From all appearances, you've got it so good. Lying in wait, just under the surface, are the life traumas that wounded you deeply but were never addressed. And those secrets have you turning to substances more and more. One weekly drink becomes a daily bottle, and you're making excuses to your boss, your friends, your family. Do you want to quit but you don't know how? I can help you find your way out of this despair and into the life you want. You can do this. Let's talk.

Many people can feel they have become “stuck” at a certain point in their life, such as a challenging life adjustment, communication difficulties in a relationship, or getting caught up in negative thoughts and behaviors. My goal in therapy is to establish a safe and supportive environment to freely express your inner thoughts and concerns, while providing resources and a platform for you to advocate for yourself. We will work together as a team to establish goals and to help you overcome life’s demands, difficulties and barriers.

Trauma leaves us feeling broken, ashamed, and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with feeling triggered in everyday situations, isolated from friends who can’t understand, or guilt over what happened to you. It may even feel like this will last forever. Either way, you’re ready for some relief and actual change. You’re ready to enjoy deep relationships without your past getting in the way. You’re ready to rediscover your true self. Most of all, you’re ready to love yourself again & to face your future with a sense of hope.

My practice is focused on helping individuals understand and heal from the profound wounds caused by emotional or physical violence/neglect in close personal relationships. This includes adults who've experienced childhood abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, as well as sexual assault, violence, and betrayal trauma. By conceptualizing complex forms of trauma from a feminist perspective, I investigate issues of gender, power, and culture, and identify them as the center of oppression, distress, and dysfunction in a person's life. Relational trauma often creates isolation, and I believe it is only in relationship that we heal.

The desire to feel understood and recognized is within everyone. When we begin to suppress ourselves due to external expectations, the disconnection with ourselves manifests itself into symptoms of depression, anxiety and relational dysfunction. Existential therapy informs us that we have the capability to make intentional choices that lead to the reclamation our truest selves - the unique feelings and thoughts that we hold.

Being human is challenging. Am I enough? Too much? Feelings of anxiety and inadequacy can interfere with one’s ability to connect with the self and others. Personal growth requires integration of the mind, body, and soul. Understanding past wounds, exploring difficult emotions and identifying behavioral patterns are steps to creating more fulfilling relationships and providing relief from pain and hurt in one’s life. With empathy, acceptance, and openness, I aim to be a guide along your path toward self-discovery, authenticity, and belonging. *I am an LGBTQIA+ Kink/Poly Ally, I believe in social justice and racial equity.
