Do emotions take over and exhaust you? Have people marveled at how resilient you are or mentioned your sensitivity as a liability? Maybe you sometimes wonder if you’re the only one who is seeing the hurt and pain all around. 

If any of this speaks to you, I relate and I can help.

Individual Therapy 

I currently have day-time openings for virtual therapy. I intend to offer in person therapy later this Summer. 

I invite you to learn more about my style (see right column) and pricing options (see below). 

If you are interested, you are welcome to reach out to me and we can set up a brief phone call before scheduling. 

My practice is body oriented and trauma informed. I integrate various evidence-based interventions to support clients in establishing a sense of deep connection to self, others and sustaining well-being. I am well suited to work with young adults (ages 19-30) and adolescents (ages 13-18) who are interested in mindfulness and other body-based exercises to be the center of their therapeutic experience. 

 I see clients who are experiencing a range of mental health challenges. I am especially familiar with anxiety, grief, burn-out, persistent depression, relational stressors, survivors of sexual trauma, and those navigating life as an artist. I align with clients whose identities and values defy society's conventional norms. My practice is trauma-informed, and I am dedicated to an anti-oppression, anti-racist, body positive, LGBTQIA+ affirming and equitable lens.

 

I am a process-oriented therapist, which means I emphasize the felt experience of therapy over cognitive skill building.  I integrate various body-oriented practices, talk therapy, and expressive arts therapy. See below for more information about the modalities I draw from. The integration of these practices ensure that the client's therapeutic experience is present in mind, body, and spirit.
