I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

My approach to therapy is grounded in relational, body-centered, trauma-informed, and anti-oppression frameworks and practices. I believe deeply that people are the experts of their own experience and work to create a space that honors all of who we are. I bring an understanding of the impact of oppression and violence on our lives and the communities we are a part of. I see therapy as a process that is active, experiential, and collaborative. In our work together, I integrate mind-body awareness and value the big shifts, small moments, and non-linear paths that often characterize both therapy and healing.

The longer I practice as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, the more my work has come to focus on empowerment. Sometimes people and systems hold us back, sometimes we hold ourselves back, and far too often we sell ourselves short. I can help you navigate these problems as you work toward becoming the best version of yourself. Everyone’s journey and their needs in psychotherapy are different and I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. However, I generally view the goal of psychotherapy as getting relief from your most pressing problems while developing the insights and skills to help you manage long after therapy has ended.

I help people with a critical inner voice develop acceptance and compassion for themselves. My specialities include trauma, anxiety, depression, codependency, finding life/work balance, and providing LGBTQ+ affirming services. I've worked with many folks who grew up with alcoholism or substance abuse in the home, parents who fought often, and those who felt like they had to walk on egg shells. I've also worked with folks who have family members with addiction, those who identify as people pleasers, and those struggling to have fulfilling relationships. I'm especially passionate about helping other helpers, activists, and educators.

Square pegs and round holes; We spend a large portion of our lives wondering who we are and where we are headed. Trying to reconcile who we believe we are and what others want us to be. We experience shame about our identities and what we enjoy. Finding ourselves trying to fit ourselves into the outer expectations, only to find we feel less connected, less clear and less deserving. This is the human experience. We share it. You deserve a therapist that connects to, sees, hears, respects and appreciates you as your authentic self.
