We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

I am currently not accepting new clients! Please check out my colleagues on our website! I believe that counseling is a journey to self-discovery that you are choosing to stop taking alone. Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it just takes a little guidance to really make the changes you want to make in your life. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, non-monogamous and kinky adults, sex workers, and those with alternative spiritualities. I am sex-positive and body-positive. I also work with people who have acute diagnoses, and I have experience working with folks who have been involuntarily hospitalized.

"One of the things that baffles me...is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness..."- Carrie Fisher. I find beauty and strength in these matter-of-fact words. I wholeheartedly agree that mental health conditions that cause distress should be destigmatized. I view people as inherently strong, ultimately resilient and inherently having great value, even when individuals suffer from mental health strains and conditions. A strength-centered approach informs both how I work with clients, and my outlook on life. My quest is to help you also find, or remember, the worth, value & resilience inherent in you.

Being seen, heard, and accepted is what we all long for. This is especially important when we reach out for help - we want to believe that if we expend the strength, energy, and courage to reach out, that there will be someone waiting to help us. To hear us. To see us. That'd be me. I'm passionate about helping people change their lives for the better. Do you want more happiness or calm? Better relationships? Parenting support (or support in dealing with parents)? Navigating your workplace dynamics? Whatever you're searching for, I am happy to help. PLEASE NOTE: TELEHEALTH ONLY as of 5/1/2020.

I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough.

I work with kids and families on issues of attachment after adoption, behavioral problems, emotional regulation, social skills, identity and separation. With kids I make use of a variety of play and art therapy techniques. Infants and very young children are seen in conjunction with their caregivers, in dyadic formation. With adults we work to recognize old patterns, gain awareness about internal conflicts, tolerate and overcome the threat of change, and awaken to new and more satisfying possibilities for thinking, relating and living. EMDR may used to process trauma. Somatic techniques may be used as well.

Emotions can seem like they are more trouble than they're worth. Not knowing how to effectively manage emotions can leave you feeling unhappy, stuck or even hopeless. Life can be hard but it doesn't have to be this difficult. There is hope for a better life. I know it is possible to learn how to transform burdensome emotions into sources of wisdom.

In respecting what is already working, we will focus both on what is going well in your life and where to catalyze your efforts for desired change. The goals may vary; but sharpening perception, connecting more deeply with self and revisiting old messages that interrupt optimal functioning are some common goals.

Whether you’re processing major life events or looking for help coping with day-to-day issues, I’d be honored to join you on your journey. As a trauma survivor myself, I know first-hand the importance of having compassionate, attuned support for engaging in deep work. I offer a relational approach to therapy, drawing from my training in trauma, safety, attachment, and emotional regulation. The current research shows that we can’t “talk our way out” trauma, pain, or discomfort. So the therapy I offer is experiential and relational, using the body and nervous system as resources for building resiliency and feeling more at ease.

Saint Irenaeus As a clinician I work with individuals and couples struggling with a variety of issues including relationships, anxiety, depression, addiction, food/body/movement issues, anger, and grief. More often than not, all of these mental health struggles are rooted in some form of deeper wound (trauma) that must be listened to and addressed before the resulting symptoms will begin to change. By treating the "roots" of the problem you are facing we will see the symptoms begin to change naturally. The goal of therapy is ultimately to become more alive and free!

Seeking therapy is a sign of personal strength, not of weakness. Therapy is one method to explore how your thoughts, feelings and behaviors influence your daily choices and relationships. Working with a licensed therapist can provide the objective and knowledgeable feedback needed to identify specific barriers, define and develop goals and gain the valuable skills and confidence to make that change.
