About My Clients

You’re the one who keeps it all together. You’ve worn the title of “overachiever” with pride for most of your life. But, for a long time you’ve known that something just wasn’t right, and lately your body has been shouting this at you. The doctors say you need to manage your stress level. But how in the world are you supposed to do that when everyone needs you so much? You’ve been hoping that if you just ignore that nagging feeling, it will go away.

My Background and Approach

You don’t have to pretend to be okay anymore. As someone who has experienced chronic pain since her teenage years, I know what it is like to try to hope away the hurt. Together, we'll discover and change the patterns that keep you stuck in pain and trauma. You will learn how to unlock your internal healing resources, calm your mind and body, and put the past to rest. If you are in need of specific trauma therapy like EMDR or Prolonged Exposure therapy, we will work with that. If you are exploring your own neurodivergence, such as questioning whether you might be autistic (or maybe you already know), we can do a deep dive into what that means for you and how to help you live in this world that is not exactly set up for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an anti-racist, neurodivergent-affirming, LGBTQIA+ affirming, anti-diet/Health at Every Size (HAES) mental health provider. I am neurodivergent myself, and I have many autistic family members. As a therapist with a degree in clinical social work, I am committed to a strengths-based approach that centers your experience. You are the expert in your own life -- I am here to help you find the way for you to live most in line with your values. Because of my background in clinical social work, I don't just look at what is going on in terms of your psychological health. We also look at how societal structures and roles affect your life and impact you. That is, sometimes it's your mental health, sometimes it's the patriarchy, sometimes it's both (usually it's both).
