I have a passion for empowering people to connect with and move toward living their fullest life. This can mean exploring, identifying and wrestling with any obstacles that may be preventing this such as stress, depression, anxiety, relational distress and/or trauma. It can also mean finding and practicing ways to live more authentically. My approach integrates a number of frameworks including EMDR, resiliency, expressive arts therapy and more based on your unique needs. I am committed to working with and supporting people of color, folks in the LGBTQIA community and anyone impacted by oppression. I want you to feel comfortable bringing all parts of who you are to counseling.
