"Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

"Whatever you have lived through--healing is possible. I provide therapy for people living outside of the mainstream, whether because of values and ideals or personal identity. Therapy with me doesn't require that you or I believe there is anything wrong with you. Instead it is a place where both of us work collaboratively and creatively to develop an environment where you can take more and more risks to be yourself. It is a place to keep growing. It is a place to get real about what matters to you and what challenges you. Keywords: radical, queer, artists, activists, social justice, progressive"

Maybe you already have a supportive community, exercise regularly and do your best at “self-care”, but it’s been a struggle lately to keep it together.

"I believe that healing is a process of letting go of what is not us - our learned ways of coping with life - so that our essence may express itself in the world more freely. Through following the wisdom of the body and spirit, a safe therapy relationship supports the organic movement towards wholeness that is waiting to unfold. I work with adults and children to help increase their felt sense of safety in their bodies and to support mental and emotional well-being. Together we can understand how early experiences create templates for relationship, and learn to shift and transform what no longer serves you."
