As a queer woman, artist, and intersectional feminist, I bring an insightful and dynamic perspective to every session.

Anxiety has a sneaky way of disguising itself. It can often feel difficult to confront – how can we break away from something that feels so powerful and familiar? I see anxiety as myths and faulty narratives that we tell ourselves. By integrating acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), positive psychology, narrative therapy, and elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), we can address anxiety patterns and dynamics that are no longer useful.
I see LGBTQ identity as an ongoing process of discovery, rebirth, and coming home to yourself. Often nonlinear in nature, our identities are continually evolving pieces of ourselves. Using queer theory, attachment theory, narrative therapy, positive psychology, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) I support clients in weaving together safe and supportive self-identities.
We often find ourselves in similar relationship patterns and dynamics. Whether these are relationships with family, friends, or romantic partners, we knowingly (and unknowingly) carry what we learn from past relationships into new ones. . Through the use of attachment theory, internal family systems, dynamic attachment re-patterning experience (DARe), narrative therapy, positive psychology, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) we can identify and transform your role in relationships.
