Your journey. Your therapy. One of a kind.
Do you repeat self-defeating behaviors but don't know how to stop?
Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, or relationship conflict?
Unresolved trauma, addiction, eating and body image?
Sex and intimacy, death and grief, or spiritual crisis?
Maybe you just feel overwhelmed and can't even name what is wrong.
I can help you make sense of the senseless,
make peace with shame and blame,
and gain the happiness you thought impossible.
I provide compassionate, inclusive care for adults, teens (13+), and couples.
I am LGBTQ+ and multicultural sensitive.
My approach is holistic and client-centered. Part science, part art,
my therapeutic process fuses trauma-informed research with intuitive care.
I use both "mind to body" interventions like cognitive behavioral therapy
and "body to mind" practices like meditation and mindfulness.
I believe we all have the innate wisdom for healing. My job is to help you unlock yours.
Remember, it is OK to not be OK.
You are imperfectly perfect just as you are.
Finding the courage to accept this is a first step to feeling
the joy you thought was for others.
Together, we can safely process your confusion and pain,
anger and fear, hopelessness and helplessness.
On the other side are laughter and beauty, love and fulfillment.
A NOTE ABOUT FEES
While I do not take insurance, I will provide you with a superbill which you may be able to submit to your insurer as an expense toward your deductible. This policy varies by insurer, so please check with them directly.
Additionally, counseling qualifies as an expense you may pay for with an HSA/MSA.
The initial appointment is $150 (60 minutes)
and sessions thereafter are $125 (50 minutes).
Currently, all my sliding scale spots are filled.
