I work eclectically and flexibly with adults of all backgrounds seeking therapy because of anxiety, depression, trauma, and other issues that block our ability to feel peace and joy in our lives.  Perhaps you find yourself sinking deeper into depression, lacking the enthusiasm you once had for life.  Maybe you find yourself overwhelmed with anxiety.  Perhaps you're feeling it's time to dig deeper and heal old wounds.  Or maybe you have experienced a severe trauma, and life has never been the same since.  I am here to hold space for and to work with you on all levels: mind, heart, body, and spirit.

Are your own high standards wearing you down? Tired of constantly striving, but unable to relax? Too much self-control, or overcontrol, makes it hard to enjoy life and connect meaningfully with others. It’s exhausting to feel like you’re always ‘on’, performing, or wearing a mask. Overcontrol can lead to problems like anxiety, depression, disordered eating, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and intimacy avoidance. You don’t have to struggle alone–I’ve been a therapist working with LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and other overcontrolled folks for over 10 years. Together, we can help you become more flexible, spontaneous, and authentic.

My motivation working with clients is to assist them to live their best life. Whether you are dealing with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, I want to work with you to lessen the amount of energy you are using to cope. They take so much of our energy that they leave us with little to put toward living our best life. It becomes a vicious cycle that seems we can't break, untreated they can take over our lives. Working together we can lessen their effect on our daily lives and have energy to focus on the good in our life.

Life is hard, but it doesn't have to be burdensome. Together, we can work through what is holding you back and help you begin to experience the life you deserve and have envisioned for yourself. As a counselor, I have learned that the counseling process is one that should be tailored to each individual's needs, not "one size fits all".

Many of us struggle daily with issues like anxiety, stress, depression, anger or just feeling misunderstood. We may feel stuck and ashamed at our inability to just will ourselves into being "better". This internal suffering is so common, but the good news is we all possess an internal capacity for change. It hurts to feel "stuck", but making changes can also be hard to do on our own. I have years of experience working with folks with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addiction, stress and other personal challenges. I am specially trained and committed to supporting clients in the LGBTQ community and immigrant populations.
