My Approach

I believe that relationships are where we learn how to be people. Our bonds with other people are formative in how we understand our selves and the world. Relationships can also be a place where we experience loss, pain, and even trauma if our needs are not able to be met well. We develop survival skills to navigate the world and meet our own needs, but those skills are often impacted by our early experiences in relationships, and we take them with us into the rest of our lives. When we are living out of outdated stories around who we are or who we have to be, it can shape our ability to pursue lives of authentic connection with yourself and others. I will provide an honest and compassionate space for you to grow your understanding of yourself, who you have been, and who you're becoming.  We are not meant to suffer alone.

I am a relational psychodynamic therapist, which means the relationship between the client and therapist is a tool that we use to pursue healing. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, which are evidenced based practices that help us understand our thoughts, behaviors, and feelings and how they impact one another. I can offer DBT and ACT informed therapies as well.

I am deeply rooted in queer, decolonialist, and antiracist therapeutic perspectives, in which I continue to pursue my own learning and development around to meet people in their specific intersections of identity.

My Approach

My Approach

I provide an honest and compassionate space for you to grow your understanding of yourself, who you have been, and who you are becoming. Whether you are finding yourself repeating a pattern that you'd like to change, feeling overwhelmed or out of control, or simply looking for a place of support, therapy is somewhere you can grow an authentic connection with yourself and others.

I practice using relational psychodynamic therapy, contemporary psychoanalytic thought, somatic therapy, and queer theory. I will draw from these frameworks in our work together, tailoring my approach to your individual needs. As a therapist, I am gentle, reflective, and collaborative. I will pay attention to the details, patterns, and emotions you bring into the room and work with you in creating new meaning in familiar places.

I am a member of the Center for Object Relations and the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study. I am committed to ongoing education to broaden my understanding of trauma, human development, and how systems impact our individual lives. I am passionate about abolitionist thought, anti-racism, and understanding the impacts of white supremacy. I also participate in ongoing clinical supervision and consultation.
