I am a somatic healer with a sense of humor and knack for storytelling. Understanding the arc of your story – where you’ve been, who you are, and where you are going – that’s what I enjoy most about being a therapist. Healing and finding your version of wellbeing is both an adventure and a mystery – through conversation we may discover things we never imagined.
Your teen is in crisis or your family is at a stuck point. It can be overwhelming to get help but you know it’s time to see a therapist. You may be looking for an expert opinion, reassurance, clarity, or all of the above. You want find a therapist who can easily put you or your child at ease. What if therapy is a chance to hear yourself laugh again or reconnect with your relationships? I look at all parts of your life – your strengths and support, where you come from, and where you want to go.
Building on my experiences in community mental health, I support individuals and families finding themselves in need of a conversationalist, a sounding board, and a guide to get them through life’s ups and downs, with special interest in adolescence, family life, aging, and birth & postpartum. The framework I view therapy through is based in neurology & brain development, attachment theory, and depth psychology. I combine practical tools with inner leadership to empower people on their life’s journey. With over five years experience in youth-specific mental health care, I am intimately knowledgeable about a wide spectrum of needs including cutting and suicidal thoughts; gender and sexual identity; trauma and grief/loss. I use evidence based techniques like mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, art interventions, ACT, and DBT. I have hours and hours and hours of listening under my belt, and the practice it takes to truly hear you and reflect back your inner wisdom.
