In my practice, it is my goal to support clients to embrace all the parts of them in healing from trauma. When working with those that have experienced trauma, I've found that individuals can feel shame over how they've survived, what they've experienced, or who they are. In our sessions, we come together to learn the various ways you've survived and understand how they serve you currently. You don't need fixing or saving; instead, we work together to find deeper understanding, compassion, and acceptance of yourself. I focus on building an empathic relationship with my clients to align their physical, mental, emotional, and social goals with therapy.

I am a queer and curious clinician that uses a liberation and strengths-based lens. I am trained in Level 1 of Sensorimotor therapy and also use Internal Family Systems, mindfulness, and relational therapy to achieve this mission in working with clients. The clients that I tend to work with the most are those that have experienced sexual trauma, developmental trauma, eating disorders and body image, and those going through life transitions.
