Life is a mixed bag. Hope and sadness; shame and pride; loneliness and intimacy; fear and contentment; light and darkness all occupy space in our minds and bodies simultaneously. Likewise, relationships, experiences, and people are rarely all good or all bad. The vast majority exist somewhere in the middle, in the gray. Therapy can be a helpful tool when you’re finding it difficult to navigate the gray; when the ‘mixed bag’ of life feels hard to manage and sort through.

As a therapist, I have an eclectic approach, drawing from CBT, IFS, narrative, and psychodynamic theories. I truly tailor my work to fit each individual client’s temperament, presenting concern, and history. I’m also trained in EMDR and have found it to be a powerful tool when addressing trauma. And, humor; I think it’s helpful to laugh once in a while.

When I’m not in the office, I’m hanging out with my family. We love to explore the outdoors: camping, hiking, biking, etc. We also love to explore the indoors: reading, napping, board gaming, snacking, and snuggling with our pup.
