About My Clients

I work with female-identifying adults, the LGBTQ+ population and ex-evangelical women wanting to deconstruct their faith. The focus of my work in the last three years has been understanding the bidirectional impact of our mental and physical health and how to help my clients maximize their daily functioning.

My Background and Approach

Our work together will involve identifying ways to strengthen your whole self. To do this, we will examine the family culture you grew up in, your current family culture, your friends and support group, your work, your involvement with other practitioners, spiritual practices and any other areas you might want to discuss. I work from a holistic-feminist perspective, focused on creating meaning while helping you to manage emotional distress and relationship issues. We will focus on your whole person, including a wellness approach to mental health. I help you optimize your overall health by addressing any functional limitations from an integrative medicine for mental health perspective. I truly believe the relationship you and I will develop is the most important catalyst for change, so I make sure to foster connection and create safety in the therapy room. I trust that you are an expert on your life - you are the one living it after all.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The focus of my work in the last three years has been understanding the bidirectional impact of our mental and physical health and how to help my clients maximize their daily functioning. I love the work I do and feel honored to be able to walk alongside people as they find healing. When I’m not doing therapy, I’m spending time with my partner and our dog, hiking or out in nature, enjoying a good meal with friends, creating something with my hands or resting to recover from my chronic health conditions.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
