A Little About Me

My focus is working with couples, and I also work with individuals and families. I love my job. I consider it a great honor and privilege to be entrusted with what's really going on. I take great care to make sure therapy is helpful to you. I will meet you exactly where you're at, with utmost respect. We then work together to overcome whatever is keeping you from being where you want to be.

For couples the root cause of the trouble is often a lack of understanding each other. I will help you see each other, and help you establish ways of working together that are truly collaborative. For individuals, I've worked with folks with a wide range of issues, from early childhood trauma and abuse/neglect, to anxiety, depression, anger management, addictions, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, family troubles, and many other situations.

I am skilled and trained in counseling people from marginalized communities and recognize that individual struggles are often the result of larger systems of oppression and injustice. In fact, it is actually impossible to understand the individual without understanding the greater social context in which our minds and personalities are shaped. Many of the things that we take for granted about ourselves are actually reflections of larger social systems that have imprinted their values and limitations onto our psyches, and a lot of the work of therapy is about healing from the effects of these larger societal forces.
