Welcome, I’m glad you are here. Starting therapy can be tough, especially if you are someone who is used to managing things on your own.

My Background and Approach

I have a very open and non judgmental approach. I tend to work with people who are curious and struggling in certain ways, but are so used to focusing on others, they often struggle to identify how they feel. I tend to work relationally, and ask a lot of questions to help identify what it is you are needing, desiring, and feeling. Feeling things can be hard. Sometimes it is easier to help others or avoid conflict, but I want to help you find your voice. Together, we will work on increasing your confidence in stating how you feel, and identifying your needs. I studied at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I trained at the Integral Counseling Center at Pierce St., as well as Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center and Charles Drew Elementary. I’m currently finishing my training in EMDR. I enjoy working with 20, 30, and 40 something’s, and am kink/BDSM/polyamory friendly.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we all should have access to mental health services. I reserve a portion of spots in my practice for sliding scale fees. I believe everybody deserves to be heard and seen. I support many organizations that fight to protect people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ, animal welfare, sex workers, and bodies at every size. I am queer and enjoy working with queer folks in my practice. While I have worked on increasing my own white privilege, I believe this is a lifelong process and continually challenge myself to look at my own assumptions, judgements and biases. I genuinely believe that we are all unique and different and if you believe something different than me, I am committed to respecting and honoring your beliefs. I have been told I have an “anything goes” personality, and I intend on keeping it that way.
