About

From the earliest moments of our lives, we are searching for and are in need of relationship and connection – it is in our early life where we begin to understand who we are, who others are, and what kind of world we live in. It is this quest for connections outside of us that shades of Meaning, Purpose, and Creativity emerge within us. The quality of these aspects of life produces in us both wounds and liberties. Fortunately, therapy can be a place for us to gently and intentionally tease these qualities out toward a life and sense of self in-line with your goals.

Operating from a psychoanalytic approach, both conscious and unconscious information will be explored in our space; past events, experiences, and the spaces in-between our memories inform how we show up in the world – they deserve our attention. Central to navigating our time together will include cultivating a judgment-free space of exploration at your own pace where you feel able to speak openly and freely. In my practice, I work with adults of all ages. I have concentrated experience engaging with those who come from and/or are currently engaged in religious communities and the concerns that emerge from religious ideologies. I utilize a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and relational approach to our work together to cultivate curiosity, connection, and care.

I believe that people are in a constant state of Becoming – who we are, how we understand ourselves, others, and the world around us is changing all the time. Ultimately, I am not the arbiter of your life, you are. Intentional and sometimes difficult self-reflection can bring about amazing shifts in our approach to life. Oftentimes, when working with individuals in my specialties, meeting more than once a week proves to be effective. We will begin with weekly sessions and discuss whether an increase in frequency would be effective for our work together.
