I spent much of my childhood and early twenties in a deep freeze - unable to access joy, presence, or deep connection. It took ten years of training in psychology and social work, and several more years of self-exploration, to find the roadmaps that helped me to access my body, my self, and (most unexpectedly) my spirituality.


I believe that by learning to reconnect our bodies and minds, we can access agency and congruence.

My work is deeply rooted in my queer identities. My queerness includes the practice of curiosity, of questioning perceptions, of allowing seemingly solid structures and identities to crumble, of feeling into the liminal. bell hooks said it best when she described queerness "as being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and that has to invent and create and find a place to speak and to thrive and to live.” 

  • Somatics & Embodiment (connecting with sensations in our bodies in order to: build trust and empathy with oneself, clarify our needs and desires, turn towards what we care about individually and collectively, and set boundaries)

  • Internal Family Systems (getting to know and then work with the protective and younger parts of ourselves to develop compassion for our own patterns and motivations)

  • Mindfulness (developing conscious awareness of the present moment, minimizing judgment towards oneself and others)

  • Polyvagal Theory (understanding how our nervous system impacts our mental and emotional states)

  • Attachment Theory (learning how our early relationships with caregivers inform and impact our relationships in adulthood)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (building on mindfulness practices to better connect with one’s conscious intentions and make more meaningful and aligned decisions)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (recognizing our thought patterns, shifting the way we think about our life or specific situations)


Why Work With Me?

I am skilled in facilitating a deeper trust in yourself and your own body’s wisdom.


I believe my role as a therapist is to provide an anchored, spacious container in which we can explore the terrain of your life, expand your capacity, and discover your aliveness.


My work is process-oriented, which means that I do not set overly specific goals or timelines. I believe that sustainable change happens when we approach ourselves with presence, patience, and practice.


I may be a good fit for you if:


  • You feel connected to your body, and you’re wanting more grounding, resources, and support during this stage of your life. Maybe you're sensing that you'd like a structured, one-on-one space to deepen and nourish your relationship to your body.

  • You feel disconnected from your body, from the world, and from your self. Maybe you’re beginning to connect to your body, or you’ve heard that it’s important for your mental health, but you’re not sure how to move forward.

  • You feel frequently overwhelmed, and you're struggling to access stability. Maybe you've noticed that you ruminate, or spend a lot of time in your head, and being present with your body feels scary.

  • You’ve been in talk therapy before, and you feel like you’re treading water. You’ve talked in circles about your childhood, your current relationships, your depression, your anxiety, and so on. Rationally, logically, cognitively you understand why you have developed certain patterns and coping strategies, but for some reason, you just can’t seem to make any lasting changes.
