My Approach

As a systemic therapist I approach the work of therapy as that of exploring how the unique constellation of relationships throughout your life has shaped how you think about yourself, how you relate to others, and how you view your struggles. In addition to family and social relationships, together we will discuss how race, class, gender, and other identities have impacted your sense of self. With my knowledge of the impact of trauma on the brain and nervous system I can help you better understand what happens in your body when you experience stress and how you can use your body find a sense of safety. When effective, therapy is hard and emotional work. I will bring fierce compassion and plenty of humor to support you through the often difficult journey of self and relationship exploration.

My Background

I earned a master’s degree in marriage, couple, and family therapy from Lewis & Clark College focused on social justice and international family therapy. There I began the work of actively recognizing and dismantling white supremacy in myself and bringing anti-racism into my therapeutic work. I sit on the board of COPACT where I focus my efforts on increasing access for POC to therapy education and jobs as well as how best to include mental health professionals in conversations around radically changing the way we keep communities safe. In private practice I specialize in working with LGBTQIA folks as well as those practicing non-monogamy and kink. I also partner with the Cupcake Girls to offer affirming counseling to adults engaging in sex-work.

My personal life has been a crucible of struggles and transformation. I am proud of the hard earned stability I enjoy and I am excited to bear witness to your journey. I look forward to meeting you.
