About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Welcoming and I put people at ease quickly. Non Judgemental. Supportive. Down to earth. Real and authentic. Relatable.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I'm gentle, but truthful. I will challenge you, but always strive to make it in a way that works for YOU. We're all different. Therapy should be as unique as you are. I love to integrate creative activities or interventions into our sessions.

  • Together, we will:

    Examine your challenges and find creative solutions or pathways through them. We'll explore your approach to life and figure out how to move you forward. We'll help you find ways to cope and manage anything life throws at you.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are motivated to make real effective change in their lives, but also those who just have no clue which way to turn. I work a lot with people who have felt like an outsider for much of their lives. Whether that's kink, lgbt, geeks, or just insecurity.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Most therapists have personal stories that nudged them toward the field. I'm not an exception to this. Occasionally, my stories are used in session.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    It's not stuffy. My room is covered in nerdy stuff. We've also got at least one therapy dog on the premises most of the time.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I've been in private practice since January 2019, and working in the field in community mental health or group practice since 2016. I'm a mother in a blended family, a dog mom, a confident plus sized woman, and embrace my dork side. Let's meet!
