My Ideal Client

You've been told you're "too sensitive" or "too emotional." You feel like you can't trust yourself to make decisions, because you always "screw it up" and your mind is constantly going, replaying memories or rehearsing for the future. You find yourself in similar unfulfilling relationship patterns that leave you questioning your worth and loveability. You lose yourself in relationships, putting others' needs before your own. You're questioning if it can ever really be different.

How I Can Help You

I am passionate about helping people become the best versions of themselves, whether that is individually, or within the context of relationships. I provide a safe, supportive, and healing therapeutic space for folks who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, life transitions, feelings of overwhelm, interpersonal struggles, or grief and loss. During our time together, you can develop more self-compassion and self-acceptance. You can grow a deeper more fulfilling relationship with yourself and those around you. You can build healthy habits and thought patterns that support you in your growth. You can learn to listen to your own inner wisdom and begin to let go of guilt, anger, and shame. You can become more grounded and present in everyday life, allowing you to live more authentically and experience more wholeness even in life's challenges.

Techniques I Use


  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

    We are all made up of different parts that contain valuable qualities and we all have an inner Self that knows how to heal, allowing us to become integrated and whole. Together, we can get to know these different parts, hear their stories, and release their burdens all while establishing more trust in the Self allowing you to feel more integrated and whole.

  • Humanistic  External link

    We are all connected through our shared experience of being human. Getting to know ourselves is one of the most empowering and healing things we can do. I fully believe that being seen, heard, and witnessed nonjudgmentally by another human is one of the most healing experiences we can have.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    When we suppress or numb our emotions we don't get to pick and choose the ones we want to feel, they all get suppressed. Emotions are information and they are often trying to tell us important things. Recognizing and sitting with our emotions is a practice that we can get better at; allowing us to move deeper into our understanding of ourselves and others.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety can be a racing heart, sweaty palms, and a general sense of tension in our bodies or it can be intrusive thoughts, worry, and an overall sense of dread. However anxiety shows up, together, we can work at challenging anxious thoughts, improving insight and awareness, and processing experiences to help you identify coping strategies that work best for you.

  • Codependency External link

    When you give so much of ourselves to others, it can feel like you lose parts of yourself in the process You might find it difficult to set boundaries or voice your true inner feelings. Together, you can learn to recognize and honor your inner voice, trust your intuition, and integrate the different parts of yourself enabling you to live life more fully and authentic to who you are.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Relationships are part of the foundation that make-up the human experience. They bring some of the greatest joys and the greatest pains to life. Together we can work on improving your relationship with yourself and those around you through processing past and present experiences, clarifying wants, needs, and desires, and improving communication strategies.

  • Personal Growth External link

    I believe that getting to know ourselves is one of the most empowering things we can do. Understanding our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and why we do the things that we do provides a sense of knowing ourselves that can elicit feelings of contentment, confidence, and fulfillment.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Loss of any kind is difficult to cope with. Grief is a complicated process and can show up in many different ways across a lifetime. It is common to feel an external pressure to move on, and when you can't, it feels like something is wrong with you. Together, we will get to know your grief. I will honor your process, and provide space for you to be with your feelings and experiences.
