We don't have to do it all alone. We were never meant to.
- Brene Brown
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
I am a white, able-bodied, cisgender woman, and I strive to acknowledge and recognize the intersections of my privilege and how they impact my work as a therapist and our work together in the room.
I provide psychotherapy for individuals impacted by trauma, in whatever capacity that might look like. I believe that trauma leaves with us a story, and that story is worth being told, and being heard.
Therapy, in my mind, should feel like a safe space. A space where any and all feelings are welcome. A space to move at exactly the pace you would like—no rushing, and no dragging on. You have the freedom here to decide what we talk about and when.
That does not mean it will be easy—trauma has no time limit. Healing takes effort. I see my role as walking alongside you on that journey. Together, we can share the weight of it all. I invite you to reach out if any of these words speak to you.
