I would love to partner with community kids and families to help support their family from a holistic lens. I care about children's overall development as well as the entire family's quality of life. Parents are often stretched out thin and deserve a community to help support their unique family needs. Research shows that caregivers of children with special needs experience greater stress levels than caregivers of typically developing children. Caregivers deserve community support from an experienced therapist. We can set goals together to promote the goals that are important to your family.

Telehealth only. I am a holistic trauma therapist. I utilize Ego State work, Internal Family Systems, Compassionate Inquiry, and other approaches, with EMDR to address traumas big and small. I help people understand how their health and mental health are connected from a holistic and naturopathic lens. I myself have healed from several chronic and autoimmune conditions that came with mental health symptoms. This journey shaped my perspective as a therapist.

I believe that you are capable, resilient, and worthy. This means that I operate from a strengths-based and solution-focused perspective. While it is helpful to determine the true challenge, we often tend to fixate on problems that we lose sight of the strengths and possible solutions that can help us navigate trials life brings. This also means that I desire to understand and connect with you in a way that helps you see yourself as capable and worthy.

Does it feel like you can’t do it all anymore? That you’ve tried really hard, but are burnt out. Or maybe you’ve reached your max in your ability to make things better, keep it all together, or to make things feel less chaotic. Going through the motions of our daily life can feel overwhelming, even without the impacts of grief, loss or trauma. And if this is your first time reaching out to a counselor it can feel scary, uncomfortable, exciting or maybe all of the above. So it's so important to me that you feel welcomed when you reach out for the first time. My initial goal is to get to know you and create a welcoming space for you.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
