THERAPY

Mental wellness is vital to living a balanced and happy life. Often times the things throwing us off such as nervousness, substance use, argument, and overwhelm (among others) have reasons for being there. During therapy we use evidence-based strategies to help you reconcile those reasons and bring you to center.

I specialize in working with: 

  • Young Adults 

  • LGBTQ+ Folx

  • Adults

  • Couples

Most often I use experimental methods tailored to your needs often based in third wave behavioral therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy that include Mindfulness, Behavioral Activation, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Additionally, I offer Mind Body Hypnotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Harm Reduction Psychotherapy.

I believe that it is important to find a therapist that is the right fit. I offer individual, group, couples, and family therapy focused on helping you move through life transitions, build strong relationships with yourself and others, and get free of the patterns that are blocking you from living the life you want. Below I have identified some common problems that I love to help with!

OVER THINKING

When you might benefit from therapy:​

  • You are stuck.

  • You are overwhelmed by your thoughts.

  • You are worried about what other people think about you.

  • Your thoughts prevent you from concentrating. 

  • You are nervous or anxious.

  • You experience stomach pains and a tight chest.

  • You struggle with decision making.

  • Your thoughts make you feel worthless or unlovable.

  • You stay in bad relationships.

  • You feel like a burden.


You are not alone! A life where your mind is not running the show is possible. Together we can use evidence-based strategies to help you become grounded in your brilliance. Experiencing the waves without being washed away by the swell.

ADDICTION

When you might benefit from therapy:​​​

  • You can't focus on anything else.

  • Your problem causes arguments with your loved ones.

  • You feel agitated without it.

  • You have tried to stop but either can't or just start doing something else.

  • Your addiction is taking over your life.

  • You feel hopeless and alone.

  • You put your addiction over your goals.

  • You compulsively engage in your addiction.


Addiction is a beast. Whether it be nicotine, video games, alcohol, shopping, over exercise, or overeating, each addiction has it's own set of challenges. Luckily, there is a way out into a healthier life. Whether you want to stop completely or moderate and reduce harm, I offer evidence-based strategies to help you live the life you want.

LIFE CHANGES

When you might benefit from therapy:

  • You feel overwhelmed most of the time.

  • You keep reliving the same relationship over and over again.

  • You are having trouble concentrating and getting work done. 

  • You can't seem to get over your ex.

  • You have lost a loved one either through a break off or death.

  • You don't know what to do with your life.

  • You are having a hard time making the right decision. 


Another name that I like for therapists are change agents. I am here to work in the realm of change and growth, helping you walk through this time and giving you new tools to manage and have a new experience with change!

GENDER AND SEXUALITY

When you might benefit from therapy:

  • You are looking having a hard time accepting and exploring your identity.

  • You experience stigma, harassment, abuse.

  • You are keeping secrets that eat away at you.

  • You think about killing yourself.

  • You feel like you're the only one.

  • You say mean things to yourself.

While each person's experience is unique, as a queer person I offer a space with an extra layer of understanding. I have experience working with folx of many different identities, whether it is exploring your relationship with your sexuality and/or gender identity or getting connected with hormone therapy, I am here to offer support to help you navigate your reality and become grounded in who you are.
