  • I am an associate clinical social worker. As a therapist, I work in collaboration with you to establish an environment of safety where there is space to encourage healing through courageous self-discovery.

    Some of the specialties I work with include trauma and PTSD, sex and interpersonal relationships, attachment, anxiety, body image, and faith transitions. I am a kink friendly, polyamory friendly, sex positive therapist. I am committed to providing responsible and affirmative therapy to people across the full range of sexual and gender expression. Cultural competence, social justice, and integrity are foundational values of my practice and approach to therapy. I hold myself accountable to these values in my professional and personal life.

    As a therapist, I collaborate with you to tailor your therapeutic process around your needs. I aim to foster a strong therapeutic relationship with you grounded in safety and trust where your truest self can be present and accepted. Some approaches in my orientation include narrative therapy, person-centered, holistic, mindfulness, and attachment-based approaches among others as appropriate and supportive to your process to create space for a deep and brave practice of healing. I aim to honor you as the expert in yourself and your experiences throughout your healing journey.

    I am passionate about supporting my clients in self discovery and healing with curiosity, courage, and compassion. I aim to support you in stepping into your self trust and power in a way that feels true to you so that you can walk through life experiencing more acceptance, connection, and fulfillment.
