Perhaps you feel like you don't fit in or are struggling to figure out who you are or what is important to you. Or something, either concrete or intangible, isn't working in your life or just feels "off." Perhaps you are sad, anxious, struggling with a loss, infertility, chronic illness, or having difficulty with a family situation or relationship. I provide a compassionate and safe space to explore these challenges, allowing you to focus on what gives your life purpose and meaning. We will work on two levels- gaining insight, while also learning tools and strategies to reduce your pain.

Therapy gives us the opportunity to express ourselves to the fullest extent without fear of judgment or retaliation. My background in left social movements grounds my practice in abolitionist and anti-oppressive frameworks. I particularly love working with adults and adolescents navigating trauma, peer conflict, OCD, AuDHD, TBI, and queerness. I am also passionate about supporting folks dealing with political and activist stress, chronic illness and ableism. I am emotions-focused, relational, and direct, and use a mix of talk therapy, IFS, somatic work, and am certified in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy.

The diverse nature of the human experience often leads to feelings of confusion, loneliness, anxiety, depression, and disenfranchised grief. Yet, by acknowledging these experiences, we gift ourselves with possibilities and opportunities for change. I work with teens and young adults, with a focus on the emotional components of living with chronic illness, grief, loss, and life transitions. I mainly provide psychodynamic and trauma-informed care, with specialized training in EMDR, DBT, and somatic interventions.

I work with adult individuals and couples, and specialize in issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship distress, and chronic illness including Type 1 Diabetes.
My role as a therapist is to help you navigate life's challenges. Therapy is an opportunity to explore parts of yourself that might be causing distress. It allows you the ability to process and release emotions that have previously caused you to feel stuck, to recognize patterns in behavior and relationships over time, and to assert your needs in order to feel safe. My approach is relational and psychodynamic and I work from the understanding that our earliest attachments inform the way we engage in our present day relationships.
