“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves…”
–Rainer Maria Rilke

I believe that every individual has the inherent strength, expertise, and wisdom to live a life that is in sync with their values. My mission is to provide a nurturing and secure environment for clients to face life’s challenges and connect more deeply with their values and with what’s most important to them.

My therapeutic approach is first and foremost collaborative and relationship focused. I see our therapeutic relationship as a partnership, tailored to meet your unique needs, goals, and circumstances. I draw from psychodynamic, relational, emotion-focused, and mindfulness-based approaches, and am particularly passionate about helping individuals uncover patterns, enhance self-compassion, and gain deeper emotional insight.

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I find fulfillment in working with LGBTQ+ individuals. My specialization also includes promoting body liberation and body positivity, guiding individuals through faith transitions and healing from religious trauma, and assisting with identity exploration. I’m also a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC) and enjoy working with folks who are interested in using music as a therapeutic medium to explore their mental health.

I look forward to working with you!
