Therapy with me is empowering, relational, deep, and often irreverent. Grounded in my own Intersectional Feminist worldview, my style as a therapist focuses not just on symptom relief (though that is the first goal), but on identifying and creating the self (for couples, the love and relationship) that you ultimately wish to contribute to the world. This is your life, after all, and I do not take that lightly.

Many of my clients have been adult children of Narcissistic (self-absorbed), Borderline (emotionally volatile), or Alcoholic parents. Many have also been harmed in their past by religious institutions, heteronormativity, racism, and/or patriarchy. As a Christian seminary graduate, I specialize in working with shifts in faith/worldview, in individuals and couples. My clients exist everywhere on the faith spectrum, from those who want to integrate faith in God into their therapy, to those who have totally rejected former beliefs. I also work with shared-faith couples and interfaith couples (including one a-religious/agnostic partner). Lastly, therapists-in-training are very welcome in my practice.

The best way to determine if we're a good match is to call for a free 15-minute phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
