The task of finding a new therapist to walk with you in your journey toward growth, hope, and healing can be so difficult! My style is relational and dynamic, meaning that I hold the past and present together as we work through your story to examine places you feel stuck or want to make changes. Your safety in the therapeutic relationship is important in order to facilitate the exploration of what can be painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. I integrate evidence-based techniques, cultural humility, and a nonjudgemental perspective to help you find your strengths and meet your life goals.

I work with you to identify the impact of difficult life experiences while also helping you to find your power to create the change you desire. Frequently addressed topics include relationships, grief and loss, chronic stress, trauma, identity development, depression, anxiety, culture, sexuality, gender, school problems, addictions, and court-involvement.

I have had the privilege to work with people diverse in culture, ethnicity, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, spirituality, life experiences, and social capital. I treat children, adolescents, adults, and families. I am also trained in ARC, EMDR, and TF-CBT.
