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.
It's easy to get lost in the projections and expectations of the world around us. It can sometimes feel like we forget who we are, and what we want out of this life. Losing yourself can feel overwhelming, and it can be hard to know where to begin. I can help you rediscover your truth, and guide you towards a clearer understanding of yourself and the world around you.
My office is a space for deep reflection, necessary tantrums, catharsis, nurturing, poetry, and imagination. I work with earnest human beings around human problems: anxiety, shame, heartache, rage, gender, the want to escape the terrible traps of trauma and toxic culture and old survival patterns, the search for authenticity and meaning, the desire for love and pleasure and sex.
I provide individual psychotherapy to teens, adolescents, and adults. I have experience working with clients facing challenges relating to: anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationships, identity, family-of-origin trauma. I offer an affirming and accepting space for all queer, trans, non-binary, and gender-expansive identities within the LGBTQ+ community.
Many individuals, couples, and families believe that their struggles have lingered on for so long, therefore “it will never go away”. Others tend to minimize it in hope that “it will just go away”. Research shows that work toward addressing problems can be the most interesting, rewarding, and empowering. It also promotes taking better control over one's life.
You've done what you thought you were supposed to do, you may have accomplished some major milestones in your life, and yet you are left wondering- isn't it supposed to feel better than this? When your feelings don't match your expectations, you find it hard not to just act "fine" so that others don't think you're ungrateful for what you have. This leaves you feeling ashamed, confused, and alone. I can help you rediscover your own voice, and to finally feel calm, fulfilled, and connected.
