About My Clients

Are you looking for help with something - anxiety, depression, relationship issues, substance use, or trauma? Whatever you are struggling with, you can bring it to our therapy work together. I have a passion for working with people who were traumatized by religion or spiritual belief and indoctrination. The shame that was planted at a young age by religion can create lifelong struggle to feel whole again. Let's examine how former beliefs continue to keep you entangled and work to free you.

My Background and Approach

I work with a psychodynamic or depth psychology, which means that I approach healing by allowing what has been repressed, ignored, or denied to come forward. I may use image, symbol, humor, dreams, or imagination in our work together to access the deeper You. I also work from an existential perspective, which means that you are not your symptoms, and your whole life is considered in terms of meaning. My feminist approach includes an understanding that we live in a society where there are systems that are out of our control, so we take accountability for only the things we CAN control, and then I help empower you toward your goals. I work in a non-judgmental, person-centered way and together we will create goals and decide how to best achieve them. I have also been trained in EMDR and can offer that as a part of our work together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a secular person who has worked through my own religious recovery through many years of therapy. I also have worked through 12-step recovery programs while maintaining my non-religious stance. I read constantly, always trying to understand more about every kind of experience so I can better serve my clients. I identify with anti-racism, anti-capitalism, body-positive/neutral, kink/poly awareness, and I am a strong ally of LGBTQi+. I absolutely love animals and I currently have senior cats who sometimes show up in sessions on the screen. I am a vegetarian and I am trying to do less harm to the planet throughout my life.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
