Besides working as a therapist, I'm an activist who's work includes racial justice, transformative response to harm and pro-feminist men's group work. I have a 12 year foundation in mindfulness practice and Level 1 training in Internal Family Systems therapy. I came to work as a therapist through my own experiences in therapy and these experiences deeply inform how I show up for people and guide my work. While I work with folks of all ages, I specialize in working with youth and young adults.

Sometimes we get caught up in who we think we should be or how we think we should act. This makes it hard to tune in to which parts of ourselves we want to nourish. I invite clients both young and old to take an active role in learning ways to increase meaning and enjoyment in their lives. I work with adolescents, adults, and parents struggling with issues of depression and anxiety, sexuality, and gender identity. Through drawing, storytelling and play, I help kids put their feelings into words and learn effective ways to connect with others. I recognize and celebrate neurodiversity as well as expansive gender expression.

*My practice is full as of Nov 2020* As a psychologist, I help adults and college students explore their experiences, thoughts and emotions within in a supportive and optimally challenging environment. My clients generally want to improve quality of life, strengthen relationships, reduce struggles with food, and recover from traumatic experiences. I love to help people navigate identity changes such as new motherhood, and also cultural or sexual identity. Mostly though, I just enjoy working with anyone who is curious and reflective.

It is not uncommon to realize we are living lives we never planned on. We may be in an active crisis, or a life transition, or we may realize that we are stuck, or that things are just not working. Often, present-day challenges can be traced back to old patterns of relating, perceiving, understanding, and behaving. I help my clients identify and understand old patterns, and then develop greater flexibility in how they relate and respond. I work with them to adopt new practices which will allow them to move away from impasses and towards lives that are more fulfilling, productive and connected.

I am not your typical therapist, and strive to always create that emotional connection that allows us to work through any issue as a team. Most of my clients have already tried traditional therapy, and haven't been able to engage in one way or the other. Many of my clients haven't felt heard or understood, and it is a goal of mine to make therapy accessible for all. My belief as a therapist is that everyone can benefit- and should benefit from the relationship they have with their therapist. My clients believe in person centered care- and feedback goes both ways. I provide a trauma informed environment where the client gets to lead.

***CURRENTLY FULL*** My ideal client is looking for a safe space to just be. Therapy should be a reprieve from judgment and a haven for personal growth. I believe that everyone could benefit from therapy to recognize and strengthen their inner resilience against the ups and downs of our day to day experience. The therapeutic relationship is the most powerful tool in navigating those ups and downs. Trust is the center of that relationship, and I know it takes time to earn.
