About Me

My journey to now has not been a straight line. With a decade working in the performing arts before becoming a therapist, I see life through a lens of experiences. We adapt and shape our beliefs about ourselves and others through what we have been taught and experienced. I’ve rewritten my story a thousand times. I love being a therapist because I get to walk alongside you as you rewrite yours.

I believe in neuro-diversity, health at any size, social justice, that gender and sexuality exist on a spectrum and that we don’t have to conform to societal norms to live a fulfilling life.

When not at work, you’ll usually find me exploring the world, whether it’s through a book, tv show, movie, play or travel. Visit my recommendations and blog pages to dive further into the things that are inspiring and energizing me. My meditation practice and getting back on my yoga mat helps to keep me grounded. I’ve been on a journey of self discovery since the beginning and am always looking for new ways to learn and grow.

About You

You may be struggling to find yourself, to know what you want to do or how you want to live. You may be really good at coping with life and still be struggling to understand why you can’t just let go of what’s happened to you. You may know that something needs to change but change feels impossible.

You may feel like a square peg trying to fit in a round hole. You may have spent years feeling misunderstood, not good enough or insignificant. You may feel like you’re riding a roller coaster with really intense emotions followed by intense feelings of shut down and disconnection. You may identify with the symptoms that would meet a diagnosis of depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder or (complex) PTSD.

If any of this resonates with you, reach out. The most important step of the journey is to start.


About Therapy

I believe therapy is about more than just learning coping skills to help navigate challenging situations. It is about learning, understanding and loving who you are (even the parts that feel unloveable) and making the best decisions for yourself from a place of strength and knowing.

No one knows you better than you know yourself but so many of us are disconnected from that knowing because of what we’ve experienced, the world we live in and what has happened to us.

Therapy can be a powerful tool to help you to connect to who you are and shift from survival to thriving. And back to surviving when you need to. You just don’t have to stay stuck there anymore.
