About My Clients

The clients who show up in my office are individuals and families who are tired of feeling stuck in their past experiences and current realities. Most have experienced some kind of harm, trauma, marginalization, and/or loss. As your therapist, I will develop a safe and trusting relationship with you where you can gain insight on your story and practice the skills you need to be fully present in your life.

My Background and Approach

The two primary ways I describe my therapy are trauma-informed (addressing how chronic stress & trauma impact our bodies and behaviors) and systemic (understanding how our relationships, community, history, and larger society impact us). I have specialized training in helping people reestablish safety, process, and integrate traumatic experiences. I am interactive in my work with clients of all ages and believe in the power of laughter and joy in therapy. Therapy doesn’t have to be depressing in order to build our capacity for healing! With younger folks, I use a whole family-systems approach rooted in attachment theory often utilizing play and expressive arts. I do require at least one caregiver to be actively involved in the therapy process, meeting with me every 4-6 sessions or joining for family therapy. I am trained in Somatic & Attachment Focused EMDR (SAFE EMDR) and Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) for trauma processing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work with children (8+), youth, and their families, as well as adult individuals. Due to my own lived experience, I am especially equipped to serve people from the LGBTQ+ community, musicians, and people who are immigrants, third-culture-kids, or from multicultural backgrounds. I also specialize in working with survivors of conversion therapy and reparative practices.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
