About Me

website photo

I’m a psychotherapist who has experience working with trauma and recovery from abuse, grief, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. I believe we all have the innate wisdom to heal, and that healing happens once we learn to extend love and compassion toward all parts of ourselves, including those parts we consider unwanted or unacceptable. Sometimes we need help understanding what gets in the way of our wellbeing, and tools to work through painful, confusing and overwhelming experiences. We all need to be seen, heard and accepted.

I often use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), an evidence-based method that can resolve painful memories and feelings. I also draw from mindfulness practices and humanistic therapy, and work with clients to develop somatic (body) awareness.

Healing is a unique process for every person. I’m committed to providing informed and compassionate care tailored to your specific needs.

Before being in private practice, I worked in both inpatient and community mental health settings, family reconciliation services, and volunteered for a crisis line. My own healing journey brought me to yoga, shamanic work, vipassana meditation, plant medicines, and other spiritual disciplines.

During my free time, I enjoy writing, painting, aerial dancing, learning to garden and spending time in nature.
