(Yes, it's a banana duck!)
Welcome! As a former wannabe writer and English undergrad, I have always been interested in peoples' stories. Strength and courage manifest in all walks of life, and sometimes it looks like simply showing up for a session. You are the narrator of your story, and you get to decide how it's told. I see myself as a witness to your story, as well as a guide in helping you toward your authentic self. I am a fellow human who is sometimes guilty of using humor to deflect pain, and who knows the struggles of ADHD. I'm not squeamish, so no, what you're about to tell me is not TMI! I enjoy using gifs and TikToks to communicate to my friends and family, and sometimes get the urge to change my hair or get a new tattoo. My hope is that you feel comfortable and confident in whatever human shape you need to show up in as we prepare to do some healing!
While I am informed by a multitude of theories and models, my North Stars are made up of Internal Family Systems (IFS), Narrative Therapy, and Attachment Theory.
