I practice with a Narrative Therapy approach.

I believe that the problem is the problem and you are not the problem. I will work to open up space between you and the problem you are experiencing. Externalizing the problem creates new possibilities for interacting with the problem in a way that empowers you to have more agency in your life. I will work to help you develop a preferred storyline that is more in line with the hopes, beliefs and values that you hold dear, and work toward living life within that storyline instead of the problem-saturated story.

I have six years of experience working with children, teens and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental health concerns. I am particularly passionate about working with teenagers, folks who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or gender non-conforming and people in the poly community. Free 2 hour street parking. Also several areas of meter parking. Easy access from bus lines.
