"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.

"You might be grappling with grief, stress, relationship troubles, or a separation and the aftermath of loss. Maybe you're an adult who was once a neglected or traumatized kid, trying to have close relationships. Or you're a teacher with intense perfectionism, an artist whose self-criticism blocks creative projects, or an athlete plateauing in sport. Maybe you're a therapist struggling to navigate her personal history and clinical work, or a white person wanting to address racism. Coping mechanisms like food, alcohol, exercise, are your "game face," but you wish you could let people know the real you."

Her specialization is working with trauma survivors and their families. Because trauma is stored in our brains and bodies, she draws on somatic, experiential, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, and family systems clinical frameworks to support clients in their healing. She is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a treatment approach that reduces trauma symptoms more quickly than conventional talk therapy."
