If you're considering therapy, you may feel that you're not quite living up to your potential, not finding the connection you want in relationships, or generally feeling stuck, anxious, or frustrated without knowing why. Feelings like these are more common than you think, and therapy can help you move forward with more self-awareness and confidence.

I specialize in emotional trauma, the childhood wounds that hold you back in your life, career, or relationship. I enjoy supporting people interested in insight-based depth therapy, particularly motherless daughters, purpose-driven social entrepreneurs, artists, creatives, and multiracial women.

Therapy offers a corrective relationship that empowers you to live as vibrantly as you were meant to. My style is nonjudgmental, supportive, and attentive to what lies beneath the surface of our interactions. My clinical approach blends relational/analytic, mindfulness-based, and Internal Family Systems ("parts") work.
