My Approach to Helping

Do you feel like you're living your life in patterns and cycles that you know aren't the best for you, but can't seem to step out of? Are you feeling hollow or like you have to empty yourself out in order to make room for other people? Do you feel like you're made up of a bunch of different feelings and parts that conflict with one another? Do you want to understand yourself better and feel more authentically connected?

I work with curious young and middle age adults on understanding their emotions, difficulty with boundaries and control, anxiety & grief over life transitions (including new parenthood), trauma, and relationships with money. By blending playfulness with vulnerability, I use creativity to help you resolve emotional 'unfinished business' and to help you feel more whole.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I think it's an honor that I get to sit with people as they walk through sometimes the most painful, but also the most enlightening times in their lives. In therapy, you invest in yourself and you invest in the work, but I also get to invest in you. The best parts of the work are those tender moments of authentic intimacy where we stop being just therapist and client and we become two connected human beings. It sounds cliche, but it's true. Therapy is transactional in nature, which is needed to provide space that is uniquely yours to fill, but it is not as unidirectional as one might think. You don't get to see it as closely, but you have just as much a profound impact on therapists as you might feel they have on you. You help us grow, you help challenge us too. I find this immensely beautiful.
