“Attachment is another word for disappointment and pain.” Are your relationships a source of elation and devastation but rarely anything in between? Perhaps ‘chaos’ and ‘emotional roller coaster’ define your family, friendships, or marriage? Trusting others is difficult. You feel manipulated or foolish, and your coping mechanisms aren’t working. You tolerate unhealthy behaviors because it hurts less than being abandoned. There is another way. I promise.

Are you struggling with adjusting to change? Are past traumas keeping you stuck? There are so many changes universally right now and they can be overwhelming. Even adapting back to what we are referring to as "normalcy" is different and new. Or, do you have some issues with feeling confident in one or more areas of your life? I get it. Sometimes clients come to me for support and guidance with their relationships, yet their work situation is mostly satisfying. And still others would like to feel more comfortable in their family role, professional role, or even in their roles in general. They would like to be able to move forward.

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to enhance learning about behavior, emotions, relationships, and oneself. My goal is to work through the difficulties you are experiencing now while we also build your resiliency to prevent or minimize future difficulties. I ask clients to devote time in between sessions to our work: to increase how accurately we understand your concerns and to take the therapeutic work into your everyday life. Treatment effectiveness relies heavily on the match between therapist and client. If it is not a positive match with me, I assist clients in finding your best match.

Wondering what is next? How you got where you are? Who you are? Afraid you've missed opportunities or what you hoped for is passing by? I work with people looking for authenticity and fulfillment, offering a chance to question openly and explore who you are and what you really love. Understanding the inevitability of change and how to navigate through sometimes unthinkable circumstances can feel overwhelming. I love working together with clients to help them understand and manage these deep emotions--and to realize that they do have the courage to face what is ahead and the ability to manage their own lives.

My work is devoted to helping college students and adults achieve the fulfilling lives they aspire to. My clients struggle with different issues, including: -worries and anxiety; -being overwhelmed by stress and not knowing how to find peace; -depression and low self-esteem; -work problems; -grief; -problems with relationships and intimacy; -seeking meaning in their lives; and -a desire for spirituality and creativity. Since it's usually so hard to change our habitual ways of doing things and it takes courage, my work encourages humor and teaches self-compassion. What I offer to others is the opportunity to learn to love themselves.

Many individuals seeking therapy have had experiences feeling misunderstood, isolated, ignored, or even confused. Navigating mental health is not always easy or comfortable. Regardless of one's presenting issues, my goal as a counselor is to help clients gain a better understanding of their experiences, identity, and conflicts. I have extensive experience working with clients facing racial identity issues, anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, perinatal or new parenting issues, and issues related to athletics. Even if you don't fall within these categories, I'd be happy to get to know you and help you through your journey!

Something crazy or intense happened. Maybe you know what it was or maybe you don't. Maybe it's still happening. Or maybe something has always felt a bit off or harder than seems necessary. Or maybe you just feel stuck. I would be happy to walk the path with you of finding ways to resolve, rebuild, and renegotiate how you respond to situations, people, and yourself. I am trained in many body- and nervous system-based modalities, such as Somatic Experiencing, NARM, BASE, co-regulating touch, Brainspotting, NLP, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), & EMDR. I also work with couples learning how to communicate better.

My practice is currently full. Welcome! I offer an open-hearted, compassionate approach, rooted in relational, mindfulness, and spiritual techniques. You have an innate strength, capable of leading you to peace and clarity, and I am here to partner with you and guide you to that inner wisdom. I take a non-pathological approach and view "symptoms" and "diagnoses" as protective coping mechanisms with positive intent, despite their negative impact. When we get curious about these protective parts, we can form a relationship with them and discover the underlying vulnerability needing attention and healing.

Are you living a purpose filled life? A life that you enjoy waking up to and beginning your day with a strategic plan to live on purpose. At one point you felt optimistic about life then out of nowhere you were triggered by a memory from the past which led to your downward spiral of emotions. Now you are questioning your life's purpose and reason for existence. Or perhaps confused as to why you have experienced certain encounters leading you to feelings of stress, distant behavior, agitation, or perhaps hopeless.

January 2024: I have limited openings for new patients. You are welcome to contact me and I will respond about scheduling a consultation as I am able and will discuss your care needs and therapy goals. I have dedicated my 20 year long career to the premise that we must know what is possible and have capacity to do it before we can be free to choose. During my academic studies in Psychology, Philosophy, Religion, and Social Work I was introduced to the intersections of Queer and Gender theories and became ignited with the framework of knowledge, power, control, and paths to liberation, all of which continue to inform my practice.
