I’m so excited you're here! I know that even getting this far can sometimes be a challenge, so I hope you are patting yourself on the back. If not, consider yourself virtually thumbs-upped (that’s a verb now).
If you are anything like the rest of us, seeking help, opening up, and being vulnerable is hard work. You have already taken the first step. Many of my clients are hesitant to see a therapist and are a little put off by their perception of therapy as a super professional environment. So let’s get this straight- I am just me, another human, with some acquired tools to use while accompanying you on your journey toward wellness and/or healing. When you come to see me, you will be encouraged to kick off your shoes, get comfortable, and share at your own pace. Vulnerability is key to working through personal and relational difficulties, but it doesn’t have to happen all at once.
"I see your pain, and it's big. I also see your courage, and it's bigger. You can do hard things."
- Glennon Doyle
In my practice, I see both individuals and couples. I specialize and have extensive training in the treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, gender identity issues, couples counseling, and LGBTQIA concerns. I use traditional talk therapy modalities, but I also like to incorporate experiential components into my practice. What this means for you is that we will try different things in the office and you will also be able to ask me if you would like to consider a “walk and talk” session or integrating creative elements into sessions. I am here for you, so I consider your input vital to this process!
If you’re interested in becoming happier and more empowered you, I’d love partner with you in that process.

Places to Get Started
I believe that each of us have the tools within ourselves to achieve optimal mental health and relational functioning, which is why I use a collaborative approach with my clients to develop and work toward their goals. I offer a safe and inclusive space for my clients to explore their identities, relationships, and personal goals. I have experiences working with adults, adolescents, and couples, with a particular focus on perinatal and maternal mental health, early family experiences, LGBTQIA counseling, gender identity, consensual non-monogamies, and women's issues.
