Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist & Drama Therapist
I offer psychotherapy and grief recovery counseling with a deep, compassionate and soulful presence. My greatest gift is showing up in our work together with a keen and sensitive heart and offer a validating emotional resonance. I understand that therapy is a vulnerable experience which is why I spend time building safety and trust in the relationship. I do this by checking in with you and by taking feedback non-defensively. I'm transparent, genuine and use humor to find a place of connection. I practice cultural humility in my life and in the therapy relationship and recognize concepts of privilege and subjugation at play in our society My practice is diverse and I often work with biracial and bicultural millennials, the LGBTQ community, folks who are nonconforming in their gender expression, and individuals/couples with varying religious and spiritual beliefs. Research shows that therapy is most effective when there is a strong bond within the therapeutic relationship. I offer a free phone consultation to see if we are a right fit for one another. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
