I practice from a strength-based, insight-oriented, and collaborative approach individualized to meet the unique needs of each client. I offer an empathetic, supportive, and accepting environment for my clients to feel heard and understood while also challenged and inspired to take on new perspectives, ways of thinking, and daily practices. Therapy is a process that can provide tools to relieve immediate stress, but also an opportunity to explore the underlying meanings, behavioral patterns, and relationship dynamics in order to lead a life of authenticity and genuine fulfillment. My clients also strive to positively impact society.

Teletherapy Offered...People are not their diagnoses even though these labels can sometimes be informative. I prefer to get to know you. Specifically, what do you want out of therapy? What is currently working for you, not working? What brings you in to see me in this moment? I believe that therapy is not only about reducing our suffering, but also finding meaning and fulfillment in our lives. It is about getting to know ourselves, parts that we love, parts that we are afraid of, parts that we don't yet understand. People are also not things that need to be "fixed", instead, this is a place for healing, self-compassion, and growth.

There is no greater time to work to be more intentional in our understanding of and dismantling of oppressive systems.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!!! “There’s nothing to fear but fear itself”I believe therapy is a tool used to promote healing and self-awareness. Successful change starts with the will and motivation as an individual to gain insight as a person and focus on changes that promote a healthy and happier life. My approach as a therapist is to provide a supportive and safe environment while utilizing cognitive behavioral techniques. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a goal-oriented treatment that encourages one to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and help change the way we feel.

My ideal client is any person who is willing to show up and share their struggles. Recognizing the need for support and actually asking for it are huge accomplishments. I enjoy working with folx who want to explore themselves, are open to the therapeutic process and want to work with someone who is not as stoic as therapists are portrayed in the media. If you enjoy honest communication, gentle feedback and have a desire to care for yourself, we would be a good match.

Often, therapy can be the process of landing at a better understanding of yourself to discover what helps you heal. Though the first step of reaching out for help can be intimidating, it alone is an act of courage. At times, therapy may include the discussion of oppression and liberation, injustice and inequality, and the systemic impacts which folks may need healing from. I recognize the LGBTQIA and BIPOC communities are facing distinct and unique issues when navigating today’s society in a fight for full and unwavering liberation. I hold spaces with my clients where multiple truths and multiple lived experiences are welcome.

I am extremely passionate about my work and am curious about the people I works with. I strive to understand people within the larger context of their lives instead of seeing them simply as a diagnosis or label. This stance allows me to practice psychotherapy in a genuine, relational, and compassionate way while remaining firmly rooted in theory and providing treatments that have been shown to work. In the therapy room I strive to to accept clients for who they are. In doing so, I make space for understanding how the things we do in our lives may be functional in the short-term but can cause suffering in the long-term.

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to connect with you. The therapeutic process is a sacred journey. Here we can share in a safe, non-judgmental place. If we have suffered addiction, anxiety, depression or trauma we can uncover the aspects of ourselves that need healing. The quality of our lives is directly connected to the quality of our relationships - with ourselves and with others. When our relationships are suffering, everything is impacted. For that reason, in our therapy sessions we explore whatever is unfolding in your relationships and we discover how to bring awareness and skill to these crucial connections.

Disorders such as depression and anxiety are often complicated by substance abuse, and vice versa. I'm experienced in treating such co-occurring disorders and other issues in a supportive, open and effective way that respects clients' autonomy and values. What this means in practice is a customized approach to each individual, based on their specific needs, that draws on different therapeutic traditions and techniques. These may include psychodynamic, looking at close early relationships and issues; cognitive-behavioral therapy, untangling connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviors; mindfulness, drawing on ancient mind-body practices such as meditation that neuroscience has increasingly validated; as well as others.
