It is not easy to be a person. Life can bring us times of high stress, loss, uncertainty, sadness, and confusion. When this happens, we can end up feeling despair, frustration, stuck, shut down, anxious, or cut off. But you do not have to go through difficulties alone. You can turn to therapy and receive the support we all need, and deserve, as we move through life. I have experience working with teenagers and adults who have symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, bipolar, ADHD, and OCD.

I have completed Phase I and Phase II training in Brainspotting, which utilizes the position of the eyes to help process more quickly and effectively than talk therapy alone. This can be powerful for anyone and is especially helpful for those who have experienced trauma. I also draw from person-centered therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, internal family systems, body-based therapies, and mindfulness techniques. Depending on your goals, our sessions can involve discovering helpful coping techniques, building awareness of the body, compassionately exploring your many aspects, and using relational attunement and the power of your brain to process emotionally charged material.

One of the most important aspects in this work is having a strong therapeutic alliance. I work towards developing this by bringing empathy, warmth, and humor to our sessions. Through this collaboration, I hope to assist you in getting to a place of peace with your past, so you can better focus on what you most value. My areas of interest are trauma, OCD, anxiety, depression, and spirituality.
