Hello and welcome! I’m a queer therapist with over a decade of experience treating and teaching about trauma. I am direct (no more “nod and smile” therapist stereotype!). I am loving. And I believe active listening involves more than asking “…and how does that make you feel?” I use transparency in my approach, because I believe this allows for the most effective exploration of oneself in relationship to others. I offer individual therapy rooted in attachment and polyvagal theories to curious, compassionate adults who are motivated to heal.
There is more to how we heal than “talking it out.” Ever felt like talking didn’t quite “scratch the itch”, or even made things worse? Research shows that traumatic experiences are often not resolved by talking alone, which is why I incorporate body-based methods in my practice.
In my virtual office, you’ll find a judgement-free zone where you can step outside of your comfort zone in a safe and supportive environment, spill about the weird stuff, and curse freely. I look forward to connecting to see if we might be a fit for one another!
