About My Clients

Do you feel like an old iPhone that hardly holds a charge with 100 notifications left unread? Sick of saying "yes" when you really want to yell "no?" Despite being passionate, hardworking, and kindhearted, life is overwhelming. Maybe you fear if others REALLY knew the real you, they would leave in an instant. You want to feel calm, confident, & true to yourself. To say no and actually mean it. If you want to stress less & live vibrantly without fear or guilt, I’d love to be your guide.

My Background and Approach

My approach is integrative, holistic, and research-based to provide you with the best treatment science has to offer for deep healing and transformation. We can get a little "woo" too if you desire. I liberally use humor, creativity, and warmth to create a supportive space for you to learn new skills, re-discover your strengths, and foster resilience to overcome life’s struggles with confidence. I don't do cookie-cutter therapy or throw worksheets at you. Instead, I listen deeply to craft an efficient plan with you for your specific goals. I want you to walk away from therapy with at least 5 skills that you can use on a daily basis to be a better you. I will follow-up on your progress on goals, intentions, or homework you set in session for accountability. I will also ask for your feedback on a routine basis to make sure you are getting exactly what you want out of therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I’m proudly a human first, clinical psychologist second. I’m a connoisseur of many paradoxical things, from downtempo electronica to heavy metal. Despite my peaceful presence, I’m a rebel at heart and love kickboxing or raving my frustrations away. I love my tea dark, just like my humor. Oh, and I’m a recovering perfectionist with attention abundance (aka ADHD). Through my own EMDR and hypnotherapy, I learned how to calm my inner critic, befriend my body, and balance the blessings and inevitable curses of attention abundance with entrepreneurship. Although your journey to owning and knowing your power may be very different than mine, I’d be honored to be your guide. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, kink-aware, poly and ethical non-monogamy affirming, sex-worker allied, and take an anti-racist and health at every size (HAES) stance in our work together. ___________Want free resources and meditations?___________ Visit:
