My approach

I draw from a combination of therapeutic approaches, but primarily view my work with clients through a relational, psychodynamic lens - meaning that I see our work together to be both about what's happening now and the past experiences that have led you here. I believe that our life experiences and stories are all intricately interconnected - and that the relationships we were in are still impacting the ways we relate with others now. So, while we will give a voice to the symptoms and patterns that brought you to therapy, I want to help you begin to name and explore the deeper narratives that have drawn you to those ways of connection. We'll focus on tangible ways to help you build emotional awareness, develop authentic relationships, and deepen your understanding of yourself. Together, we will hold curiosity as we collaborate to find the lasting relational change and healing that you're searching for.

Much of our work together will be about locating ourselves in the world and honoring our unique particularities in the process. As a clinician, it is important to me that my work is engaged through an anti-oppressive lens - welcoming folks of all identities. While I am willing to work with folks of many different belief systems, it is important that you know I am unapologetically anti-racist, feminist, HAES focused, and LGBTQ+ affirming.

My style is often described as warm, genuine, and playful. I am trauma-informed and attachment centered. I work hard to build trust with my clients - we collaborate together to create a therapeutic environment that is a safe place to authentically bring ourselves to the work.

My focus

I specialize in perinatal mental health, but enjoy supporting parents all along the spectrum of their journey to growing a family. I have experience supporting people that are facing the challenges of trying to conceive, pregnancy/postpartum, unexpected birth experiences, parenting, and loss. 

In addition to this speciality, I have focused my work around supporting people with:

  • Mood - depression, anxiety

  • Identity exploration

  • Trauma

  • Relationships - family conflict, partnerships, marriage/divorce, parent/child attachments

  • Body - disordered eating, image, self-esteem

  • Spirituality - spiritual abuse, deconstruction, purity culture

  • Grief/loss
