Therapy Style

Entering into a therapeutic relationship can be an incredibly vulnerable and courageous experience. I have deep admiration for the work my clients do and I am grateful for the ability to serve as a guide in the process.

I am a social-justice-minded, trauma-informed therapist passionate about working alongside persons of diverse cultural identities, particularly within the LGBTQIA+ and gender-expansive communities. I also have extensive experience working with individuals affected by trauma or PTSD, anxiety, depression, and issues related to adjustment or identity.

My style is warm and collaborative. I aim to provide empathy, compassion, and non-judgmental space for building a strong therapeutic relationship that serves as the foundation for growth, healing, and achieving one’s therapeutic goals. I work from a trauma-informed and culturally-attuned lens. I am specially trained in and utilize EMDR in conjunction with mindfulness-based strategies, somatic therapy, as well as other evidence-based tools to support change and healing of past wounds that may be impacting overall health and wellbeing.

What are your interests outside of work?

I am a new mom and delight in playing with my rapidly growing/changing child! I also love being in nature, spending time with loved ones, reading, and exercising.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your mental and emotional well-being?

Breathe. And I try to maintain a daily gratitude practice.

How do you recharge?

I always feel refreshed after a long hike, followed by a quality night of sleep.

Do you have any pets?

We have a cat (Emerson) and a dog (Boone). Both have become my therapy animals since the pandemic and will often lay at my feet during sessions!
