I have experience working with depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, parenting struggles, substance use disorders, self-harm, life transitions, ADHD and ODD, and self-esteem-related issues.
I enjoy working with clients who are transitioning to the next stage of their lives or want to set new life/career goals. The next step could be transitioning from high school to college, beginning a new relationship, or a new career/job. I like to support the client with exploring these new goals, help build confidence/self-esteem to take those first steps towards them, and re-evaluate goals if necessary. I find that these transitions come with a lot of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can hold clients back, which I like to explore, build solutions, and help them realize that goals are achievable.

I’ve helped clients across the lifespan with issues like anxiety, depression, substance use , trauma, grief + loss, life transitions, identity development, and sociopolitical stress + climate anxiety.
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.

My clients present a spectrum of needs including navigating substance use , relational distress, chronic health issues, and productivity burnout. Often I assist clients interested in exploring impacts of capitalism, social disenfranchisement, and unhelpful narratives that can create negative self-talk, feelings of hopelessness, and existential anxiety. I identify as part of the queer community and work to support LGBTQIA clients in connecting to community, establishing boundaries, and exploring internalized messages that can impact self-esteem, communication skills, and destructive patterns.

I utilize a combination of CBT, Mindfulness Meditation, Sandtray/Play Therapy, and Creative Art Interventions to support clients experiencing mental health issues including, but not limited to, attachment and adjustment issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and substance use disorders.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach is genuine and sincere. My focus is to help clients recognize and manage emotions, encourage ways to effectively express what they are feeling and introduce fun and effective coping strategies. Throughout my work with adults, teens, and children, it has been essential to communicate empathy as I build trust and teach the cognitive and relaxation skills necessary to help manage depression, grief, episodes of abuse, adjustment, and anger issues. To support the whole family, I attend to parents through couples counseling, and parenting skills to enhance/improve communication.

I specialize in working with clients who struggle with co-occurring disorders- people who struggle with Bipolar Disorders as well as co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
I work alongside my clients to help them move forward and achieve the goals that they have for themselves and to help them live their best possible lives. It is very important to me that I provide a place that feels safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive, which is what helps me work with my clients in this way. The goals that people work on in therapy can involve anything- learning healthier ways to express anger, finding new ways to cope with the effects of past traumas, stabilizing mood episodes (e.g., mania, severe depression), maintaining and establishing sobriery, and more.

Therapy can generate greater meaning in your life, nourish a sense of connection, and help transform unhealthy patterns. Whether you seek help with specific concerns or you simply want to better understand yourself, I create a supportive space in which we can think together about your relationships and experiences. My style as a therapist tends to be warm, engaged, and curious. I encourage a focus both on a deeper exploration of the roots of your distress and on what can be changed in the present to help you feel better.

I have an extensive history of work with persons who identify as queer/trans/GNC, survivors of complex trauma, childhood abuse/neglect, survivors of cults/high demand groups, substance use , dissociative disorders, attachment, IPV, and grief/loss.
People often seek therapy to resolve past experiences and life complexities and the decision to enter therapy may carry feelings of ambivalence and uncertainty. I believe that therapy is most effective when persons are offered an environment that is inviting, attentive, collaborative, affirming, and safe. Subsequently, my goal is to provide a challenging, but non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere for persons to explore concerns and difficulties as a means of achieving desired change.

Although I am an experienced general practitioner and treat a variety of problems, I have unique experience in working with a) individuals with substance use /abuse related problems and b) law students, early career associates and attorneys trying to meet both professional demands and personal/family needs.
Whether you need a bit of extra support or a different perspective, or you are ready to dive in and work on deeper or more chronic issues, we can collaborate in helping you move forward. Together we can begin managing your distress/symptoms in the short-term so that more enduring solutions and changes can occur over time. Our work can help you to understand the sources of your distress in ways that will allow you to think more clearly, feel more deeply, and manage your life more effectively.

You may have depended on emotional numbing, substance use , or other unhealthy coping to manage what otherwise might have been unbearable.
The experience of trauma and loss changes your entire world view. Tomorrow no longer seems promised or predictable. The past is no longer just the past; at times, the past feels like the present. The fragility of life and closeness of death is now undeniable. What seemed important to you has changed entirely. Meanwhile, others around you are focused on things that seem petty and material, as they plan for a future they assume is certain. As a result, connecting with others becomes difficult and you can find yourself alone. You can feel like you are an alien on the planet you used to call home.
