“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.” Pema Chodron

Hello and welcome. Perhaps you know why you are seeking therapy or maybe you are not sure, but something just does not feel right. No matter why you have landed here, you are welcome and worthy of the support you are looking for. I celebrate and honor diversity across gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexuality, culture, and ableness. I am currently accepting adult clients who are seeking to improve any aspect of their emotional well-being or mental health.

Speaking from personal experience, finding a therapist who you feel safe with is of the utmost importance. When I first started going to therapy, sitting down and facing myself felt incredibly difficult but was made easier through the support of my therapist who was accepting, validating, and emotionally present. It is my hope that I can offer these qualities to you as well.

I take the approach of starting where you are. I am relational, nurturing, and direct. I also use humor when appropriate because life feels stagnant without it. 
My clinical lens is largely informed by my background as a Yoga teacher. I integrate modern research on trauma into my practice which considers that the mind and the body are interwoven, and so I often utilize mindfulness and other holistic techniques. I believe that every person has an inner light and truth that can be tapped into with practice and intention. I believe that you are the expert in your life and my role is to provide you with resources to support that inner wisdom that I believe all people possess. My therapeutic lens is also enforced by my belief that we are all more similar than we are different. I am deeply rewarded by the therapeutic work I have done in the past. Seeing other people on a deep level and being a part of their growth is meaningful and motivating. I especially love working with young adults and have a lot of experience in this area.

I have supported clients through addiction and recovery, trauma, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and personality and mood disorders, relationship insecurity, and communication problems.

I obtained my Masters in Clinical Social Work at the University of Texas. I am passionate about issues of social justice, diversity, and inclusivity. I am LGBTQIA+ and identity-affirming and believe that I can learn something from everyone. I have a lot of experience working with young adults and have mostly worked with issues of addiction and recovery, anxiety, depression, mood and personality disorders, relationship insecurity, and eating disorders. Together, I hope that we can discover and sharpen your own wisdom so that we can find our way together to more peaceful lives.

In my free time, I enjoy yoga, watercolor painting, reading, writing, being outside and active, and lounging around with my cat.
