About

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 in quarantine 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 haul.
My areas of focus are trauma, chronic mental illness or disability, minority stress, culturally specific therapy, personal identity & life purpose, and family & relationship therapy. I focus on working with romantic & 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!
