Dealing with the daily struggles of life doesn't have to be faced alone. Focusing on self-growth and resiliency leads to tangible changes in our lives and fosters a mind-body connection. Whether you want to focus on a specific issue or seek proactive change in your life, seeking help is the first step. I'm here to guide that change while helping us focus on measurable results to improve your life. Please scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your contact information to have a conversation.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
"My mental health has taken a turn for the worst, but I’m the one who helps other people.” Sound like you? If so, depression and anxiety can show up when we are constantly stressed with unhealthy relationships & boundaries. We feel guilty asking for help, so we say we’re “fine”—and almost believe it— but when we hide our issues, we can find ourselves drinking more, experiencing anxiety attacks, and/or contemplating ending it all. What you're experiencing is evidence that it's time for a change.
I work with individuals and their families on issues related to trauma, self-harm, attachment struggles, individual and group relationship dynamics, domestic violence, relational boundaries, and how these factors and mental health symptoms play out in patterns in people’s lives. I’ve also worked with children and adolescents identifying as part of the LGBTQIA community, who inspire incredible strength and resilience.
I work best with LGBTQ clients, chronically ill/disabled clients, ADHDer & autistic clients, clients who want to heal from diet culture, and clients who have survived trauma. Additionally, I have experience with sex workers, kink, polyamory, religious trauma, cancer and terminal illnesses, & relationship counseling with partners of differing neurotypes. I'm also passionate about working with grief and loss, union tradesworkers, and fellow geeks and fandoms.
I'm looking for clients who are ready to get to work on issues, big or small. If you need someone to laugh with you, that's me. I may not cry with you, but I'm going to make sure you have a safe place with me to do that if you need to. Don't deprive yourself from getting the help you need. I know finding a therapist can seem like such a monumental task, but choose to start somewhere. If I'm not the right fit, I'll try to help you so you can find that person you need.
My clients seek clarity with anxiety, depression, relationships, life transitions, self-esteem, PTSD, professional and career issues, college and graduate school issues, stress management, ADD/ADHD, sexual abuse, LGBTQ+, grief, and other concerns. Together we will treat your therapy as a journey that you have the address, and I hold the roadmap.
