About My Clients

I'm typically the best fit for people who're looking for a therapist who's open, warm, and authentic. You don't need to travel to an office for therapy and can receive holistic therapy from the comfort of your home, office, dorm or hotel room. If you live in Florida or North Carolina, we'll meet for convenient + confidential online sessions via an easy-to-use HIPAA compliant video conferencing system.

My Background and Approach

I believe healing happens when we feel safe enough to show up exactly as we are. All parts of you are welcome here. I’m not here to change you or fix you. I don’t think you are “broken” or that there's anything "wrong" with you. Together we'll create an open, accepting and compassionate environment, with respect for your intuition + body's wisdom underlying all that we do. I’m trauma-sensitive + social justice-informed and view therapy through an intersectional lens (mind, body, environment, culture). During our time together, we’ll likely look at environmental factors (interpersonal, economic, oppression) that create individual/collective stress and trauma. My approach is both collaborative and holistic, centering around values of⁣ embodied presence, empathy, connection, and deep listening. I’m relationship-centered, inspired by polyvagal theory, and incorporate somatic + mindfulness-based approaches into sessions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value equity, consent, and boundaries in the therapeutic relationship and strive to create a compassionate space that is truly safe, non-judgmental, and accepting. As a white person, I'm committed to challenging white supremacy, both internally and externally, and internal anti-racism work will be my life-long practice. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important aspects of therapy. I put this belief into practice by: prioritizing self-care when I'm not in session and limiting client scheduling on a daily/weekly basis so that I'm able to show up fully for your sessions and be completely present with you. I fell in love with meditation and mindfulness 25+ years ago and have been practicing ever since. My offerings are infused with the transformative and healing qualities of mindfulness-based practices, bolstered by recent research, and grounded in many years of practice.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
