ASSOCIATE MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST, #90527
Supervised by robert shelby, lmft #20364
Office in Napa, Ca. also serving vallejo, american canyon, and fairfield.
Are you a creative, a helper, or a healer facing a major life transition, experiencing anxiety and/or depression, or dealing with job-related stress or burnout? Have you been targeted for simply being who you are, or do you work in an environment where bullying is an issue? I can help you to navigate change, overcome emotional pain, and develop more resilience, as we explore what is and what is not working for you. Let's discover what the deepest part of you holds true, while we work through whatever troubles are getting in the way.
I specialize in working with those who dare to exist outside of the status quo. I will not presume to know what is best for you, nor will I see any part of you--your gender identity, sexual orientation, or how you interact with your intimate partner(s)--as something that needs to be fixed.
I provide identity-affirming individual and partner therapy within a strengths-based, social justice framework. I believe in the healing power of laughter and the freedom that comes from being able to rewrite life stories.
I identify as a second generation Californian with Irish and Scottish roots, cis-female member of the LGBTQI community, mother, and wife. I also identify as a transpersonal therapist, writer, and vocalist.
