Mine is a relational psychodynamic approach, combined with mindfulness, creative arts, and somatic interventions, aimed at helping you feel – in every sense of the word – so you are empowered to heal.

An experience becomes psychological trauma when it (and you) gets stuck. How the traumatic event is resolved or, in so many instances not resolved, can have painful effects on your sense of identity and purpose, earning, relationships, everyday functioning, and even your physical body. After a recent traumatic event, you may need support in finding your footing again and trusting you are physically, relationally, and emotionally safe. Or perhaps a traumatic experience of the distant past was never resolved and you are newly concerned it may be threatening your current ambitions in life and love. In either case, you are ready to take back your power and thrive rather than merely survive in the aftermath.

Medical trauma, domestic violence, sexual assault, or sudden loss of a loved one are all experiences that can leave you feeling disconnected and destroyed. Additionally, social or familial alienation, attachment ruptures from adoption or family separation or divorce, difficulties in friendships or romantic relationships, career changes, and even relocation can also leave lasting scars that prevent you from feeling joy and connection. I’m here to help.

I work with people from all walks of life, including LGBTQIA+ and individuals from the global majority who experience marginalization. My approach is sex and body-positive, and always (and in all ways) respectful of the intersectionality of identities. I have a particular interest in working with artists and survivors of sexual trauma, single or partnered, who want to (re)connect with their sense of desire, sexual agency, and sensual vitality.
