My Approach


Making the decision to start therapy is courageous and an act of self-care. I believe in your inherent worth and your innate ability to move toward health and wholeness. I see my role as a partner in uncovering and uprooting the barriers to that growth. My therapeutic approach is holistic and relationship-oriented. Relationships have the power to affect great change and healing. I strive to provide an environment of openness, curiosity, and safety to allow exploration of anything you bring into therapy. I offer an intuitive, empowering approach with a strong belief in your own strengths and self-knowledge. 


In life, you may feel stuck, isolated, or in the middle of difficult life decisions. Maybe you are going through a transition in yourself or your life circumstance, or have just come to a point where you are ready to explore parts of yourself that have been avoided or neglected. I work with a broad range of life and emotional issues. Some areas of specialty include trauma/PTSD, sexuality and gender identity, social justice/living in an oppressive society, infertility, pregnancy loss, and adoption. I also maintain an awareness of existential issues…life’s ultimate concerns. These may include a search for meaning, anxiety about life or death, challenges in balancing connection and isolation, or difficulty making choices. 

I provide counseling and psychotherapy for individual adults. My work is built on a foundation of multicultural counseling and attachment-informed Existential therapy. I am also trained in and offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
