I believe that you are the expert of your experience. In our first session you will share what brings you to therapy and what you hope to gain. What I contribute to our work together is my knowledge of psychological theories and my ability to translate that into effective treatment. I will offer my perspective and experience and always be open to your feedback, experience and preferences. Our work is less like going to the dentist (with an active doctor and passive patient) and more like painting a mural together (as if we are each holding a brush and making decisions about what to paint and where).

teens are the heart of my work at deep space. the teen experience can be overwhelming, confusing, and exciting all at the same time. both their internal and external climate is chock-full of newness, opportunities for growth, as well as potential pitfalls they can unintentionally fall into. they want guidance from a trusted adult outside of their circles who sees them accurately, speaks their language, and takes them on a journey of self-discovery to arm them for the real world. my rough-around-the-edges, direct approach seems to be well received by the teens i have/had the privilege of working with.

I am a licensed professional counselor with a background in community mental health. I bring to my practice years of work with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, PTSD, generational trauma, addiction issues, life transitions and grief and loss. I utilize brief therapy modalities in my practice along with longer-term models like Jungian and other depth psychologies. Within this framework I embrace an existential paradigm, focusing on the four ultimate concerns or conditions in living: death, freedom, isolation and meaninglessness. Spirituality and the deep feminine are core aspects of my practice.

Taking New Clients: Everyone has the essential ingredients for positive change. Individuals and couples who seek my support are in a difficult moment or intersection in life; seeking resolution between internal and external pressures; seeking satisfaction and harmony in relationships, identity, career, society, etc. I support clients who seek to deepen and broaden their perspective on who they are and who they want to become by examining self-limiting narratives, refining self-mastery, and cultivating self-compassion. BIPOC and multicultural clients often seek my support as well as those who want more from therapy than just insight.

The human condition is stressful for everyone right now. Healthcare providers, LGBTQ2SIA + and those with chronic pain/medical illness are feeling it more than ever. Depression, anxiety and trauma responses can be overlooked/minimized. What you are experiencing is real and you deserve the time, space and support to explore this. Are your thoughts, feelings and behaviors getting in the way of your relationships/work/goals/well-being? Are you taking better care of others than you are of yourself? Is it time to move beyond surviving and begin thriving? If so, perhaps it's time to reach out for a helping hand. All are welcome here.

Change is possible. A diagnosis of OCD or another anxiety disorder can be scary and confusing. It can feel like your life is defined by dread, worry, fear, and exhaustion. Much of your energy and time are likely spent trying to present to the outside world as “successful” and “having it all together”. Internally, you may feel disconnected from your core self, your innate purpose and potential, and the ability to enjoy simple moments in your life. Anxiety doesn’t have to define who you are as a human. Therapy is courageous work. I’m glad you’re here making this first step.

Trauma comes in many forms. It can be from childhood abuse, car accidents, toxic work environment, toxic relationship, racial injustice, war, rape, bullying, natural and manmade disasters like wildfires and earthquakes. You may have the symptoms of PTSD but not have explicit memories of the traumatizing experience. EMDR walks you through a series of steps to help decrease the symptoms of PTSD (nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, insomnia, avoidance and hopelessness about the future). It also helps to map out a plan to deal with future triggers and gives a renewed and positive belief system about the self. I offer a free consultation.
