About

I work with people who have been told they're “too sensitive” or “too much,” feel misunderstood, or feel alienated from the mainstream. I work with non-traditional partners looking for a therapist who "gets it." You are not too intense, too sensitive, or too "out there." The whole of you is welcome with me. I tailor my approach to my clients' goals and needs. I believe human beings are complex individuals with unique stories that inform their present reality, behavior, wants and needs, and feelings.
I am direct, warm, and engaging. I will challenge and encourage you. I’m a psychodynamic, attachment-based, trauma-informed therapist. I integrate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and evidence-based modalities. In other words, we will explore the deeper aspects of your experience and collaborate on the practical problems arising in your life.
We will increase awareness, get unstuck from unhelpful patterns, strengthen relationships, calm anxieties, and learn to set boundaries and communicate. My job is to empower you to develop strategies to help you show up in your life the way you want to. I will be there with you to support, challenge, ask guiding questions, to share insights and resources.
