We are born with the capacity to thrive and be resilient. Often, we learn to compromise our potential and brilliance in order to survive the impact of our early environments. These early coping strategies, though needed, can become outdated and limit us in adulthood. Therapy can re-awaken the forgotten and marginalized pieces of ourselves so we can have more tools with which to navigate our complex and rapidly changing world.

I offer in-depth, holistic therapy that considers your bodily experience as essential to the healing process. For example, when your hearts start racing, or you feel a knot in your stomach, your body is telling us something important about your experience. As you get a deeper felt sense of your experience, you may find you are able to make more informed, intentional choices, rather than reacting habitually.

I focus on supporting people who have experienced marginalization, including queer, trans, non-binary, bi-cultural and immigrant populations and also those who are looking for an alternative to talk therapy. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, and trauma symptoms from a body inclusive lens, integrating somatic, social justice, and attachment oriented perspectives.

Fees: I strive to make therapy accessible to a wide range of income levels and will work with you to find a sustainable fee. Please inquire about my sliding scale options. If I am unable to accommodate your needs, I will provide you with other resources and referrals.

The best way to find out if we are the right fit is to contact me. I offer a free consultation and would be happy to answer questions and further discuss how I might be able to support you.
