About

“This shouldn’t be happening to me”. “Why can’t I feel better”? “I shouldn’t be struggling as much as I am right now”. If you’ve ever said any of these things, you’re in good company. I provide therapy for high performers, the people that always get stuff done and put others ahead of their own needs. Together my clients and I explore deep patterns of relating to themselves and to others that influence the way that they show up in relationships. As a former high-performer myself, I get how scary it can feel to put yourself first. It can feel "wrong" or uncomfortable. The cool thing with therapy is, you won't be doing this work alone!
Specialties include providing emotional support and behavioral activation for Vaginismus (avoidance &pain w/ sex) and supporting people in the perinatal and postpartum stages of life. I am grounded in a Client-Centered approach and skillfully integrate: Psychodynamic, Attachment, Motivational Interviewing, DBT, CBT, and mindfulness skills. I am HAES aligned.
People will often say therapy is “just talking”. And there is a lot of talking that happens. As a clinical therapist, I have a highly trained ear to listen to what is not being said as well as what is. This therapeutic perspective can help us pay attention to patterns that may repeat in different areas of your life and how they impact your life experience.
