I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

My approach to therapy is grounded in relational, body-centered, trauma-informed, and anti-oppression frameworks and practices. I believe deeply that people are the experts of their own experience and work to create a space that honors all of who we are. I bring an understanding of the impact of oppression and violence on our lives and the communities we are a part of. I see therapy as a process that is active, experiential, and collaborative. In our work together, I integrate mind-body awareness and value the big shifts, small moments, and non-linear paths that often characterize both therapy and healing.

I help people with a critical inner voice develop acceptance and compassion for themselves. My specialities include trauma, anxiety, depression, codependency, finding life/work balance, and providing LGBTQ+ affirming services. I've worked with many folks who grew up with alcoholism or substance abuse in the home, parents who fought often, and those who felt like they had to walk on egg shells. I've also worked with folks who have family members with addiction, those who identify as people pleasers, and those struggling to have fulfilling relationships. I'm especially passionate about helping other helpers, activists, and educators.

Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

Square pegs and round holes; We spend a large portion of our lives wondering who we are and where we are headed. Trying to reconcile who we believe we are and what others want us to be. We experience shame about our identities and what we enjoy. Finding ourselves trying to fit ourselves into the outer expectations, only to find we feel less connected, less clear and less deserving. This is the human experience. We share it. You deserve a therapist that connects to, sees, hears, respects and appreciates you as your authentic self.

Instead of feeling excitement about what's to come, you're paralyzed by insecurities--that deep down you might be a fraud, that you don’t measure up, that you’re never going to be “good enough”. These thoughts have seeped into your career, your education, your relationships. You feel isolated and hopeless, uncertain of what to do next. That voice of doubt inside of you won't shut up and it's holding you back from finding your purpose.
