  • Relationships are important, whatever form they come in. We are meant to be connected with others. In relationships we can find love, support, kindness, and safety. Sometimes challenges arise when there are shifts in our relationships, such as a negotiation of new terms, dynamics, or expectations. With some support, conflict can be an opportunity for closeness and healing.

    My experience highlights work with adults, partners, queer folks, and people who view themselves as creative thinkers. The people I work with are resilient, thoughtful and intuitive. I have experience working with issues related to relationships, trauma, anxiety, life transitions, and identity exploration. I offer a combination of talk therapy and practical skills to individuals and partners. I’m humbled by the opportunity to hold space with you.

    My style is authentic, nonjudgmental, and open-hearted. I bring my personality with me – I am down to earth, playful, creative, and honest. I am gentle and direct with my communication. I aim to help partners and individuals connect with their strengths, reflect, and identify what is important to them. When people struggle, some do not feel heard or understood, while others might feel overwhelmed and need space. Working with me can help you recognize patterns and learn to communicate needs, goals, and passions in new ways. I offer a supportive space where you can gain an outside perspective and be seen and heard. All of you is welcome here. I draw from relational and humanistic theories, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.

    Our identities have a major impact on our experience in the world. I value using an intersectional lens and transparency around sharing my own identities, including: queer, cisgender, femme, white, parent, and wife. I welcome exploring how our identities may interact and influence our work.
