About My Clients

Many psychological symptoms such as anxiety, depression, mood disregulation and low self-esteem stem from being victims and perpetrators of traumas big and small. I have focused most of my work over the last 15 years on helping people heal from these wounds in ways that are attuned to clients’ unique strengths and vulnerabilities.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been working in the field for over 15 years. My license has afforded me the opportunity to work with a variety of clients in an array of settings. I have worked with couples, families and individuals in private practice settings, as a therapist at a drug treatment center for youth, as a the lead clinician in an inpatient program for people who identified as female struggling with dual dianosis, and as the Clinical Director of a transitional housing program for women leaving prostitution and escaping sex trafficking. My current private practice is my love and joy. I integrate a wide range of techniques to help people dismantle oppression within themselves and their communities. I think it is important to use approaches that work for the client, so I have developed competency in talk therapies, body-based work, art therapy, movement approaches, mindfulness and play therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There are stigmas in society, making it difficult for some of us reach out for healing. I do my best to provide a safe space for any issues to arise and be worked through, whether someone identifies as a perpetrator, a victim, a survivor, or all of the above. My therapy practice is driven by a belief that if anyone had been through what you had been through, they would be exactly where you are. I also believe in equifinality; the idea that there are multiple paths to the same destination.
