My Ideal Client

You feel lost, hopeless, and overwhelmed. You may have just received a diagnosis or started to question if you may have ADHD. Or, You may have complex trauma and feel therapy isn't working. If you have struggled healing trauma in the past, are having problems managing your ADHD symptoms, I have proven techniques and skills that will help you take back control in your life and emotional world. Give yourself the chance to thrive.

My Approach to Helping

Whatever your situation, you deserve relief. Finding the right support for yourself will play a critical role in creating acceptance and healing. I support individuals experiencing complex or generational trauma through Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) which can bring about quick recovery from trauma. We focus on building the safety of our relationship before utilizing ART and then use the ART process to find relief. I also work with individuals and family systems experiencing ADHD through behavioral therapy, social and parenting skills training, mindfulness training, and family systems work. When working with ADHD in children, it is important to work with parents on their skills and how they can offer support to their children with new tools.

My Values as a Therapist

All humans are worthy of love and belonging, no matter our experiences, perceived deficits, or what others may have led us to believe. Many of us are unsure of our own self worth due to the world around us, or the life we have experienced. Through engagement in the therapeutic process we can find our voice, strength, and most true selves allowing us to live happier healthier lives. I believe that above all else, you deserve to live a life of inner peace, health, and happiness by your own definition. I am queer affirming and believe we are all valuable exactly as we are.

Techniques I Use


  • Accelerated Resolution Therapy External link

    ART utilizes similar approaches to trauma healing as EMDR but in a shorter time frame. Clients will be directed to replace negative memory images with more positive images of their choosing - effectively eliminating the negative charge that these memories hold.

  • Family Systems External link

    A form of psychotherapy that helps individuals resolve their problems in the context of their family units, where many issues are likely to begin. This is the first stop in working to understand and contextualize the challenges you are facing.

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) External link

    Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. I utilize DBT informed therapy.

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    CBT is a type of therapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. Together you will focus on changing automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts.

  • Expressive Art Therapy External link

    Therapeutic process designed to build skills for grounding, mindfulness, and distress tolerance. A piece of the therapeutic puzzle to help you cope day to day as we dive deeper into your work. It is used to support healing from trauma and coping with grief and loss.

Issues I Treat


  • Historical Trauma External link

    I utilize Accelerated Resolution Therapy to help bring fast relief to those experiencing difficult symptoms related to complex/developmental trauma. Clients can expect a handful of sessions to build the safety of our therapeutic relationship and then a dive into the process of ART to bring about quick change.

  • ADHD External link

    Receiving an ADHD diagnosis for yourself or your loved one can be both relieving and overwhelming. Finding the right support for your family system and for yourself will play a critical role in creating calm in your world. While ADHD is a chronic lifelong condition, it is treatable, manageable, and conquerable. The best decision you can make for yourself and your loved ones is to seek support to learn the skills and address the fears associated with impaired functioning due to ADHD.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    The finality of the end of a life can leave you looking for answers, hoping for some kind of relief from the hole left in your world. But relationships don’t end with death, they are only transformed. As painful as it can be to hear right now, it is true that you will someday be okay again. In grief counseling you won’t be asked to be “over it” on any timeline other than you own. You will receive gentle support, guidance, and a reminder that you are not alone in this.
