Suffering presents itself in a number of ways- behaviors and relationships we desire to change, uncomfortable emotions, chronic health problems, and feeling out of touch with meaning in our lives. I aim to help clients not only feel better, but live a life according to their values. I work with adults across the lifespan, and address a range of concerns from adjustment to life changes, stress and health management, relationship concerns, and significant mental health conditions. I particularly enjoy helping others overcome trauma, phobias, panic disorder, and depression. I support diversity- all are welcome, including non traditional relationships; sex positive.

Taking the first step towards therapy is hard, and taking that first step when your concerns are sex-related can feel even harder. Most of us are taught from a young age that sex is a shameful topic that is not to be discussed openly— that any concerns, difficulties, or dissatisfaction you may experience related to sex, sexuality, or gender are to be ashamed of. I’m here to tell you that that is not true! Issues and concerns with sex and sexuality are very common, and it is healthy to talk to a therapist about them.

You’d like to meditate, but can’t seem to stick with it. Maybe you’ve had loss in your life and are trying to make sense of death. Or you’ve worked through healing some trauma and want a deeper step within. What are awakening and healing, and how do you see them in your own life? We can create a dynamic relationship between the two. ~~ How do we reconcile the inner and outer? How do we hold the importance of identity and social change?

When stress, anxiety, depression, grief, and other emotional distress occurs, I meet my clients where they are at. Just because we can do something alone, does not mean we have to.
