I also have experience working with polyamory and other nontraditional relationship and family structures.
For many, these last few years have been exceptionally difficult, and in one way or another most of us are struggling right now. I (they/them) believe that developing a deeper understanding of what you’re going through and how you’re coping can help you get to a better mental place. I strive to be a careful listener who will treat you as the expert of your own experience and endeavor to help you understand and overcome the things that are hurting you or holding you back.

I have 15 years of experience working with clients with trauma and mood disorders. I also work with people struggling with eating disorders, grief/loss and life transitions. I speak Spanish and have a strong interest in working with Hispanic/Latinx communities. I am a strong advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. I find tremendous benefit in assisting people with identifying various forms of oppression (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.) and understanding how these impact their lives. In my practice, I focus on helping people to free themselves from the effects of difficult, early and ongoing life experiences.

As a therapist, I approach my work with a reverence for the uniqueness of each individual’s experience. It is my hope to create a therapeutic relationship based on compassion, trust, and respect while providing a warm, non-judgmental space for clients. My style is patient, grounding, and contemplative. I draw from various approaches to meet each client's needs. As a yoga teacher, I additionally enjoy integrating elements of mindfulness and somatic work into my practice. I am invested in helping clients live in a way that is aligned with their values and aspirations.

Many of my clients relate to the experience of feeling "othered", different or as existing outside of culturally-constructed margins. In our increasingly isolationist world, feeling different or other is becoming a common experience. While many things may remind us of our difference, or "non-normativity", in therapy I aim to collaboratively uncover and identify the worth and purpose that I believe exist in all humxn beings. I believe that all concerns, struggles, challenges, curiosities and explorations brought to therapy are related to relationships--the relationship we have with ourselves and other people. Often, clients express a need for deep connection and goals involve enhancing relationships, identifying emotions, coping more effectively with emotions, and nourishing self-worth and confidence. Research on therapeutic effectiveness has repeatedly demonstrated that therapeutic relationship is the principle determinant of positive therapeutic outcome. Thus, when I first meet clients, client-therapist relationship and chemistry is the primary emphasis and catalyst for change.

Sex and relationship counseling is an opportunity to create and commit to yourself, your partners, and your intimate relationships. So whether you're trying to get back out there after a significant break up, to connect with a partner's sexuality, or to establish your own boundaries in an intimate relationship, you deserve the time and space to figure it out. I am proud to work with individuals, couples, and partners to explore their values and show up as their most authentic selves in their most valuable relationships.

Most of us at one time or another find ourselves in places where we may experience heavy emotional pain. We all want to be seen and heard, but sometimes problematic patterns can develop as a result of trying to get our deepest needs met. I've been a therapist for over 15 years and offer a relational treatment approach informed by cognitive behavioral theory, mind/body awareness, and trauma informed care and compassion. I envision therapy as that quiet space where together we find healing and develop new perspectives that enable you to connect with your truest self and live the life you desire. Licensed in NC, NY, & OR.

The process of looking for a new therapist can feel intimidating for the most seasoned therapy-goer. It takes courage to even consider opening up about your personal challenges, hopes, and desires. Maybe you’re struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression that’s making it difficult for you to live (and fully enjoy!) your life as you wish. Maybe painful experiences you’ve had left you feeling “stuck” in the past and disconnected from your present and future. Or maybe you are feeling as though you’ve hit a wall or reached a plateau with yourself or others.

Sometimes life creates change when we aren't ready. You may find that life transitions have left you feeling differently than you expected, or you're discovering things about yourself that you aren't sure what to do with. Sometimes loved ones change in ways that challenge us, and sometimes we grow and hope our loved ones will grow with us. Sometimes LGBTQIA+ identities have specific needs, particularly for couples and families adjusting to newly expressed identities and searching for a healthy, supportive dynamic. Unfortunately, coping with these unexpected changes usually isn't a smooth, easy, or pretty process.

Everyone can benefit from therapy. How often in your day to day do you have an hour where you’re fully seen, heard, and encouraged? That’s what therapy should provide. Too often therapy is misrepresented and clients stigmatized as weak or ill when, in fact, the strongest thing you can do is seek help. Let me help you through your darkest of times or your day to day concerns. There is no issue too big or too small to conquer.

I believe we all have deep strengths and strong values that guide everything we do. Many times, life tries to get in the way, but we can choose to be mindful and present to the positives and negatives in life. How do we become more mindful? It's important to pause sometimes and decide what we care about, and if our actions take us closer to or further away from where we want to go. I'm here to help you discover what is meaningful for you, and how to move toward what you want in life.
