I am particularly experienced with military and Veteran communities, early and middle adulthood, and healthcare professionals.
Our connections with ourselves, others, and our communities can bring tremendous joy, meaning, and fulfillment. In contrast, experiences of disconnection can elicit profound anguish. A crucial step toward relief and enduring growth in psychotherapy starts with an affirming connection with your therapist. Beyond the reasons that bring you in, I am committed to listening to your life story and learning about you as a whole, imperfect person who deserves unconditional care and respect. From there, we can identify opportunities to relate to yourself and others in new ways.

We all have unique stories. Our pasts form us into who we are today, and oftentimes what once worked for us, no longer does. Therapy can help us to gain the insight to understand our stories, but more importantly, help us to choose new ways of living and engaging with ourselves, others, and the world. In the context of a supportive relationship, we will work together to move towards a life where you can experience more meaning and freedom.

Life can be hard sometimes, leaving us with bumps, bruises, and wounds that are difficult to heal on our own. Therapy is a space where you can better understand yourself so that you can heal and find a different and more meaningful way of being in the world. In the context of a safe and empathic therapeutic relationship, you are able to listen better to yourself, understand your emotional pain, and see the ways that it has impacted your life. It is through this process that the work of therapy can be both hard but ultimately rewarding.

The path each of us walks is unique. Sometimes, life diverges us from our path and we become lost or stuck, uncertain of how to move forward. I support those who arrive at this place by promoting exploration and reconnection to one's innate ability to heal and reclaim who they are. Individuals connect with me for a trusted space to tend to wounds of developmental and ancestral trauma, sexual and domestic violence, and grief and bereavement. Others seek me for support in cultivating an integrated awareness of themselves, their relationships, and their part in our world or to prep for and process psychedelic & spiritual experiences.

The symptoms and other problems that bring us to therapy are some of the worst happenings of life, ones we'd naturally prefer to get rid of. With a therapist's help, however, our symptoms can also become an opening to a new way of living, even an opportunity for a new beginning. Our symptoms ask us to seek help with the hope that we may learn to better help ourselves.
