"Are you looking to gain a better understanding and acceptance of yourself? Do you need support but worry about “bothering” others with your concerns? Do you want to feel more in touch with your body and your sexual self? Do you and your partner(s) want to refocus on the relationship and strengthen your connection? Do you want to take back control from the problems you feel are ruling your life? These things are all achievable when therapy includes the two most important aspects of successful treatment: hope and an authentic connection with an empathetic therapist who sees, accepts and validates the true you.

"I work with folks who would like their perspective on life to change and grow in ways that supports greater well-being, empowerment, and a sense of balance. Life is constantly changing and presenting challenges, and I support people who are ready and willing to look honestly at themselves, to learn new skills, and to make changes that may initially be scary but - with my support and growth of your confidence - changes that are possible. I also work with couples who wish to deepen their relationship, to be more present with one another, and to communicate more effectively."

"I think of the therapeutic relationship as a workshop where clients can plan, tinker, experiment, test, problem solve, and refine parts of themselves, their relationships, and their lives with my unwavering support. It's a place and time where we can collaborate on what might need to change, what tools are necessary for the task, and on the ways it might begin to unfold. I create and hold a safe place for clients to ponder, practice, and consider change-- especially when they struggle to maintain that space for themselves. As a trauma informed practitioner, I am able to ground and contain stressful affect to help clients feel held."
