About My Clients

Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands of your life. It leaves you cut off and disconnected from the people and activities you love, and it can show up in a lot of different ways. Chronic stressors get imprinted in a way that can deeply affect your mental and emotional well being.

My Background and Approach

I have an active imagination and a visual mind that can help you make more sense of yours. Together we can start mapping out your inner world, listen carefully to what lights you up, and begin caring for stress and exhaustion. I can help you explore internal and external stressors, resolve conflicts, and feel more connected to the here and now. I offer a collaborative space for teens and adults seeking individual or couples therapy. I have experience working with people impacted by trauma, autistic and LGBTQIAPK+ people experiencing minority stress, caregivers experiencing compassion fatigue, and advocates engaged in long term anti-racism & systemic change efforts. In addition to my clinical work, I provide organizational development consulting through the Affirmative Couch for clinics to provide more inclusive care for LGBTQIA+, consensually non-monogamous, & kinky clients.
