I am a trauma-informed therapist currently working with people ages 5-22.
We all go through hard times, and having someone in our corner can help us navigate them. Youth and adolescents especially need a space to connect and process through their relationships and struggles. It is in this safe space that children and youth can begin to build skills and correct behavior that may seem concerning or perplexing.

I specialize in working with trauma, anxiety, highly sensitive persons, attachment, and identity issues.
Through somatic therapy one can learn how the mind-body forms and interacts with specific environments. It is from this place that a vast amount of untapped resources can be found and the innate wisdom of the body resides. Allow me to support you in connecting to this place within yourself and disentangling from your habits and barriers to live a fuller life. We will work together to analyze and change old patterns to form new habits. I am certified in animal-assisted therapy and work with a variety of furry co-therapists. I am kink-positive and work with consensual non-monogamy. I look forward to supporting your journey!

While I don't view caring for our mental health as a checklist, I do have a strong passion in helping you navigate self-esteem challenges, anxiety, depression, life changes and struggles, trauma, PTSD, mood issues, and relationship challenges.
It can be difficult to start therapy. The desire to seek out change and dig into your feelings can often be coupled with feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or not knowing if it's the right time or decision for you. Whatever your reasons or hesitations, choosing to start therapy is courageous and once you arrive at this decision, you're not in it alone.

If you are troubled by upsetting memories, have experienced trauma, or find yourself repeating painful life patterns over and over, EMDR can help.
Life is ever changing and evolving. At times change brings with it a sense of excitement and joy, and at other times a turn of events leaves us disappointed, overwhelmed, sad, or disconnected from others and ourselves. Although therapy cannot stop the ups and downs of living, it can help us develop new strategies, new perceptions, and new behaviors that transform feelings of self-doubt and despair into resilient feelings of inner strength and fulfillment. I provide a safe, confidential and caring environment, and bring a heartfelt and genuine approach to support you in finding joy and inner peace.

Whether you’re looking to heal wounds, understand your role in the world, or develop practices to support a lifetime of wellbeing, I offer a non-judgemental space to explore what it means to be you in a complex world. We will not only examine the broader systems and dynamics that have informed your life story, but work together to explore your sense of self, obtain clarity about how you got here, and develop a pathway to healing and acceptance together. Drawing from research on neuroscience and mindfulness, I will help you increase attunement with your body and its unique safety signals using parts-work and somatics.

In addition to trauma modalities, I integrate mindfulness, internal family systems, attachment and polyvagal theories, and neuroscience.
Restoring balance and healing our self-limiting beliefs really is possible. Often, our life stressors point to where we need to heal. My passion is working with folks who are motivated for that change. I work with brain-based psychotherapies of Brainspotting and EMDR to treat anxiety/depression, grief and loss, PTSD, past traumas or current triggers, abuse, concussion, birth/pregnancy issues, chronic pain, sports performance, performance expansion and more. We'll explore the origins and impacts of distress, develop self-compassion and grounding practices, process trauma and negative thoughts, and re-regulate your nervous system.

Let me help you step into your subconscious, the seat of emotions, where historical trauma resides and allow yourself to be free, to let go, and engage your authentic self in the healing process.
Our subconscious mind holds the memories and perceptions of every experience from childhood to adulthood. And as we continue our journey, the unresolved past continues to negatively affect our bodies, influence our thoughts, behaviors and everyday life on an unconscious level. We may not understand why we feel or react as we do to certain situations or why the same patterns show up every time and unexplained symptoms and/or circumstances keep repeating themselves. Often this prevents us from moving forward with our lives, achieve clarity and authenticity.
