I am a psychotherapist for teens, adults, and intimate partners. My goal is to cultivate a therapeutic relationship with you that provides you a safe and accepting space to explore and grow.
I use a customized blend of client-centered, trans-personal, cognitive, and somatic approaches to meet you wherever you are in your healing journey. These include Gestalt, CBT+, and DBT interventions.
My work is sex-positive, LGBQIA and polyamory-affirming.
Do you feel stuck, like life is overwhelming, or that authentically loving yourself is a pipe dream? I’m ready to support you and be a trusted companion in your healing journey. I offer a safe, non-judgmental, empowering, and compassionate space to explore hurtful past experiences, relationships, emotions, grief and loss, and negative or self-limiting patterns of thought or behavior.
Together, we will work to connect you to your innate wisdom and strengths by developing more self-compassion and understanding of self.
In intimate relationships, we tend to replicate what we have experienced in other important relationships in our lives. I work with intimate partners to recognize these patterns, as well as expand the skills, knowledge, communication, understanding, and capacity for choice that we have in our relationships. I will support you to foster connection within conflict and repair. Our intimate relationships can be the most healing with the right tools!
I am passionate about walking alongside you through the exploration of trauma and how it impacts your life. Trauma work can help integrate hurt or lost parts of self to relieve anxiety, depression, anger, health concerns, and PTSD.
We will explore how your experiences have shaped you, bring compassionate understanding to them, and empower you to make choices that help you feel like you are moving towards a meaningful and enjoyable life.
I love working with teens because adolescence is such an incredible, confusing time of breaking out of childhood and breaking into your own adult person. It is so easy as a teenager to believe negative things about yourself or feel like you're "not normal," so I love being able to normalize my clients' experiences and help them cultivate their own sense of self-compassion. Self-compassion serves as the base for all the other tools we'll learn together.
