About

I am competent and enthusiastic about the work that I do, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have about therapy.

My background

I am a licensed therapist experienced in providing supportive counseling to folks across the lifespan, in and around the gender binary, and at all stages of “acuity.” In light of my experience, I am a staunch believer in the philosophy that all people have the resources inside themselves to make changes toward becoming ever more healthy, connected, and complex. The focus of my approach is self-acceptance.

Outside of the office, I enjoy yoga, manchego, Zumba, ricotta, art experiments, Point Reyes Bay Blue, ceramics, cheese sandwiches, urban hiking in the direction of delicious cheeses, and exploring new places (if cheese is involved).

Education

MA, Counseling Psychology and Addiction Studies – Lewis & Clark College, 2014

BA, Psychology – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2008

Associations

I enjoy volunteering my time on a regular basis at non-profits whose missions resonate with my values. I’m a card carrying member of the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, and am a regular donor to Everytown USA as well as smaller non-profits that assist asylum-seekers.
