If you’re here perusing these therapist profiles, it’s probably because something’s not quite right. Maybe you hate your job, feel stuck in it, or have trouble finding one that feels congruent for you. Maybe it’s some turbulence occurring in your relationship– or the absence of a relationship when you long for one. Or perhaps something awful happened and you just can’t get it out of your head.

Suffering presents itself in a number of ways- behaviors and relationships we desire to change, uncomfortable emotions, chronic health problems, and feeling out of touch with meaning in our lives. I aim to help clients not only feel better, but live a life according to their values. I work with adults across the lifespan, and address a range of concerns from adjustment to life changes, stress and health management, relationship concerns, and significant mental health conditions. I particularly enjoy helping others overcome trauma, phobias, panic disorder, and depression. I support diversity- all are welcome, including non traditional relationships; sex positive.

It can be both rewarding and vulnerable to begin or continue therapy: I create a warm, non-judgmental space for reworking old patterns that may not serve you anymore. Life experiences, environment, circumstances, and cultural systems of power all shape our understanding of ourselves, of others, and of the world around us. Together we can explore what matters to you most, where you may feel stuck and how you can find more ease. To inform our work, I primarily draw on your history and relational experiences, your own body’s feedback, information from contemporary neuroscience, and our in-session interactions.

Struggling with depression or anxiety? Breaking patterns is hard, but you know you want change and meaningful redirection. Painful memories and recurrent conflict can strain relationships. Work stress gets in the way of being present and feeling fulfilled. People often work with me to get things moving when they feel blocked or stuck, to develop calm where uncertainty has them off balance. Our work will reveal insight to restore stability, address trauma, and change outlook towards realizing an improved sense of self.

The challenges and complexities of your day-to-day life may have lead you here. The traumas, losses, and heartaches of the past have, too.
