From personal and professional experience I know how hard it can be to navigate difficult circumstances without support- and I’m so glad you’re here. I enjoy working with a range of clients and specialize in assisting individuals and couples who are neurodivergent, LGBTQ+, and/or adult survivors of complex trauma and their partners navigate anxiety, depression, communication issues, and cultivate healthy sexuality. I am also kink/BDSM affirming and poly/ethical non-monogamy affirming.

I want to create a judgment-free space where your unique story is cherished, perfections are embraced, and your journey is the center of our work. My commitment is to use warmth, compassion, and understanding to help unravel the narratives we all weave about how we "should" navigate life. It's about your authenticity, vulnerability, and rawness. In the therapeutic space, perfection is neither expected nor sought. It's a comforting space for the beautiful messiness of your experiences, where words don't need to be flawless, imperfections are treated as unique threads in your story, and self-discovery unfolds at your pace.

My clients are people who want more enjoyment and intimate connection in their lives. Many of my clients struggle to maintain relationships, or in feeling close to those they love. They may have a history of abuse or neglect (emotional, physical, sexual, or spiritual), or were raised in homes where boundaries, roles, and expectations were confusing or even frightening. As a result they find themselves "on the outside," feeling unseen, anxious, resentful, and isolated, even with people they love. Experiencing the safety of being deeply known and deeply loved is their greatest longing, and my greatest joy to help them attain.

Are you frequently bothered by memories that just won't go away? When you face something new in life, are you afraid you can't handle it? Do you beat yourself up over mistakes that you have made? Do you find it difficult to say No to a request, or to ask for help from others? Do you feel burned out and frustrated with family or work relationships? Many of us have gone the route of self-help books, but these have limited value since they aren't tailored to our individual lives. My work with you is.

You're looking to be understood in your experience. You struggle with questioning if you are the issue or if it's the world around you. You live and work in high-stress and demanding environments where you're underrepresented. You've begun to realize your old ways of coping aren't working the same anymore. You may have even tried standard talk therapy in the past - and while helpful - you still find yourself troubled by disturbing experiences or memories.

Hi and welcome! I’m glad you stopped by to learn a little bit more about my practice. The majority of client’s I work with are individuals who struggle with high levels of anxiety perfectionism and relationship challenges. I commonly hear things like I can’t stop thinking about this thing(s) it distracts me at work and keeps me up at night. Some experience a lot of fear and worry around socializing being in public and other things that cause high distress. Many describe coming to a place where anxiety controlled how they showed up in life including their relationship with themselves and others. Anxiety is common so you're not alone!

We are all born with the innate capacity to be connected to our feelings and needs, without judgement or shame. Experiences in life, and sociocultural messages, all inform and influence our understanding of ourselves, our feelings of worthiness, and our connection with these deeper parts of ourselves. Sometimes, in experiences of trauma or prolonged stress, we develop ways of existing and coping that are necessary for our survival, but over time may no longer be needed, and can decrease feelings of connection, with self & others.

Accepting new clients starting in 01/2024. My approach is based on the belief that we all have the power to heal and find meaning, yet sometimes we need help doing it. I welcome clients who are struggling with anxiety, stress, or daily challenges and specialize in grief, end-of-life anxiety, and psychedelic integration. Together we will create a supportive, non-judgmental, and collaborative space for this work, emphasizing transparency and trust. I agree with Alan Watts: “When you’re freed from being out to improve yourself, your own nature will begin to take over.” We’re all doing the best we can with what we’ve been given.

Clients typically reach out to me when some area of their life is not working well. This could be a new instance of something not working well, or it’s possible that something hasn’t been working well for a very long time. It could be a behavior, a relationship, a job, an attitude, a way of thinking or feeling, or it could be that the ways you used to cope are no longer working or serving you anymore. It’s a painful place to be when the old way doesn’t work anymore but you don’t yet know a new way. Therapy can be a powerful place to learn new tools for engaging in life and relationships that serve you and those around you better.

My goal as a therapist and Clinical Supervisor is to increase your zest and vitality for life, to foster your ability to take action (empowerment), as well as to support you in having clarity (a clearer picture of yourself and others). Each of these goals, I believe, lead to an increased sense of self worth. In my time as a therapist, I have found that growth occurs both individually as well as in connection with others and that growth fostering relationships (of all kinds) that are created through mutual empathy and mutual empowerment are a key aspect of all of our lives.
