We are told a lot of things growing up about who we are. I like to explore authenticity by challenging these expectations for what fits for you, and what you have outgrown for the person you want to become. Often, we take for granted aspects about our experience, which can be resources of strength in overcoming stress. As a part of my practice, I work with clients to understand themselves and their awareness of their internal world, which can strengthen the relationship with others. I use an integrative approach that takes into account your values, cultural practices, and beliefs in how you view the world and sources of distresses.

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.

Our painful experiences and the conditions of our society often push us to disconnect from our authentic selves, relationships, communities, and the world around us. I view healing as a process of reconnection. In our work together, we will aim to make sense of your story, explore all the parts of you that make you who you are, and work through places where you feel stuck. Through this process, my hope is that you can live your life with more agency and authenticity, more skills and tools to manage the challenges, and more capacity to experience ease, connection, and the full range of human emotions.

I also have a master's degree in speech pathology and thus can work with adults and children in therapy who identify as having ADHD, autism, and learning disabilities.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed? Struggling with your relationships? We humans are wired for connection. When life's experiences damage those connections, we end up depressed, anxious, angry & unhappy, often turning to unhealthy lifestyles including alcohol, food, drugs & overspending. We suffer & our relationships suffer. Therapy allows time for exploring these disconnections & learning new skills for connecting to ourselves, others & the world, so we can live the life we want. I can help you clarify & work productively with these issues, develop your strengths, & experience a greater overall sense of well-being.

We all have our own unique stories. Within them lie challenges and obstacles to work with. I liken it to each of us being in the middle of a tornado; in the middle, we can't see clearly everything that's zipping chaotically around us; we just know we're in the thick of it. Therapy helps us be able to step back from the tornado, so that we can see what's actually going on around us. If you are here, then you desire some type of shift in the way life has been operating with you. You might have a clear understanding of the blockage, or you may not yet. Wherever you are in your journey, we will meet where you are and move forward.

Whether you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, numb, hopeless, or just curious - talking to someone can help. With the right therapist, you’ll learn to identify patterns in your thinking and behavior, improve moment-to-moment awareness and self-regulation, and deepen your understanding of the circumstances around your suffering - and eventually come to terms with them and/or change them altogether.
