Shopping around online for a human to trust and talk to can be a strange experience, whether you’ve been in therapy before or not. Beginning this journey can often feel intimidating. My goal is to ensure the safety and welfare of my clients while helping them navigate turbulent times.
I specialize in working with those who have faced past or ongoing traumas, sexual assault or abuse, domestic or gender-based violence, college students, and the LGBTQ+ community. I have also worked with adults who experience depression, bipolar, anxiety, disordered eating, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, stress, relationship issues, academic struggles, immigration difficulties, and grief. When working with BIPOC, I am mindful of my white identity.
I use a trauma-informed, psychodynamic, and collaborative approach. Your therapy journey will be individualized to who you are and your lived experiences. We’ll work as a team to explore, understand, and update the patterns in your life. I utilize humor, creativity, self-reflection, body-based interventions, and psychoeducation to promote growth. I believe knowledge is a transformative tool that can help us update how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world. Together, we’ll look beyond diagnoses, and examine attachment and relationships. We’ll hold space for the familial, cultural, or oppressive systems that may be influencing your life. Therapy is an investment in the longest relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself.
