Everyone deserves to feel at home in their body. I work using an intersectional feminist perspective with a focus on trauma, gender, sexuality and wellness and specialize in working with LGBTQ+, TGNCNB and queer identified communities. Working with a therapist as you strive towards your goals of healing can be an act of liberation and a vital part of envisioning a just future for yourself and the world you live in. The mind and body are impacted when you experience stress and trauma and my approach is to address both using tools like meditation, EFT, guided visualization, and body movement.

Clients often come to me with some version of “stuckness”—whether that is a couple or family having the same fight over and over, finding oneself repeatedly in the same kinds of relationships, or feeling lost and without direction. I believe that everyone’s feelings and behaviors, as confounding as they may be on the surface, are rooted in something real and valuable. Our feelings and patterns give us important data on what we’ve needed for protection in our lives, and through a close relationship with my clients, I can be an active partner in helping them discover how to no longer have that protection keep them from what they want.
