Licensed Professional Counselor
I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding.

Practicing Since: 2015
I specialize in relationships that fall outside of the conventional models, and love helping individuals in those relationships explore and communicate their needs, learn to navigate challenges in a healthy way and build stronger bonds of trust and connection.
We are a cultural turning point for women, a reckoning coming at a time where women still face enormous amounts of misogyny, internalized misogyny, role expectation, discrimination, harassment and social expectations about everything from looks to childbearing to relationships. I love working with women as they process trauma and transitions, explore their identity and come into their own power.
Even relationships that are ready to end have so much to teach us about ourselves—if we're able to open ourselves to learning. I specialize in helping people ready to end relationships process the hurt and say goodbye in order to discover new relationships and ways of being together.
From the second we're born, relationships challenge us at our deepest level. Safety, vulnerability, shame, betrayal, commitment: they hit on our greatest fears and meet our fundamental needs. It's a place where we can grow the most and the fastest. I love working with couples because it's all right there in the room, in the moment, to be explored and unpacked and learned from.
Loss alway takes more from us than the person or relationship we've lost, and grief doesn't happen in any one way or on any one's timeline. But with care and connection, there can be deep meaning and healing in even the most profound pain.
