Taking the time to learn more about yourself and care for yourself is a brave and rewarding journey.

The desire to be known, and to know oneself, is so very human. Working together, we can make sense of your internal experience as it relates to and interacts with the external world.

Feeling seen and understood creates a safe, reliable space to explore your deepest motivations in starting the work known as therapy. Humor, when appropriate, can assist in expanding our perspective.

The trickiest part of making changes is committing to taking on the task and you’ve made it here. Kudos. I believe that our experiences occur within the impact of systems.

I find the more we know about ourselves the better we can disrupt patterns and deepen groundedness and joy. I like to be straightforward and honest, while supporting you to come into your own understandings. I do this with compassion and curiosity.

Every story is unique. My job in session is to listen well and frame a space that invites you to speak freely. I work exclusively through telehealth, and my areas of expertise are in helping people who are grappling with overwhelming emotions, dissociative defenses, or the aftermath of painful experiences to get to a place that's more livable. Integrating the tools of old school psychotherapy with affective neurobiology, relational theories of change, and a horizontal treatment approach, I help you get to the root of the problem as we work in the moment towards equilibrium and a sense of connectedness to yourself and others.
