"The focus of my practice is working with folx from various communities (women from all backgrounds, men of color, LGBTQ, varying spiritual and cultural beliefs, those who want to work through their racism to become allies, etc) figure out how to best navigate their lives. As we get older and become more successful, it becomes harder to just "figure things out", while also staying true to ourselves. I see my clients as the experts of their own lives and I am just here to help them figure out which route to take. "

"Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

Love is available in ourselves when we choose it, and choosing love in ourselves brings more love into our relationships. Yes, all relationships shift and change, and at the same time, love can regenerate again and again in the most mysterious moments and forms if we stay open and curious. The co-creative journey of intimate relationships is a fundamental part of our human well-being. You are lovable."

Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart.
