  • I work with individuals who have been told they're “too sensitive” or “too much,” or have felt misunderstood or feel alienated from the mainstream. I work with non-traditional families or partners looking for a therapist who "gets it." You are not too intense, too much, too sensitive, too "out there." The whole of you is welcome with me. I do not seek to ‘fix’ clients. Instead, we will work collaboratively to discover and align with your inner wisdom.

    I work with an existential-humanistic, psychodynamic, attachment-based, social justice-informed, trauma-informed lens and integrate behavioral modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I tailor my approach to the individuals' needs and goals. I believe human beings are complex individuals with different stories.

    Together, we will increase awareness, break down unconscious patterns, build a greater understanding of yourself, heal and strengthen relationships, calm anxieties, communicate effectively. My job is to offer you tools and support and listen with a non-judgmental, affirming ear while we build trust.
