“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” — Maya Angelou

I am providing both telehealth and in-person services.

When life throws us hurdle after hurdle to overcome, the last thing we need is for our own minds to turn against us. This is how anxiety, depression, and other mental health-related issues can feel at times. We all deserve to have a fiercely loyal and supportive sidekick alongside us as we navigate this struggle with our own minds. As a therapist, I help folks better understand their own internal struggle, develop effective tools to manage it, and move closer towards the things in life that they find most valuable.

Most of the people I work with struggle with anxiety and fear in some shape or form. As a result, their lives have unintentionally become more focused on avoiding certain situations, thoughts or feelings and less focused on connecting with their loved ones, values, and life goals. To name a few examples, I have worked with folks living in fear of: encountering different social situations, discarding items that hold sentimental value, and touching surfaces that they consider “contaminated” in some way. As a therapist, I find it incredibly rewarding to help people develop effective strategies that help them feel less limited by anxiety and fear, and thus do more of what gives their lives meaning.

While I primarily specialize in treating anxiety and obsessive-compulsive-related disorders, I also help people navigate issues such as depression, trauma, shame, and life transitions. As a queer therapist, I have a particular interest in, and have significant experience, serving other LGBTQIA+ and queer folks. In addition, with all my clients I explicitly invite discussions regarding how our cultural backgrounds, lived experiences of oppression and privilege, and current socio-political events influence who we are and the therapy we do together.

About my services: A typical course of therapy with me involves 1-3 “get to know each other” sessions in which we assure that we are a good fit to proceed with therapy together. During this time, we will also set individualized goals that align with your personal and cultural values. If we decide to move forward, I will then teach you science-based strategies aimed at helping you be more present in your life, do more of what matters to you, and improve your ability to handle difficult emotions. Practicing these strategies is a crucial part of making progress in therapy, and I will both help keep you on track as well as trouble-shoot ways to best fit between-session practice into your schedule. I will also measure your progress throughout therapy and support you in feeling confident to end our sessions together once we’ve decided it is the right time. On average, I see folks once per week for approximately 12-20 weeks and we decrease session frequency as we approximate the end of our time together. My door remains open after that period should you want to return at any point in the future.
