and heart-centered life. Therapy can support you in creating a life that truly embodies the words of Maya Angelou because you deserve “..not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” Intentions set in therapy often focus on improving self-regulation, strengthening one’s sense of self, & enhancing one’s overall state of well-being.

I do this through person-centered internal family systems , acceptance and commitment therapy, somatic and attachment-focused EMDR, and the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music.
To be human is to experience great joy and great pain; sensitive people feel that pain on a deep level that can be overwhelming. Whether your pain stems from traumatic experiences, attachment wounds, or emotional needs that aren’t being met, therapy can help you sit with the pain while still building a meaningful and rich life. Therapy can help you claim your sensitivity for what it is--an exquisite gift to be honored instead of an overwhelming enemy.

One Christmas season it had rained a lot. I attempted to circle my yard with my car to slide out of my drive way, and I got stuck. The more I tried to get out the more stuck I became. Finally, I had to do what I was dreading and call a tow truck to get me out of my own yard! Well, sometimes in life, we get stuck in our own mud, and we have to call help to get us out. Wherever you are stuck today, I am here to help you move forward.

I also have training in EMDR to address trauma and IFS to navigate our different "parts" that show up during sessions.
YOU are doing it! Congratulations! Finding a therapist is not easy. Let's face it, we (therapists) can all look the same in the search. This process is similar to finding your favorite pair of shoes. Think of your favorite pair of shoes. When you tried on your shoes, how did they fit? Snug? Loose? Did you walk around the store to try them out? When finding a therapist, the same traits apply. Some may prefer snug; others loose. Only you can know which therapy style works for you. Now your opportunity is here. Give yourself a hug! Again, Congratulations!

I have training in IFS , NARM, & somatic interventions and have experience working with CPTSD, self-esteem issues, shame, anxiety, depression, and disordered eating.
Do you lack confidence in who you are and what you have to offer? Maybe you find it hard to ask for what you want and be assertive. You might carry feelings of guilt, shame, powerlessness, disconnection to self and others. I get it. I know the feeling. And I'm inspired by you being here. How beautiful is it that no matter the pain we've trudged through to get here, there's still a part of us whispering: I matter. I deserve love & peace & healing. I am more than the story I've been told. It might be hard to believe that part of you, if you grew up in a home or endured an experience that told you otherwise.
