About

The difficulties of everyday life can sometimes become overwhelming. When on top of those difficulties we add the stresses of illness, anxiety, depression, our identity, our love lives and more-we can easily feel burdened to our breaking point. We just don't feel heard. Sometimes these situations can linger for months or years, making it hard to meet our obligations and live our lives in the way we would like. However, those difficulties and stresses don't need to define who we are-or where we're going. It's my goal as a therapist to help you tell your story.
We each have our own strengths and abilities, but they can be difficult to recognize and access. I hope to help you develop insight, clarity, and motivation; love for who you are and what you offer. You are important, worthy, and deserving of a life that better serves you and your needs. The journey to that life can be uncomfortable at times, but worth it!
I have experience with teens, adults, and older adults (55+), chronic illness, mood disorders, grief, and daily stress. I am LGBT+ affirmative, sex + kink positive, polyamory positive, nerd friendly, and an intersectional feminist. Familiar with most major religious traditions and accepting of religious practices and beliefs.
