I am a relational therapist who supports people in their desire to live their best lives by tapping into their inner strengths and learning new strategies. I enjoy working creatively and collaboratively in individual and family sessions that focus on the whole person and the systems of which they are a part. Life is complex, and I bring a realistic, empathetic, and non-judgemental presence to witness and support you as you explore whatever brings you to therapy. I specialize in trauma at any age and working with parents who are struggling to understand their child's difficult behaviors.

Are you curious about exploring and embracing the messiness (and goodness) that comes with being human? Let's lean in together. In a few words, my style is down to earth, collaborative, and relational. Laughter = therapeutic; swearing = more than welcome. Oftentimes, the universe seems to enjoy throwing curveballs right when life starts to settle. I join clients in navigating those ‘unexpecteds’ and strengthening into their authentic selves in the process.

Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge--Audre Lorde. Attending to feelings, beliefs, and behaviors in a safe and accepting environment is at the forefront of our work together. Learning about the influence of past and present psychological, social, and cultural experience through ongoing self exploration is essential to understanding your internal world. Discovering the origin of and meanings attached to symptoms of depression, anxiety, conflict in personal/professional relationships, or difficulty managing emotions/behaviors are central to my approach. Increased awareness leads to clarity, and ultimately a greater capacity to gain mastery over your feelings, thoughts, and actions.

The world may be telling you that you are not enough, that you need to change in order to fit in. Sometimes that pressure to fit neatly into a particular box is more than you feel you can overcome on your own. That is where therapy can help. My practice is greatly informed by Anna Quindlen's quote: "The thing that is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself". You do not need to change to meet the world's expectations, you are already perfect as you are and I want to help you believe that.

I believe therapy can be a space to try on new ways of thinking and being, building insight and self-awareness so you can overcome blocks to creating the life you deeply desire. You can expect me to work hard to understand you and your history, offering an equal mix of nurturing, education and clear sighted perspective. We’ll work together to chart a vision for the road ahead, noting areas for growth, needed skills, and current strengths and resources. In session, and in life, my style is informal, warm, playful and compassionate. I bring a body-positive, sex-positive, feminist and anti-oppressive lens to my work.

I am a trauma-informed bodyworker and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner offering a body-centered approach for the healing of trauma and chronic pain. Traditional therapy approaches often have difficulty addressing the bodily effects of trauma, anxiety and depression. Habits and patterns that get "stuck" in the body can keep these types of issues from resolving, even after many years of successful therapy. As an adjunct to traditional therapy, my body-centered approach to Somatic Experiencing provides a unique opportunity to support the physical integration of mental and emotional change that help people recovering from trauma to truly FEEL better.
