About My Clients

My clients have survived and are healing from childhood sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, sexual assault, rape, sexual harassment, domestic violence, and intimate partner violence. Trauma can fracture who you are as a person. It can make you feel unlike yourself, distant from others, changed forever. Perhaps that looks like flashbacks, feeling like you're trapped in the past, hopeless, anxiety, low self-esteem. I can help you cope and heal from the impacts of sexual and relationship trauma.

What I Specialize In

I have worked with adolescents, couples, families, and adults impacted by sexual assault and relationship violence--these issues can effect everyone in a survivor's life. Generally, providing some tools to manage your symptoms is a good start, in addition to sharing some knowledge about the dynamics of trauma on the brain and body. Then, if appropriate, we can go deeper into the ways the trauma has impacted you and figure out together how to put the pieces back together. I also do EMDR with many of my clients. We will build resilience, access your strengths, and free you from your past. Learning to understand your trauma, manage symptoms, change unhealthy relationship patterns, and increase self-esteem can help you cultivate the life and meaningful relationships that you want. For couples and families: we specifically discuss how to support the survivor best, how to communicate needs, and how to heal as a unit from the trauma.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe I have the best job in the world. Connecting with my clients is an experience I will always cherish and have gratitude for. I believe it is never too late to heal, grow, or change. I am extremely passionate about these topics and in my personal life I do my best to work to dismantle the structures that uphold violence and hatred in our communities. I believe in being a therapist AND an activist and that someone cannot be a safe therapist without acknowledging systemic oppression. I assist clients to explore how systems are impacting their health and how to disrupt this impact, rather than adjust to living beneath it.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
