Whatever your reasons for coming to therapy, I will meet all parts of you with respect and non-judgment. My sense of humor and realness helps you get comfortable, and even laugh sometimes; my grounded, caring presence makes it safer to talk about and experience challenging emotions. Therapy work with me involves thoughts and insights from the mind, feelings and sensations living in the body, and relationships with others in the world (particularly the one between client and therapist); a balance of resources which we will use to help you explore, understand, integrate, and move yourself closer to healing.

I am a licensed psychologist offering psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, couples, and infant-parent dyads. I approach my work from a psychodynamic, social/racial justice and queer feminist lens. I believe our childhood experiences and attachment relationships with our caregivers, in combination with our various social identity markers, shape us into the adults we grow up to become. I seek to understand each person's unique life circumstances and experiences so I can best support them in their process of healing and growth. Underlying my work is a deep commitment to interrupting the intergenerational transmission of trauma and oppression.
