About My Clients

Do you often feel shame or doubt yourself due to past experiences? You are not alone in your experience of living through a traumatic event, although it can feel isolating, confusing, or angering. You may be living with nightmares, a sense of feeling disconnected, intrusive thoughts, or self-blame, but healing is more than possible. My hope is to explore with you how your body holds trauma and to discover how you can best cope with these experiences.

My Background and Approach

While coming from a trauma informed perspective, I’m passionate about working with clients to find new language to express and define your story. I practice meeting people where they are at to create a safe space where you can realize coping skills that fit your story and experience and will be most helpful for you. I specialize in trauma, anxiety and depression, and working with LGBT+ folx. I’m also here to work with you on whatever else may have you seeking therapy: interpersonal skills/communication, aging, guilt, medical or sexual trauma, emotional and physical abuse, navigating low-income systems. Most insurance is accepted, sliding scale options.
