Feeling isolated, unsure of your purpose, stressed in your relationships, or ashamed or confused about your thoughts, actions or feelings? You are not alone. Mental health, relationship conflict, social/economic stressors, and life during COVID can all make it challenging to feel truly connected. But experiencing connection – whether with yourself, loved ones, pets, or the natural world – is the cornerstone to wellness, and it's worth the vulnerability it takes to get there. Together we'll explore how to support you in building connections and coping skills that nourish you and your relationships for the long term.
My areas of focus are trauma, chronic mental illness or disability, minority stress, culturally specific therapy, identity and life purpose, and family & relationship therapy. I focus on working with romantic and platonic relationships, families coping with addiction, parents with adolescent or adult children, and individual teens, adults and elders.
I practice the philosophy that choosing connection is worth it through direct client collaboration: you'll know where we're going, what we're doing, and why, at every stage of therapy. I welcome LGBTQ, disabled, and ethnic & racial minority individuals and families, and hold these identities myself. Reach out today – choose connection and thrive!

I work with clients who are navigating anxiety, trauma, and relationship challenges. I utilize a somatic (listening to the body) approach that does not require us to begin with reviewing your full trauma history, unless you want to. I tend to see clients between six months to two years, but work collaboratively with you to customize our treatment plan, goals, and timeline to meet your needs.

I often use Narrative Therapy. In your first session we'll explore what brought you to therapy and make a collaborative plan of action. With Narrative, we'll look at how internalized beliefs about yourself may support painful stories that make moving forward individually or in relationships challenging. During treatment we'll collaboratively craft new narratives that feel both empowering and true.
