I believe we all have the capacity to grow, change and heal. I will work with you to help you cope with depression and anxiety, relationship issues, shame, loss, trauma or addiction. I value the relationship built in therapy and the space it provides to start with what is going well and explore difficulties from there. You can expect to feel heard, valued, encouraged and challenged to work toward your therapeutic goals. I incorporate humor and am direct in my communication. My specialty is in helping people work through their emotions, explore difficulties, address relationship stressors, and create safety for overwhelming pain. I have been working with those who have experienced trauma and life changes, and have a special interest in this work. I also have a deep respect and passion for social justice issues.
