I have a background in the creative arts. Creativity resides within each of us, and profound fulfillment can be achieved as we delve into our natural creative tendencies. This idea inspires the work I do with each individual. As my client you deserve a warm, non-judgmental space to work toward your therapeutic goals. Together we will draw on your innate strengths, talents, and resiliency to help you feel empowered as you navigate life’s challenges. Our work will be influenced by existential, emotion-Focused, and attachment therapies. We will incorporate practical, evidenced based interventions to help you gain mastery over your experience in this world. I encourage patience in the therapeutic process. The challenges that bring most people into therapy did not emerge overnight. I urge each individual to give time to the healing process.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Personal Growth External link

    Personal growth is a never-ending journey. Each person is beautifully unique. You can move toward personal growth by discovering what it means for you to live authentically. We will explore your history, your passions, your spirituality and your creativity to help your uncover who you truly are.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    Finding a LGTBQ friendly and knowledgeable therapist can be difficult. I welcome all consensual expressions of love and sexuality and all gender identities. Through a social justice lens I offer a safe and non-judgmental space to navigate LGBTQ identity development, relationships, family dynamics, and transitions.

  • Body Image Issues External link

    In our society there is constant messaging that we must look a certain way. We are taught to feel inadequate and a general sense of shame if we don't live up to society's beauty standards. I can help you move from that place of shame, to a place of self-love and acceptance of who you are and what you look like today. You have inherent value because you are a person. I will honor that in our work.

  • Anxiety External link

    Living with anxiety can be painful and exhausting. When we learn to live in harmony with our anxiety and approach it from a place of acceptance rather than fighting with it, we can enjoy a more balanced life and even experience the ways in which anxiety can serve our creative and productive instincts. We will soothe the anxiety by gaining self-awareness and embracing our anxious parts.
