Therapy is an opportunity to explore the self and develop coping skills in the areas that YOU want to improve and NOT because you need fixing. Together, we’ll foster acceptance of the self, others and the world around us. My goal is to help you have meaningful relationships- with others and especially yourself. Whether it’s dealing with daily stressors or major life changes, therapy can provide essential insight and coping skills to help you get through this time. I am invested in helping you effectively deal with whatever comes your way and ultimately thrive.

I practice from a sex positive perspective and welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, intersex, and trans* individuals into my practice as well those involved in non-traditional models of relationships.
Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Do you feel burdened or confused by things that have happened to you in the past? Are you seeking peace in your relationship to yourself, to food, and to your body? You've been doing the very best that you can to manage on your own, and likely need a safe, structured space to take on the most important work of your life -- the work of self-care and your own healing.

I have specific expertise in working with stigmatized groups, like LGBTQ+, sex workers, poly, kink , and other people from diverse sexual and gender experiences; as well as refugees and immigrants; and complex trauma.
I usually work from a mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral perspective, in which we examine how your thinking affects your emotions and behaviors. By becoming aware of unhealthy thought patterns, we can learn to think differently; and similarly, change our relationship with the associated negative feelings. I usually work in a more direct manner, giving you concrete tools that you can use to help yourself. Of course, all of this will depend upon you! Each treatment will be a collaborative process, depending on what works best for you.
