I truly believe in the healing that results from having a trusting, non-judgmental environment for processing emotions. I practice using a blend of approaches based on psychodynamic therapy and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Through this lens, I will help you gain insight into the deeper roots of symptoms and facilitate your ability to acknowledge and care for the parts of you that are in need of support. My practice is consent-oriented and trauma-informed, which will guide the content and pace of sessions. I understand people within their broader societal contexts, and I aim to provide therapy through an anti-oppressive framework. My priority is to create a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your insights, desires, strengths, and challenges.
