I have a passion for supporting motivated individuals who recognize the need for change in their lives and are seeking an empathetic and intuitive supporter. Recognizing that change comes from within, my clients empower themselves to examine their relationships and sense of self as a means to notice behaviors, individuals, and situations that no longer serve their well-being.

I am passionate about my work and love what I do. I have seen the effects that therapy can have in peoples’ lives and I am always honored to be a part of that process. In most cases the collaborative meaning-making process undertaken by client and therapist is the change factor that leads to clarity, relief, freedom and flourishing. Existential therapy provides individuals with new perspectives, lasting change and provide insight for the anxieties of life like freedom, death, responsibility, and meaninglessness.

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.

**NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS AT THIS TIME** The journey of self-discovery and healing is one of the most courageous and rewarding I have found. What I have discovered in my own personal process of growth, awareness and healing and in my work as a therapist with others is that we all have a deep longing for connection, understanding, acceptance, love, and belonging. Gestalt Therapy allows space for the emergence of what is keeping the individual stuck in patterns, behaviors, thought processes, and beliefs that are preventing you from obtaining connection in relationship and building trust with others.
