My Background and Approach

Trauma tends to follow us around like those rain clouds in the cartoons. It seems to permeate other areas of our lives and take over. I get how overwhelming this can be. And, I believe that each of us has a fierce master maven inside that can help us overcome trauma. My work is all about connecting with that inner badass to rise up, overcome the past and create the life you wish to lead. My specialty is in working with survivors of childhood abuse, domestic, and sexual violence. What I love about working with survivors is fiercely holding hope while delicately encouraging the sparks of change at a time that can be so dark. My goal is to create a space for you to explore and unearth your own solutions for overcoming this. Let's put trauma in its place so you can move forward in your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Coming to this work as someone who has experienced poverty, gender-based violence (and a more empowered reclamation of my gender), a multicultural identity, fluid sexuality and ambiguous spiritual leanings -- my eyes are wide open to systemic and cultural oppression. I am also very mindful that we all have our own unique feelings, beliefs and relationships to our identities. I don't take any of this for granted and seek to continually expand my own awareness of intersections between oppression and identity. My work is also not confined to the therapy office - I am passionate about contributing to a more just society so that all people can be free from oppression. I believe there are many ways to support social justice efforts -- from marches and political action to consciousness-raising art and challenging conversations with loved ones. I am also an avid supporter of sustainability and actions to protect the environment -- to me, this is an extension of social justice work.

  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Christianity
  • Wicca/Paganism
