We all arrive on this Earth with a plan. Sometimes the plan gets muddled, confusing and scary. Sometimes our labeling of these experiences as “bad” can create stagnation in growth and deny us the insight that we need in order to stretch. This is where our work comes into play. Growth is constant. Growth is never ending, especially during challenging times/barriers. However, we only grow when we embrace and feel curious about the uncomfortability. I work with youth, adolescents, & young adults in the LGBTQIA+ community. Folks of all races and ethnicities are welcome!

Often people come to me with depression, trauma, anxiety, relationship issues, and eating disorders. They want to live with less shame and more ease through out their days and lives. They want to be able to feel safe, seen, heard, and understood as much as possible. I am passionate about serving these marginalized folks and acknowledge intersectionality of various identities within each individual. Sliding scale options are full at this time.

I work with folks who experience complex trauma, grief, couples, neurodivergent folks, LGBTQIA+, and people who feel things really intensely. It can feel isolating to navigate trauma and other emotional experiences without someone to witness and be on the journey with you. Browsing psychology today profile pages, especially during a pandemic, can feel exhausting and limiting. I am a firm believer that having a positive relationship with a therapist is one of the most important parts of therapeutic work.

I'M CURRENTLY FULL AND CAN'T TAKE REFERRALS. Life can often feel difficult, confusing or overwhelming. Seeking help and finding the right counseling relationship can be challenging as well. My goal is to help you connect to your own inner guidance system. As an existentialist and a feminist counselor, it is my belief that people need to find a sense of purpose and meaning within themselves because the world outside doesn't always make sense. The stories we have told ourselves or been told about ourselves can have a significant impact on how we feel. The result can be depression, anxiety, anger, hopelessness, or confusion.
