I am confident that my clients can discover their own solutions to the conflicts and anxieties that bring them to therapy. I believe that people want to be heard by a professional who will help them develop new perspectives on themselves and their relationships, and who will assist them in finding creative ways to handle the anguish that daily living involves. I am exploratory and active and make interventions within the context of each person's historical narrative. I provide interventions and referrals when necessary.

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.

Life as a neurodivergent and/or disabled person can be beautiful, wonderful, and filled with so much joy! It can also be exhausting, challenging, and involve a lot of misunderstanding from those around you.

Who you are is not up for debate. I place the intersections of identity at the forefront of my practice because identity frames who we are and how we experience the world. Those who experienced Childhood Sexual Abuse know it can negatively impact every area of your life. This type of trauma can lead to isolation, guilt, shame, sexual problems, depression, anxiety, relationship troubles and so much more. It is time to take back your life. I can help you break free from the hold your past abuse still has on you today. Together we can explore new interventions and tools, develop new skills and rewrite your narrative. You deserve this!

I am trained in using CBT, EMDR, and other evidence-based approaches to help people make lasting changes to their self-image that lead to real changes in their lives. My approach is hands on, goal-oriented, strengths based, and gender/identity affirming. I help clients challenge unrealistic patterns of thinking, deconstruct who they are from who they have learned to be, learn how to feel safe and regulated in their body, identify options for difficult life situations that align with their values, and learn the skills to meet their needs e.g. assertiveness, boundary setting, communication, mindfulness, relaxation and grounding.
