I have a strong capacity and appreciation for working with others who are facing intense or discouraging life circumstances. With openness and warmth, therapy can be a collaborative process. Sessions can be adapted to your goals and to what arises during the course of the week. I find approaches that are most effective and meaningful to you so that each session helps your growth towards living a life of wellbeing and resilience. In my work, it is important to provide a space for you that feels open, non-judgmental, curious, and direct.

I specialize in life transitions, gender, LGBT, trauma, and mood. I offer both EMDR and traditional psychotherapy with somatic and ecotherapy influences. Much of my work has focused on empowering the marginalized aspects of individuals including those who may experience themselves as queer, artistic/edgy, people of color, or simply feeling very othered.

Often, we may find that the support of close friends or family does not adequately meet our challenges or questions. One of the ways that psychotherapy is most unique is that, unlike in other relationships, the experience of giving and receiving is different. The listening within psychotherapy is developed with care so that the focus can remain on you.
