Issues such as self-harm, suicidal ideation , and trauma history are just a few of my specialties in working with high acuity level clients. Having experience as a crisis counselor, I feel passionate about the work I do with clients who are in need of a high level of care and need their immediate needs met. I can help my clients achieve goals related to refraining from self harm, finding closure with their trauma history, and working through things like depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. I am excited to offer a safe space to process and meet you where you are today.

I enjoy working with women and girls who are experiencing issues such as trauma, eating disorders, relationship struggles, self-esteem, grief and loss, anxiety, motherhood, depression, suicidal thoughts, stress, familial conflict, and navigating life transitions while developing a unique set of coping skills to fit you.
I help women and girls unlock their true potential in therapy by providing a space that is filled with empathy, authenticity, and inspiration. My holistic approach to therapy is hands-on and client-centered, as each woman's story is unique. I believe that one of the first and most powerful steps in therapy is simply developing an innate sense of self awareness around your thoughts, emotions, and story while learning to make meaning from past experiences. Providing a relatable and modern approach to therapy is one of my main goals as I help you learn to break free from negative patterns that keep getting you stuck.

Congratulations on taking this step in your journey towards health and healing. It is my goal to help create a safe, nonjudgemental space for my clients to build a more compassionate relationship with their own pain and suffering. When we take a more compassionate and loving stance with our own pain, we can then begin to feel more empowered to move towards the things that we most deeply value and desire in life. You matter, your voice matters, your pain matters. It would be my honor to walk with you on your journey.

Our beautiful, messy, and complex stories shape us and stump us. Often we need and long for a space that let's us bring the whole story, the parts we treasure, and the parts that keep us stuck. Counseling can be that space. A space to interrupt our normal, and often chaotic rhythms, that tether us. A space to settle into a time to pause, reflect, and connect with ourselves. It can be a daring gift. A gift that I deeply hope brings meaning and understanding to your story, acceptance of the person you are, ways to get unstuck, and hope within the journey. I get it. Life's a mess and a wild ride. I hope to journey with you.

I truly believe that each client is the absolute expert on themselves and strive always to create space for clients to feel, be, and show up as their authentic selves. My approach is relational, casual, sex positive, and I take a systems approach to appreciating all the different factors that make up you and your unique experiences in the world. I specialize in trauma and complex trauma, and love to work with folks within the LGBTQIA2S+ community, folks struggling to navigate overwhelming emotions, folks struggling with boundary setting, and folks looking to explore and truly find love and compassion for themselves.

Being human. Along with the beautiful parts of life comes pain, struggle, and trauma. Everyone deserves a safe person with whom they can address these things and achieve real healing. Real relief. My first goal when beginning work with clients is to create that place where they can be their authentic selves...and feel accepted. To give them unconditional support without judgement. With this relationship formed, the deeper and holistic work can begin. Healing can happen. If you're struggling with self-esteem, trauma, mood disorders, substance use...or just struggling at all, we can work together to help you find peace.

Honest self-reflection is the answer to so many of our problems. At many points throughout our lives, we learn to ease life’s burdens by shutting down, acting out, or running away in attempts to find relief. Even our most destructive coping strategies were often the best answers we could find at the time to manage our anxieties, our desires, and our pain. When we allow ourselves the opportunity to slow down and reflect on our lives, both past and present, we deepen our understanding and insight. And, as we explore our lives without moralizing and harshness, we develop genuine compassion and greater trust in ourselves.

A good definition of life would include how one meets or exceeds each challenge along the journey. Those challenges can come in many forms, and there are times when speaking to a therapist can be of great assistance. As a therapist, my goal is to hold an emotionally safe space where any and all topics can be discussed and processed. Utilizing a client-centered and strengths-based approach, my practice is focused on helping individuals, couples and families to better themselves and increase their well-being.

Are you feeling stuck in patterns that prevent you from thriving and succeeding in ways that deep down you know you can? Perhaps your relationships are suffering, or intimacy feels hard or scary. Whether it's anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress, relationship problems, self-harm, addictions, or something else, my guess is these patterns emerged from a need to cope or survive. I know how hard finding an affirming and non-judgmental therapist can be, especially if you are LGBTQ+. A therapist who meets you exactly where you are right now can be the first step to building the life you want!

I most often hear that what is wanted from therapy is hope and relief. Relief from anxiety and sadness, hope for your relationship. I believe you can achieve self-esteem, hope, and healing. I've seen it happen many times. Trusting this process is the first step. You don't have to do this alone. I can stand with you and guide you towards a safe and secure self within life's ups and downs. You can learn how to regain a sense of self, heal from the past, and create a life worth living.

Arts and Hearts Therapy is a creative approach to your child's needs. Is your child currently struggling to manage their big feelings? Are they finding it overwhelming and challenging to navigate their relationships with family and friends, establish a positive self-image, or manage their academic responsibilities alongside extra-curricular activities? Would you like some guidance and support around boundary setting, positive discipline practices, and authentic communication with your child? I've worked with children in academic settings since 2006. Various components of Early Childhood Education play a big role in my practice.

"Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness" - Rollo May. Making space for ourselves to practice self-care, to care about others, and to live fully in the moment are areas of exploration that can be helpful in seeking healing in the space of therapy. One of my beloved aspects of being a therapist is having conversations about life and helping others grow into their full potential. Together, we create and grow this safe space in our therapeutic relationship, in order for you to share some of your most joyous moments or some of your darkest times.

A major thread in my work has been care for families. Having worked in volunteer and professional capacities with children and families for more than 15 years and as a mother of two lively boys, I have found myself with a deep care for helping people find their own healing to stop cycles of toxic stress. Growth from this type of work supports healthy relationships and parenting. Though motivated by my training, I am more inspired by the healing I have personally experienced through my own work in therapy. Healing is possible, and I have been trained in modalities that excite me about the possibilities for healing for my clients.
