People seek therapy for so many reasons, but mostly we all want to feel loved, safe and understood. We want to feel a sense purpose & feel good enough as we are, and yet so many of us struggle to feel these ways. Sometimes our lives look very different than we imagined & we need help making sense out of things. We might be feeling numb or disconnected, uncertain or alone. We might be questioning the direction we are heading and need to find some hope or clarity. Self compassion & radical self-acceptance are cornerstones of my work. I'd like to explore these concepts with you and help you make meaning of your life and sense of self.
I specialize in working LGBTQ+ folks and/or artists/creative folks. I enjoy working with individuals/couples/ families who embody a strong curiosity & commitment to learning how to heal their hearts, minds and spirits and feel genuine connection to themselves and others. I am certified in modalities related to trauma, addiction & mindfulness-based practices.
I believe we heal in relationship with others, including our unique and sacred relationship with our therapist. I aim to provide a safe, connected space for people to find meaning, value, and purpose in their lives. My approach is non-judgmental, direct and empathetic. Collaboratively we will find solutions and invite and hold space for all our big feelings.
