Many of us feel disconnected, carry burdens from past traumas, and struggle to balance caring for ourselves with having a fulfilling life. My approach will help you respond to intense emotions and memories with more curiosity and speak to the parts of you that feel self-critical, alienated, and alone in a more compassionate and nurturing voice. We will explore your unmet needs and help you express yourself with more vulnerability, confidence, and authenticity.
In order to serve clients with a broad range of diagnoses, I provide therapeutic interventions tailored to each individual case. Whether you are a couple looking to improve your relationship, or an individual hoping to gain insight and coping skills, your goals can be addressed.
My clients have often struggled to work well with therapists who don't understand who they are, who they love, and how they live their lives. I work with queer, trans, gender non-conforming, kinky, ethically non-monogamous individuals who want to get to work in therapy, not spend sessions educating their therapist about their identities or being questioned about their choices.
Greetings! I have 5 yrs of experience working with diverse, adult populations facing mental health challenges. I've been on both sides of "the therapy couch", as a survivor/thriver with Bipolar I Disorder & as a LMHC. I completed my internship assisting survivors of Domestic Violence & have a great deal of knowledge about Healthy Relationships vs Unhealthy ones. I am a committed, reliable & hard worker. It is a privilege to be able to help others navigate the curveballs life will throw!
Sometimes life is really hard and we need a space to express our thoughts, feelings and experiences that continue to hurt today. Possibly you have experienced a trauma or stressful event that still impacts you. You may be depressed, anxious or are having problems in your relationships or at work. Perhaps you are struggling with managing your stress and know that something needs to change but you aren’t sure what steps to take. Therapy is a safe place to learn new strategies to heal.
My clients have struggled with OCD, hair pulling, or skin picking and are looking to speak to someone with specialized experience treating these difficulties. I am developing a speciality for those struggling with anxiety related to the climate crisis.
I work with people looking for balance in their life, home, relationships, career & inner self. They're juggling so many things at once. It can lead to stress, anxiety or depression. Anxiety is the most common health complaint. I also specialize in people who've experienced trauma. Many of us are struggling with finding our sense of peace and harmony. You'll learn mind & body techniques that aid in the release of pent-up tension that weighs on your emotional & physical well-being.
