I view therapy as an opportunity to build a meaningful life. This can be through either discovering new meaning or recognizing meaning that's been there all along. In building therapeutic relationships, I aspire to form genuine, authentic connections with patients. My specialities include working with those experiencing existential anxiety or dread, those with complicated grief, trauma survivors, those with persistent suicidal ideation , persons living with psychosis, and those who use drugs and aren't interested in abstinence.

My ten years of experience working with LGBTQ people and clients of various backgrounds in mental health settings has shown me that personal change occurs best through relationships based on trust, and a common purpose. Relationships where you are encouraged to say what’s on your mind, be challenged, take risks, and gain new insights. In our sessions, I will focus on honoring your autonomy as we work towards your goals for therapy. My intention is not to teach you a “correct way to live" but instead to learn what already works for you and help create a space to explore yourself further leading to new possibilities for your life.

We move through institutions of power our entire lives. First, family, then we form friends at school, fall in love in college, maybe grow close to others in religious communities. Along the way, we encounter experiences that enable us to become more of our authentic selves. Sometimes, these experiences are less than ideal, other times, these experiences are more traumatizing than we originally thought. Depression, anxiety, insomnia, are a few things that manifest and these are the PTSD-related symptoms that I specialize in.

I work with clients to help them better manage stress; manage depression symptoms; manage anxiety; process life transitions; and process existential questions. In addition, I support clients grieving from from the loss of a loved one, the loss of a role or the loss of status.

Throughout the course of our lives, all of us experience challenging relationship dynamics, family expectations, losses, traumas, societal pressures, oppressive structures, and/or shifts in our identity. Due to these, over time we may find ourselves disconnected from our sense of self and no longer clear on what we need, want, or feel. We may struggle to be present or to be in tune with our bodies. We may feel like we're living for others, rather than for ourselves. Therapy is one way that we can process, heal, and understand these experiences in order to re-embody who we are and who we want to be.

As a therapist, I start from a space of curiosity for exploration and affirmation without judgement. I view therapy as a tool to support your growth, healing and self-awareness, founded on a unique relationship with each person I see in therapy. Many people I work with have experienced traumatic events and oppression from systems that target certain people for exclusion and violence. Despite the obstacles that can prevent us from experiencing connection, I believe that every person is worthy of love and community.

Therapy works when you feel genuinely seen and heard, and when we can build the trust to clearly imagine and move towards the ways you want yourself and your life to change. My approach to this work is warm, caring, and candid—and, above all, responsive to what you need. We might also laugh sometimes.

We've all found ways of surviving in a chaotic and overwhelming world, but many of those survival strategies can make us feel out of control, disconnected or helpless. Developing a deeper understanding and appreciation for the ways your brain and body have learned to adapt can illuminate new paths toward connection, self worth, agency, and meaning. I view distress and suffering as a product of systems of oppression rather than personal failures, and hope to help you identify areas in your life where you have power and choice. I see community as a source of safety, healing and strength, and therefore as central to therapeutic work.

Therapy is a powerful tool of discovery that helps you see yourself, your relationships, and the world through new eyes. It is exercise for the mind that helps us become emotionally flexible and prepared to weather the storms that life inevitably brings. Usually things work, until they don’t. And people come to therapy when things have stopped working. Through careful and gentle inquiry, we can usually unravel what isn’t working, and help build a new way forward. Often the fit between therapist and patient is the big factor in therapy effectiveness. So, how you feel when you talk to the prospective therapist is an important guide.
