My clients are my heroes.

 

My clients are willing to show up vulnerable, messy, raw, pissed off or sad. In a world of curated images, they are willing to be real in the interest of living fuller lives.  

I've been a therapist for over 15 years. I've been a client too, of course. Therapy has saved my life, improved my relationships, and helped me live more fully. That's why I'm so into this. 

When I work with you, I'm always uncovering your wise inner voice. It's a superpower of mine to be able to hear it. Together we make your wise inner voice stronger and stronger until you can hear it all the time.

What we do

We'll have real conversations and I'll ask you a lot of great questions. We'll focus on helping you live more fully. Sometimes that means we'll laugh or cry together, and sometimes we'll be quiet. I bring my whole personality to therapy with me. I'm a highly trained therapist, but I'm a person first.

I've been a therapist since 2001. Here are a few of the ways I've been trained: 

  • EMDR is a mind/body method that helps people heal from trauma and work through difficult emotions. 

  • I'm one of less than 300 Gottman Certified Couples Therapists in the world. This method is based on over 40 years of research. Learn more here. 

  • I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy to help you understand your role in your relationships with a lot of compassion and no judgement. 

 
 

A few things more things about me. 

Some of my identities are: queer, highly sensitive, white & anti-racist, an adoptive parent, a biological parent, a long-term partner...and more. 

Just a few things that are important to me are resisting white supremacy, de-stigmatizing mental illness, adoption, and intersectional feminism.
