She/her/hers

Psychotherapist

I fiercely believe we all have a story to tell and a right to be listened to.

I am a psychotherapist who helps individuals across the adult lifespan recovering from depression, family of origin issues, relational concerns and trauma. Clients are encouraged to share their experience without judgement or censorship. In session, I am warm, attentive, and a good balance of gentle and a needed push. I do the deep dive into difficult emotions we often choose to, or have to, ignore in order to survive. I have been acknowledged for my authenticity in sessions, and have been told my humor is well placed and appreciated. While therapy is hard work, it is also a place to play. 

My areas of expertise include childhood trauma and neglect, depression, issues with self-esteem and self-worth, and relational concerns. I am an anti-racist, body affirming, sex and sex work positive therapist. 

I have completed an intensive three year post-graduate Gestalt therapy training program and am a Certified Gestalt Therapist. I combine psychodynamic and Gestalt theory to provide a comprehensive healing of both past and present. While we talk about events, we will pay special attention to what is happening in your body in the here and now.

When I am not working, you can find me pole dancing. I have presented research and have been interviewed on pole dancing and trauma and am continuing on the endeavor of tapping into the mind-body connection.
