About

You have worlds to explore within yourself, so much strength to uncover, feelings to connect with, and pain to heal. You are the driver to your destination in therapy, and as the counselor, I am only the passenger. I want to be witness to your process and help establish your personal power so that you may feel confident in your innate ability to work toward balance. I know that going to counseling can be scary because of the growth and multifaceted change that often takes place. Change is overwhelming, that is why my constant aim is for you to feel safe, seen, and heard. Whatever life has thrown your way, we will face it together.
With a foundation in a holistic and integrative approach to wellness, I always consider culture, physical and neurological health, community, spirituality, and connection with the earth. I use a person-centered feminist approach, informed by Internal Family Systems, with Acceptance and Commitment therapy as a tool for change.
I am based out of Inside Health Institute, a non-profit organization providing naturopathic medicine visits and mental health counseling services at whatever cost you can afford. Although my openings at the non-profit are currently full, I have availability in my private practice at Whole Therapies Collective for new clients.
