Description of Practice
I have always believed that, as Aldous Huxley said, “experience isn’t what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.” While we are powerless to control many conditions and events that befall us, we have a capacity for resiliency that therapy can amplify by providing the right tools and support. My job as your therapist is to help you find the right resources, both in your community and within yourself, to help you experience the challenges of life in a way that ultimately empowers you and builds your innate resilience. You can overcome, grow, understand, change, and thrive. I want to help.

Over the last ten years I have sought additional training in trauma, with particular focus on working with survivors of sexual assault. I am trained in EMDR and working toward full certification. I also have years of experience working with LGBTQ issues, chronic illness, and people living with and affected by HIV. My approach is built on a foundation of feminist perspective because I believe therapy is ineffective if the greater social context a person lives in is not examined critically; most of the time, doing so is empowering for all genders.

I'm trained in many different types of therapy, including humanistic, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, narrative, and solution-focused. I incorporate mindfulness practices, feminist theory, somatic experiencing, and Gestalt, imaginal, and Hakomi techniques into my work as fits the client and topic. If you feel like you'd work well with someone who is warm, direct, and conversational, I'd love to hear from you.
