My Approach to Helping

I am currently accepting new clients and I have immediate openings.

Welcome! I am glad you are here.

By seeking out therapy, you have already started to invest in your mental health and I applaud your courage and openness for potential change and growth. I firmly believe that you are the expert of your own life and experiences, so finding the right therapist for you is an important step in your therapy journey. I hope you’ll bring your hurt, anxiety, and sadness, alongside your creativity, goofiness, and your joy. It is my pleasure to receive all of you. I can commit to being a steady and warm presence, and someone who believes in the human capacity to heal. You can expect me to work hard to understand you and your history, offering an equal mix of nurturing, education and clear-sighted perspective.

As your therapist, I am a compassionate, authentic, and gentle person who listens deeply, and inspires you to engage your healthiest thinking, cultivate self-awareness, and act towards the positive changes you desire. While everyone’s experiences are unique and their own, my aim is to provide a culturally sensitive and inclusive environment for all people.

Therapy with me includes using a combination of therapeutic modalities that best align with your self-determined goals such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). My approach is humanistic, strengths-based, and person-centered. I value holistic, empowerment and trauma-informed care. I am committed to advancing social justice, life-long learning, cultural humility, and critical self-reflection. These values do not start and stop within the confines of my work, but instead are deeply rooted in who I am as a person, neighbor, and community member. In session, and in life, my style is informal, warm, and playful. I bring a body-positive, sex-positive, feminist and anti-oppressive lens to my work. I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming provider.

When I am not at work you can find me in my backyard with my golden retriever, Luka and fiancé, working on my garden and drinking lots of coffee.

** I am seeing clients virtually at this time.
