About

It is in our nature to live our lives through stories. Often our stories can become overshadowed by the effects of problems in our lives. Trauma, anxiety, depression and difficult life transitions may have taken you away from what you value most, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, stuck or disconnected. My goal is to honor all parts of your story, providing a compassionate space for you to heal and re-claim your own agency in your life.
I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Board-Ceritifed Music Therapist. Specializing in trauma, I value a compassionate and collaborative approach, supporting clients in re-connecting with their own authenticity and resilience. I have worked extensively with LGBTQ+ individuals, teens and adults in all levels of clinical care.
The very fact that you are here seeking therapy speaks to your inherent resourcefulness and drive towards change and hope. Through our work together we will balance acceptance and change, connecting the dots between present and past, empowering you to live a fulfilling and authentic life. Please contact me for a free consult to learn more!
