I use a warm, inviting, and nonjudgmental approach to help adults explore, understand, and make changes in difficult circumstances.

Losing someone or something we care about can have profound impacts on us. It can change how we understand the world, our relationship to ourself, and can feel so big we don't even know how to talk about it. My goal is to help you explore the variety of reactions you may be having, think more about past experiences with grief and loss, and develop some tools around coping with this massive change in your life.
Anxiety can present itself in a variety of ways: difficulty sleeping at night, a mean inner critic that leaves you constantly questioning yourself, feeling distant or distracted, difficulty leaving your house, panic, fear, and can impact our ability to have successful relationships and meet goals we have for ourselves. With my support we can get a better understanding of the source of your anxiety and find ways to manage its impact on you.
Depression is a beast. Whether you are realizing it's impact on you for the first time, or have been fighting it for years, you deserve support. I can help you explore the relationship you have to depression, the impact it is having on you, and tease out the trajectory of depression within your life. By working together to better understand the role of depression in your life, we can explore and practice ways to shrink the depression and help you access more joy.
Trauma informed therapy requires that we build a trusting relationship where we can slowly, and thoughtfully, invite the trauma into our therapy space. In my practice I aim to take into account the multifaceted impact of trauma on the whole person, help clients tease out how the trauma is showing up in their lives, and provide support and healing around past and current traumatic experiences.
While exploring current stressors and worries, I will invite you to go deeper and seek to better understand how past experiences are shaping current concerns, explore patterns that keep repeating, and work to better understand your own inner experiences and how they are continuing to shape your experience within the world. By better understanding our roles within our life, many people start to feel less stuck, and more in control.
Change is hard! And why shouldn't it be? As much as we may want to change things, it's also scary and frustrating. Let's talk about it.
