As humans, we are always gravitating towards healing, trying to right ourselves and to shift from surviving back into living. But sometimes, we get stuck with uncomfortable emotions that we aren't exactly sure what to do with. In therapy, I offer a safe place to unpack all of that uncomfortable stuff and decide what is worth keeping and what is just too heavy to keep lugging around day after day. If you are ready to unpack, I am here for it. If you want to learn how to be assertive, how to set boundaries effectively and how to show up for yourself even when others can't or don't, I am absolutely on board.
I specialize in treating trauma, normal responses to those awful things that happen to us in the span of a life. This can include anxiety and depression and being unsure of who you are anymore. I am also passionate about helping to manage chronic illness, breaking codependence, recovering from narcissistic abuse and affirming neurodivergence.
If you are unsure of where to start, I can help with that. In my 16 years of experience as a therapist, I have learned that education is the key. I want to create a compassionate, inclusive environment where identity is affirmed and celebrated. I also provide clinical supervision for provisionally licensed therapists.
