A Little About Me

We all deserve to feel safe and connected. Sometimes, overwhelming things happen that prevent us from feeling safe and settled in the world. In therapy, we support the strengths that have helped you survive and grow your capacity to move towards the life you long for. Whatever you are experiencing, be that anxiety, depression, or the pain of trauma or oppression, together we will collaborate to tend to what hurts and to nurture the vitality that exists inside you.

I approach this process somatically, meaning we will listen for your sensations, emotions, movements, and memories as clues to guide the healing journey. I also believe we heal in relationship. I offer a place to explore your experience of connection and to practice how you want to relate with yourself and others.

I work with queer, trans, and nonbinary people, healers, activists, people healing from interpersonal and systemic violence, and those longing for deeper relationships with themselves and others. I am a white, queer, nonbinary femme and ashkenazi jew. My style is warm, playful, gentle, and experiential.

I have a M.A. in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and a B.A. in Environmental Studies from the University of Michigan. I have spent nearly a decade supporting people amidst transitions-- as a guide for elders experiencing housing instability and homelessness, as a doula for postpartum families, and as a therapist. I am informed by various lineages: those of generative somatics, hakomi, breema, attachment theory, and relational therapy. Please feel free to reach out for a free 20-minute consultation to see if we feel like a good fit.
