Many people turn to therapy wanting to gain deeper insight about the past, while others wish for more concrete ways to move forward. I believe both approaches are valuable, and I tend to integrate both in my practice. I can offer tools for coping with distressing experiences such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress/burnout, or bodily symptoms. I also provide a safe, honest environment in which to explore some of the root causes of these symptoms, including childhood trauma, systemic oppression, or unresolved grief.
I am committed to acknowledging and learning from intersectional differences in a spirit of humility and solidarity. I support social causes which seek to dismantle systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, wealth inequality, and environmental destruction. I am passionate about many things that promote mental health outside of the therapy room, including spending time with plants and animals, singing and dancing, gardening, cooking, reading, etc.
