My practice helps individual teens, adults, older adults, closely study their lives so they can make effective and meaningful change. I draw on the extensive transpersonal approach to counseling and art therapy training I received in my studies at Naropa University. I hold the view that my clients' problems and pain, no matter how distressing and debilitating, stand to be their greatest teachers. As such, I choose to see the potential and not pathology in the people I serve. I respectfully meet my clients at their door so that we may embark on this journey of unfolding together.

Sometimes as humans we encounter overwhelming and confusing emotions, feeling like we are out of control and difficult experiences that cause us to feel stuck, confused and disoriented. I view therapy as the process of building a relationship as we explore together both what is difficult and places where you feel successful. In the process of therapy we will discuss and attend to your family of origin and the ways that your formative relationships are impacting you currently. I will also encourage curiosity around unwanted emotions.

Life is a difficult and confusing journey for all of us. Occasionally we get "stuck" along the path. Sometimes that growth is blocked because of issues, patterns and behaviors from the past which affect the way we feel, do or react in the present. If you are experiencing issues such as depression, anxiety, stress and relationship concerns. I can offer you: a combination of heart, skill, and understanding to help you find your own solutions to these problems that face you. Through the use of solution-oriented, emotionally focused, and reality based techniques, can help you and your relationships overcome obstacles and achieve your goals.

I believe therapy can hold the key to processing the suffering that life brings. Often when there is trauma, change or transitions in life it can cause feelings of helplessness, confusion and despair. I believe processing these events and how they are connected to your thoughts, feelings and actions can bring about self-insight and healing. My approach is client centered and strength based utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and cognitive processing therapy. My goal is to walk alongside you and facilitate a safe place for you to engage with the work of untethering yourself to the things that no longer serve you.

Hi there! I am a queer-identified therapist specialized in LGBTQIA+ mental health. My approach to therapy involves developing a safe and collaborative relationship in which a client can explore various aspects of their life while feeling supported as well as challenged to grow. My theoretical approach is rooted in existentialism, where I work with clients to find and create meaning. I often draw from other therapeutic modalities based on the needs of each individual client.

I provide therapeutic care and support for children and young adults facing changes or challenges. In my work with this age-group over the past 7 years, I have found that an incredible amount of development, exploration, and identify formation occurs during these stages of life. It can be difficult at times to separate out who we really are, from the problems and situations we may face. Through my strengths-based approach, I aim to provide a safe and encouraging space for each of my clients to work through their unique experiences, identify their individual strengths, find healing, explore their goals, and recognize their potential.

At times in life we all get stuck and come to places where change is necessary. I aim to create with my clients a space where we listen to what your thoughts, feelings and symptoms are telling you about your story. I believe that we are built for relationship, that both our greatest wounds and deepest healing occur within relationship. Together we will explore the patterns that emerge in therapy, and how old ways of relating are being recreated in present day. I believe therapy in a mutual work and that the answers to your healing are within you and the relationship we build.

Feeling like you are caught in a cycle that ends in frustration and pain? It is EXHAUSTING. Cycles within ourselves, with our partners, our kids, work, and friends. Life starts to feel really vicious. Whether I am working with you as an individual, couple, or family, I want to help loosen the grip of the loneliness that inevitably happens. I work from a place of relentless empathy. My style is authentic, direct, and compassionate. Much of my work and passion is influenced by my belief in a good God; however, how much (if at all) we discuss faith and spirituality is totally directed by you.

I enjoy working with folks who can feel overwhelmed in life and need help maintaining focus and help finding their way to rest on a harsh planet. My focus is working with anxiety and traumas and helping clients navigate transitions in many areas in many forms and sizes. I use an approach that looks at how we exist in the world and examines suffering from a personal perspective, but also from a social justice, feminist and transformative justice perspective. I believe this is your time, space and story to tell.

If you are browsing through this website then you're most likely trying to find help with something in your life that you've been struggling with for for years. Maybe it's depression or anxiety and you need help trying to manage it, someone to hold it with you. Perhaps you have a hard time staying in a relationship for any length of time? Or maybe you're holding onto the secret of sexual abuse as a child or teen and have never told anyone. Sometimes things shatter and we don't know why, but it does. Life shatters us. I would love the privilege of walking with you. We can do it together. You don't have to do it alone anymore.

“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you need to do it alone.” - Lisa Olivera. Change isn’t easy—I don’t need to tell you that. You’ve been trying to do this on your own for a while now. You may feel stuck, wondering how you can get out of your self-defeating patterns, move forward from trauma or grief, or gain more self-confidence to reach your goals. If you face systemic oppression due to being BIPOC, LGBTQ, an immigrant, or disabled, you have probably faced even more obstacles to your healing, including in the therapy room. I’m here to help with culturally informed, compassionate care.
