With 25 years of experience, I utilize talk and art therapy to help you find your voice whether it be about a current situation that is causing you distress or something from your past or future. We hold on to thoughts, behaviors and feelings that seem too overwhelming to share with others. We fear vulnerability. We run from difficult feelings/thoughts and feel ashamed of our emotional "baggage". Then, we try to hide under a mask because of shame, fear, and anxiety. Hiding in shame only makes us feel isolated, empty and experience self hatred. We become disconnected from ourselves, others and feel painfully lonely.

Grief is the price we pay for loving deeply and having to let go. It can result from the death of a loved one, end of a relationship, or the loss of a job, home or former identity. Grief can feel simultaneously empty, yet heavy. It can cause confusion of how to go on living a "normal" life. It can also feel like no one else could possibly understand. After a decade of working alongside individuals who were dying, providing counseling to care givers and loved ones, I understand the significant pain and trauma of grieving. I also know how to help in healing and restoring hope.

My guiding principle as a therapist is deep listening without judgment (acknowledgement plus acceptance) so that people can feel the freedom to express themselves, explore their experiences and create authentic connection. I believe that listening is an essential tool in healing and feeling valued. My approach is trauma-informed and client-centered, with an anti-oppression lens. I am committed to the lifelong unlearning of colonial structures that are deeply rooted in mental health, and to holding space for others to unpack how societal and institutional structures have impacted their mental health and wellness.

You are more than this moment, this feeling, this setback, and these thoughts that you just can't get out of your head. Depression and anxiety and oppression and trauma are all real and are all powerful forces that can do so much harm and make you doubt the value you add to the world and the love and respect you deserve. Those voices are not your voice, and I want to help you defeat them.
