I work primarily with women on low self-esteem, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
If you are like many of us, you may not feel sure of who you are or what you want in life. You may be in an unhealthy relationship, struggling with parenting, weathering the stress of college, or feeling hopeless in depression or addiction. As women, and even more so as mothers, it can feel impossible to measure up. Together, we’ll uncover who you truly are under social and familial expectations, heal past wounds, and create a lifestyle that keeps you squarely in your worth.

I have experience working with complex trauma, shame, depression, suicidality, self-harm, anxiety, and grief.
I am flexible to accommodate most schedules. I believe everyone can benefit from therapy; at its core, therapy is about building a relationship in which we feel safe to embrace and become our authentic selves. I enjoy working with people to explore life experiences and identify past trauma that may be preventing them from living their best life. I am passionate about issues surrounding individual freedoms, specifically relating to gender/sexuality. As a queer professional, I enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBTQIA+ and/or who practice nontraditional relationships, including polyamory and kink.

I have experience working addiction, trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, family challenges, boundary setting, burnout, career counseling, suicide, life change, self-care, spiritual fatigue, and connecting individuals to resources within the community.
We all bear marks and scars from life’s hardships and trials. Comparison of pain can frequently keep us from reaching out for help because “someone has it worse.” I am here to help you walk through whatever pain has brought you to where you currently are, grief, anxiety, depression, or transitions in life. Taking the step to seek counseling is incredibly brave; it is stepping out and saying you are more than what may seem insurmountable right now.

Anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship and addiction are the areas in which I have special interest, professional and personal experience.
I work best with adolescent and adult clients who appreciate a direct, to-the-point approach. I give lots of feedback and make my thoughts known. This approach tends to open up awarenesses that may have been unknown for a very long time. It is exciting to see this process unfold in individual psychotherapy.
