People come to therapy with unique needs, concerns, and life circumstances. Through the process of self-inquiry, I help clients gain insight and develop effective coping skills to move through a challenge with greater ease and understanding. My therapeutic style is warm, compassionate and curious about one’s experience. I use an attachment based, person-centered, trauma informed approach that offers individuals and couples clarity around repetitive patterns that cause pain, conflict, and limit growth. I have in-depth experience involving issues in the lgbtq community, gender identity/expression, suicide, cultural differences, PTSD, anxiety disorders and disabilities, both invisible and visible. In my work, I connect clients with life experiences that bring pleasure and well-being.

I pull from theories and therapies I’ve learned over the years, with over 8 years of training, as a way of individualizing the therapy for each client.

I work with individuals, couples and families.  And accept self-pay at a sliding scale between $100-175.  I do not take insurance at this time, but can provide a superbill.
