When someone leaves my office feeling more confident, empowered, settled, and happy- that is what gives me life meaning. Therapy is more than just a process, it's an investment in yourself and your future! Investing in your happiness and well-being provides the opportunity for you to be more engaged in life, have a successful career, and be more connected to those you love. Let's work together to get you on that path!
Whether you're looking for someone who can help you relieve symptoms of complex trauma, seeking depression therapy, or have a child who is in need of support, I am here to help. My therapeutic style is one of validation, normalization, and non-judgment. I offer a space for you (or your child) to come and be as you are so we can work together to help you be your best self, living your best life. When we meet you will always find a safe space no matter what you look like, no matter what you have been through, and no matter where you have come from. I utilize interventions rooted in somatic experiencing, mindfulness, relational, family and individual systems, and feminist theory to help guide you towards long-lasting change.

More Info About My Practice
Therapist shopping is the worst and I understand because I've been there, too. It's like: Why can't there be some kind of online quiz that gives you the perfect match?! The truth is, the relationship is the ultimate key to successful therapy and that is why I offer a free 15-minute phone consult to see if you feel like this is a good fit for you. If it's not, that's ok- I'll be happy to try and make some recommendations for a better fit. I truly want you to find someone you click with so you can work on your goals and achieve the results you are looking for.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
That's ok, most people are! If you've never gone to therapy, the anxiety of the unknown is totally normal. Or maybe you have had therapy, but it wasn't a good experience? Sadly, that's all too common as well. I specialize in working with individuals who feel trepidatious about starting therapy or have had negative experiences in the past. The good news is, there's never any kind of long-term commitment so if you do take the plunge, you can stop at any time. Feel free to take a look at my website and reach out when you're ready.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
The stigma of mental health issues is real! Many people feel ashamed or are worried that their job might find out if they go to therapy. What has always baffled me is: If you broke your arm, you would likely head to the emergency room, call work and tell them you're taking time off, and go home and rest. There is nothing different about mental health concerns! If you're feeling down, it's ok to take a day off work and rest. You're not feeling well. Most likely, you would do the same if you had the flu and not feel much guilt about taking a day to sleep and feel better. Again, mental health concerns are the same! Take the time you need - it doesn't mean you are weak or flawed. It means your body is telling you that you need some rest and self-care.
