    Does this sound like you?

    Life is exhausting. You’re working hard to avoid uncomfortable emotions, pushing them farther and farther down. Your stressors seem to be piling higher each day and you might be asking yourself- “How much more of this can I take?” It’s hard to find time to relax, especially when you are taking care of others most of the time.

    Occasionally, when you have a quiet moment, your mind interrupts with thoughts of “Is this the life I wanted for myself?” You often find yourself focusing on problems from the past thinking “Why does this still bother me? I should be over this already!”

    Your relationships lack deep connection and reciprocity. It’s often difficult to navigate conversations or know who you can really trust. Things are just easier if you do them yourself, yet this leaves you with a deep sense of loneliness.

    Change is hard to imagine, but here you are considering taking the first step.

    Therapy can help!

    Going at it alone and avoiding our biggest problems may work for a while, but eventually it catches up with us and can take a huge toll on our quality of life and sense of fulfillment. Therapy can provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment to explore your experiences. Therapy can also provide a fresh perspective and new tools for self-care or problem-solving.

    Facing our problems can be very overwhelming, as such, I would be honored to embark on this journey alongside you. Together we will work to explore your thoughts, feelings, and the signals your body gives you to better understand and appreciate your unique life experiences. As you learn to become in tune with your mind and body, we will work to process situations that may be causing inner (and maybe even outer) turmoil. My hope is to create a trusting, authentic, and open relationship in which we collaboratively learn and problem-solve to cultivate the healing you desire. We will use your values and intuition as our guide. It is important to me that in our work together we acknowledge our shared humanness, and show up authentically, with curiosity, openness, and at times, laughter. You are not in this alone.

    I engage in therapy through a trauma-informed / cultural-relational lens and value working with individuals with diverse identities. Common approaches I use in therapy include Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), mindfulness, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Psychodynamic, & somatic work (body-based interventions). My specialties include a wide variety of trauma (ex. childhood, complex, chronic, religious), PTSD / CPTSD, relationship challenges, attachment issues, boundaries, life transitions, grief, and identity exploration.

    People I work best with

    • People who have experienced something they felt was traumatic
    • People who tend to lean on avoidance as their main coping strategy, but are willing to try something new
    • People who experience a lot of conflict within their relationships
    • People who have difficulty setting or maintaining boundaries
    • People who might describe their childhood as “complicated,” “confusing,” or “traumatic”
    • People who are always taking care of others, but have a hard time finding time for themselves

    When I am not at work…

    I enjoy spending time in nature, playing with my dog, and cozying up with a book + a nice cup of coffee!
