About My Clients

Do you struggle with big feelings of anxiety, fear, sensitivity , or overwhelm that are the result of repeated trauma, chronic stress, or just living through this world? Do you have so much being held in but don't know how to feel it safely? We all have learned tools for surviving difficult experiences and maybe now you're ready to have more. Let's work to transform your relationship to yourself and your emotions, expanding your options for responding to yourself with compassion+ care

My Background and Approach

I am passionate about helping women access the things we should all be given when life gets hard- gentleness, warmth, and support. I utilize interventions like ACT, self compassion, dialectical thinking & parts language, mindfulness , & my education in complex trauma, the nervous system, and anti-oppressive practices to support you in being equipped to feel all the emotions that are coming up and respond with care instead of pushing them away or pretending you are fine. EMDR - I use this model with people who want to learn to process difficult things safely and decrease distress or negative core beliefs caused by trauma, anxiety or hardship. I also utilize the Collaborative Change model, a relational stage approach to addressing complex trauma. Most importantly - we will work to identify what works best for you . Therapy isn't one size fits all, your unique needs matter!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The fact that you're doing this is a big step! Being vulnerable is scary. I believe that true healing includes both internal work + change in environments/systems. I am dedicated to creating a safe non-judgmental space where exploration and safety building can occur . I'll laugh with you and be a human. It is important to me that in therapy, you are able to bring in all the different parts of yourself and identity. I am a lifelong learner in anti-racist anti-oppressive values. If you choose to work with me your wisdom, cultural beliefs, and intersecting identities will be affirmed!  I identify as mixed/multiracial, first gen on one side, am a trauma and cancer survivor , as well as someone who likes to camp, loves connection, a good headphones walk, creating art , and appreciating moments of awe. I enjoy working with other folks who don't fit into singular boxes-I want you to know that when we work together you will be treated as a complex human and can show up as you are

I offer online counseling in the following states:
