If you feel like you “have it all,” but you can’t shake this nagging feeling that something is missing, feel overwhelmed trying to manage your multiple roles (parent, spouse, partner, friend, co-worker), or are struggling to navigate fertility treatment as a queer person, get pregnant, be pregnant, or transition into parenthood, I can help. I don't practice one-size-fits-all therapy. I’ll follow your lead and use the creative process as a guide in sharing your experiences. I work with adults seeking support for perinatal mental health, trauma, and overall wellbeing with LGBTQIA + affirming art therapy and counseling.

In my daily life and professional work I strive to be body positive, antiracist, anti-ableist, lgbtqia + affirming, and neurodiversity affirming.
Psychological evaluations are my area of expertise and passion. My goal when conducting assessments is to identify an individual’s areas of strength and weakness in order to provide recommendations for treatment, work and/or school, interpersonal relationships, and daily living. In the context of assessments, I can provide diagnoses and second opinions. A diagnosis is only one aspect of the process, however, and I emphasize understanding underlying cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal processes, and how these combine and manifest in daily life.

Does is feel like anxiety and depression are taking over your life? Are you fighting that powerless feeling, trying to hold on to hope, determined to find some way out of that trap? You may already know where it all started or you may have no answers to the "why's". I can help you find, name and clear out the roots of your suffering. Once the roots are cleared, you will find that change is easy and natural. Clients tell me that it sometimes feels like a miracle, but the power of this therapy is rooted in science. It is simply working with an understanding of how memories are held in our bodies and subconscious mind.

Feeling stuck often indicates that we are repeating old patterns and allowing habitual thoughts and feelings to interfere with the present.
