If you are looking for a safe space to explore your feelings, process grief, heal from trauma, or just navigate this messy, beautiful thing we call life, then I might be a good fit. Growth happens in connection, and I strive to create a strong therapeutic relationship where clients feel safe, supported, and resilient. I work with teens and adults managing issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, relationship dynamics, and loss. I have advanced training in perinatal mental health and lived experience with birth-related trauma. I am neurodiversity-affirming and a queer ally.

You have the resume you should be proud of. You have worked hard to earn all that you have. You have people who love you in your life, yet you feel (incomplete) like you are fooling those around you. Everyone believes you are the strong one and have everything together. Nevertheless, you don't see that reflected in the mirror. You feel deeply flawed, unworthy, and the thought “what is wrong with me” constantly plays, like a broken record, in your mind. In order to compensate, you are hard on yourself, overachieve, spread yourself thin, and keep complaints to a minimum. The truth is, you are not broken and you don’t have to suffer.

I enjoy consulting with adolescents, adults, and couples, and specialize in treating first-time mothers. As a new patient and I develop a way of working together, I focus on building a connection, shaping goals and symptom relief. While I address these immediate issues, I am also thinking more globally about what these particular experiences mean for this particular person. My style is both conversational and collaborative, and I tend to switch back and forth between a close-in, practical approach toward symptoms and dilemmas, and a wider view, to help patients make more permanent changes in their lives.

In therapy and beyond, I believe in the power of self-expression to help us grow and experience the best that life has to offer. I see therapy as a place to better get to know ourselves, process experiences and emotions, and hear a different perspective about challenges that we may struggle to see clearly. Therapy can be many things: a place to clarify our identity, strengthen communication skills, change habits, or support mindfulness in our everyday lives.

You are a high achieving individual in many ways, but seem to come up short when it comes to having meaningful, successful relationships with others and struggle with self confidence. You have been defined by others in your life as “successful” but are still left feeling unfilled and unhappy. Maybe negative thoughts swirl around your head when you are trying to get work done or fall asleep at night. Or maybe you experience difficulty concentrating because you are so worried if the person next to you is upset with you and constantly worry if you can make the people around you happy.

I am passionate about bringing healing to all aspects of a person. I specialize in trauma, complex trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I take an eclectic approach in my counseling practice and use the techniques that work for each individual in order to bring harmony to all parts of a person’s internal system. Trauma causes deep and lasting effects on the survivor's thought processes, nervous system, and physical body. Behaviors and reactions of trauma survivors can be seemingly unpredictable, confusing, contradictory and lead to pathologizing diagnosis.

The therapeutic process can be daunting and vulnerable, but my goal is to journey with you, providing complete support as you seek balance and fulfillment in your life. Witnessing individuals uncover better, truer versions of themselves as they learn how to manage and tend to old wounds and build confidence is the most rewarding part of my work as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am a curious, inquisitive person by nature who loves to laugh, explore, take risks, dive deep, and connect with others. This inherent nature makes therapy a natural fit for me.

Sometimes our lives can look fine "on paper" but it still feels like something is missing. Not knowing what that something is can be stressful, and even knowing exactly what that something is can be frustrating when knowing isn't enough. Whether you're struggling with your relationship, work, family, self-esteem, or sense of meaning and purpose, that struggle becomes heavier by trying to manage it all on your own. The truth is that nobody does life on their own, so you shouldn’t feel like you have to.
