Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

I’m a LCSW with many years of experience working with adolescents, families, and young adults. I believe that we all are powerful and resilient beyond measure, but sometimes find ourselves caught in patterns that no longer serve us. The teen years are a time of inquiry and creation, but also a time of confusion, fear, and angst. I find delight in walking this part of their journey with them as they navigate their way into adulthood. I believe that one’s experience in therapy is most impacted by the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. To be seen and heard is the greatest gift we can give to another.
