About My Clients

I work with adults of all backgrounds and experiences, but pay particular focus to those who are navigating trauma, anxiety, racial and cultural identity, sexual violence, and gender-based experiences and violence.

My Background and Approach

Mental health is just as much a relational experience as it is an individual one, which is why I believe in creating a therapeutic space that is authentic and open, where you can be your honest self. I believe you are the expert of your experience, and I will work with you as a partner in the process of working through issues, and offering insight from a therapeutic perspective. There is no one-size-fits all to therapy, so I take a holistic and individualized approach to help you reach your goals, grow, and heal, pulling from a variety of approaches and techniques. This includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), somatics, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and systems theory.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that you already have skills and strengths that have helped you make it this far, and together we can collaborate to develop new ones, while adjusting those that no longer serve you. I believe the key to healing present problems is understanding how they came to be, so that we can dig down to the root and heal the most core parts of self. In addition, as a biracial (Black and white) cis woman, I know the depth with which our intersecting identities shapes our experiences, our processing of those experiences, and how the world responds back to us. I am an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, and LGBTQ+ affirming therapist who welcomes discussions on identity and injustice/inequality.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
