About

My clients are sophisticated, insightful, and curious about themselves and others. Yet they may have found themselves feeling chronically depressed, anxious, or lost in life, and they might struggle with long-term patterns in their lives and relationships that they just can’t seem to change. Perhaps they have struggled with trauma or other experiences, thoughts, and feelings they fear nobody would understand. I enjoy working with people who desire not just new insights into their mind, but also a new way of experiencing themselves and others.
Everyone has their own unique story, and my goal is to help each client become the director of their own story by empowering them to take charge of their life. I specialize in working with relationships and their challenges, mood and anxiety issues, complex and/or attachment trauma, and non-traditional relationships and sexualities (eg: polyamory, kink).
My passion is helping people navigate the complexities of life and relationships. I strive to create an atmosphere of warmth, safety, and curiosity in therapy. We will work together to help you make greater sense of your life and improve how you feel. I look forward to seeing what we can discover together.
