"My work is designed for individuals desiring something new, profound, and meaningful. My professional experience is reflected across the lifespan and in a variety of settings including trauma-work, college counseling, IOP/PHP hospital programming, depression, anxiety, self-injury, career changes, and identity exploration. I interweave evidence-based practice with an emphasis toward radical change to create concise, supportive, and tangible interventions. If you observe that you've been stuck for quite awhile, I'm particularly adept at providing perspective. Lastly, I am also co-hosting Mindful Chatter a podcast centering on vulnerability/mindfulness around challenging topics."

"It can take great courage to get uncomfortable and come to therapy. As a yoga instructor and counselor, I am often asking my students to acknowledge any uncomfortable feelings that come up in a posture, so that they might gain a better understanding of them and begin to push past it. I ask them to stay mindful of any negative thoughts going on their head and if they can instead focus on their breath, remind themselves this posture is not permanent, and to maybe even smile. In session we will focus on thoughts, emotions, actions, and limiting beliefs to continue to develop a sense of confidence in ourselves."

"Satisfaction and mental health is directly tied to the quality of our connections with others. Therapy helps by providing you space to work on problems productively in a relationship that is authentic, supportive, and attuned to you. I believe the goal of therapy is two-fold: to find relief from your most pressing problems while also starting a process of self-knowledge and empowerment to help you solve problems and create change long after therapy has ended. The majority of my work is with the LGBTQ+ communities with all manner of concerns but I have extensive work with people of all races, religions, ethnicities, and backgrounds."
