I help individuals and couples to feel better about themselves and find relief from challenging times in life. I've seen how much difficulty can exist at certain times in life. However, I've also learned that even the most difficult problems can be overcome, and how this is possible.

Do you feel stuck? Out of control? Are you trying to ignore the nagging thing you pretend isn't there but keeps getting bigger? “But I’m too busy.” “Maybe if I ignore it, it will just go away.” But it doesn’t. Maybe it’s your relationship with your partner or family. Maybe your past keeps catching up with you in ways you can’t explain—flashbacks, nightmares, unexplained anger. Maybe there's something you are doing - either too much or too little of - to try to avoid the problem... Drinking? Eating? Sleeping? Social media? Sex? It could be anything.

I provide therapy that is collaborative. We are getting to know you together - your strengths and weaknesses, the problems you currently face, and how you may use the insights you develop in therapy to better address those problems. I help slow things down enough so we can look at the patterns that at other times happen automatically or too quickly for reflection. I listen to what may be causing you pain in the here and now, but also take into account past experiences and relationships.

I have worked with trauma and injustice for over 10 years, and this work has repeatedly shown me that connection is the key to unlock healing and move forward in unexpected directions. I strive to provide a therapeutic space where clients can experience something radically different and feel safe to practice new and courageous ways of relating to themselves and to others. I have successfully helped teenagers, adults and couples experience reparation from unresolved events, peace from anxiety and acceptance in times of grief. My frame is justice-focused, anti-oppressive and identity-affirming.

I believe that people thrive when they are authentically connected to themselves and each other. When these connections are disrupted by fear, trauma, depression, loss, or some life transition, it can be helpful to have a place to rediscover and repair those connections. Having a safe environment where an empathic presence and a constructive perspective are provided can help to restore stability, reinforce your strengths, and allow you to grow and build toward living your fullest life possible. My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, practical, and goal oriented.

Sometimes accepting ourselves and where we are in our life journey can be challenging. Over the past decade I’ve had the privilege of supporting individuals accept and manage through difficult periods of their lives. When the dust settles from crisis, people often find themselves feeling the most alone and vulnerable. Part of my job is to hold some of your pain in order to help create space for healing.
