Who I am as a Therapist

As a therapist, I will walk alongside you on this journey of generational and self healing. I see you as the expert of your life and experiences, and wholeheartedly see all of the wisdom, tools, and strengths you bring along with you. My role is to serve as a guide, sounding board, and support to you as you continue to discover who you are and who you want to be in this life. I take a whole-person approach, meaning I am curious about all realms of what makes you, you, and will explore with you wherever you wish to take me. I am fascinated by neurobiology and somatic work and believe that connecting with our bodies can deepen our healing immensely. I feel deeply honored to facilitate safe and accepting therapeutic relationships with all those whom I am so lucky to serve.

My approach to therapy is rooted in systems work, social constructionism, and strengths theories, and is trauma-informed, to name a select few. I view my work through a systems lens as I see life occurring relationally and socially constructed. This gives me hope in this world and this work to deconstruct the systems and beliefs that confine us and to view life through different perspectives to bring in new light. In my education, I originally pursued medicine, from a holistic standpoint. This influences me as a practitioner, as I bring a growing knowledge of the brain-body connection. My training in EMDR has allowed me to continue to explore how trauma is stored in the body and have tangible ways to release stored trauma. I have experience working with teens, children and families, older adults, chronic pain/illness, foster care/adoption, and more. I am committed to providing culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and affirming care, especially to those in marginalized identities such as the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. I bring curiosity, empathy, and acceptance, and will honor your true experience as I walk alongside you on this journey.

Who I am when I’m not a Therapist

When I am not being a therapist, you will find me exploring in the woods, on the coast, and in the mountains. You will find me watching a good show and making jewelry, knitting, painting, or curled up with a book. You will find me spending time with my loved ones both near and far, gardening, or volunteering with animals. Both as a therapist, and as a human in general, I walk with many of the same intentions — humility, love, honesty, curiosity, mindfulness, and acceptance.

  • Bachelors of Social Work and Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh
