About My Clients

I work with people who are grieving the loss of their sense of self, and who are craving reconnection to their identity and desires. My clients are people who feel suddenly disconnected from parts of themselves they once had access to, are mourning a relationship they never got to have, or reeling from the death of a loved one.

My Background and Approach

My practice is a warm, gentle, and non-judgmental space where you can explore your relationship to yourself and others. I use an eclectic approach that involves blending elements from a variety of frameworks including, Feminist, Relational, and Emotion Focused perspectives. In our work together, we will center self awareness, joy, and peace, to bolster your natural ability to heal and recover from difficulty.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I recognize the very real ways in which systems of oppression impact our lives, our emotions, and our ability to heal. Our work together will involve unlearning racist, capitalist, heteronormative, and eurocentric ideologies that inhibit the healing process.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
