Being a human being can be really hard.

Sometimes we feel broken, scared, alone, or unworthy of love or happiness. When we find ourselves in those spaces, it can feel tempting to pull away--from others and from life itself.

But there is another way.

Unpleasant parts of ourselves and our lives can become teachers if we meet them with curiosity and compassion. Together we will explore feelings, thoughts, and behaviors without judgement as we try to understand and appreciate what purpose they are trying to serve. I will provide a safe space to encourage you to free yourself from patterns that are keeping you from living the life you want to life.

This process will be collaborative, connected, and rooted in mindfulness and compassion. I will often invite in the wisdom of the body and the present moment.

We will work together to discover your wise and loving true self.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in working with people who identify as helpers, healers, people-pleasers or perfectionists. I support them in setting healthy boundaries and developing more authentic, embodied, empowered, and loving relationships with themselves and others.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I believe that therapy is sacred work. It is an honor to witness people discovering their authentic selves, healing past hurts, and stepping more fully and bravely into their lives. I am humbled and inspired by people's strength, courage, willingness to be vulnerable, and ability to grow. I love that therapy is creative and can be fun even as we traverse painful territory.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Every time I hear someone say that they were reluctant to seek counseling because of a negative experience my heart sinks. This bothers me personally because I believe deeply in my profession. I have witnessed tremendous growth in my offices and have experienced profound healing sitting in the client chair as well. But what really gets me is that because of one unfortunate experience, this person did not see therapy as a possible solution. This person needed support, but did not feel safe reaching out to someone who might really be able to help.

If you can relate to this at all, let me say three things:
1) I am sorry that when you were already feeling vulnerable and got the courage to reach out to someone for help, that you experienced more pain.
2) It does not have to be that way. My therapist friends are some of the most amazing people I know. They are ethical and compassionate and kind and have excellent boundaries and really care about their clients.
3) Use what happened to help you understand and communicate your needs. There are many things to consider when looking for a therapist, but most importantly you need to feel safe and comfortable.
