I help individuals, parents, and couples let go of the fears and insecurities that keep them from connection to each other and their best selves.

I've been described by others as authentic, insightful, and inviting, but my real superpower is heling therapy skeptics transform and flourish as they become more in-tune with themselves. My approach is both compassionate and unreserved, infusing humor, teaching, and curiosity to offer you a unique experience where you leave feeling supported, understood, and empowered. Chances are, you're not fundamentally broken, unlovable, or a complete mess… just human!

I specialize in helping others overcome anxiety and stress related to pregnancy/parenting, negative self-talk, obsessive thoughts and feelings, issues affecting sex and sexuality, grief and loss, trouble getting on the same page with a partner, leaving toxic religious communities, or wanting to heal from trauma.

It's totally normal to feel nervous and unsure about reaching out to a new therapist. I promise not to judge you and just listen, so I can help you figure out what you need, even if I'm not the right therapist for you. I believe you are intuitive and capable of handling the hard stuff, and I'm here to hold space for whatever comes up. Can't wait to hear from you!
