About Me

You are unique, and therapy should be, too. By recognizing that you may have had experiences that fall outside of mainstream culture's rigid boxes, I offer a non-judgmental and accepting space for you to gain a better understanding of yourself, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and get untangled from patterns that are keeping you stuck.

Education & Experience

Throughout my life, I've been immersed in subcultures that value creativity, compassion, and a sense of respect for differences. I have worked for many years as a trauma therapist in programs that support LGBTQIA individuals and other marginalized communities. I specialize in helping people tap into their strengths while moving barriers out of the way. As a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in Mindfulness-based Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Somatic Therapy, I use integrative methods to move you towards healing and empowerment.
