We all have points in our lives when outside support helps us move through difficult times, grief, stuckness, and transitions. I am committed to your healing and help you understand your family history and relationships better. Together we recognize and connect with your core self and strengths to support the life you really want to live. I am a white, cis-gender queer therapist. I believe our identities and social locations matter in the therapy relationship (race, class, ability, culture, etc.) and in your healing. I believe we all need to heal from white supremacy and support this in our work.

As a therapist, I start from a space of curiosity for exploration and affirmation without judgement. I view therapy as a tool to support your growth, healing and self-awareness, founded on a unique relationship with each person I see in therapy. Many people I work with have experienced traumatic events and oppression from systems that target certain people for exclusion and violence. Despite the obstacles that can prevent us from experiencing connection, I believe that every person is worthy of love and community.

Everybody comes to therapy to "get better." In most cases they do, if only from the placebo effect. Talk therapy, e.g - IS helpful for problem-solving, gaining perspectives, sorting out relationship difficulties, etc. But it rarely resolves symptoms of depression, anxiety, or PTSD that are a consequence of adverse life events or psychological trauma. Fortunately, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), research and my 20 years of experience with it show, DOES help resolve symptoms with such core causes - sometimes rapidly. Following our work with EMDR Therapy, people often tell me the experience has been life-changing.
