MY PRACTICE AND WAITLIST ARE CURRENTLY FULL, PLEASE SEE THIS PAGE FOR REFERRAL RESOURCES
I am a neurodiversity-affirming therapist. I named my practice, "Comprehensive Therapy," because I support individuals to look at all aspects of their lives - their sleep, nutrition, social interactions, emotional and physical well-being, as well as what Joseph Campbell called, "that sacred space where you can find yourself over and over again." From my perspective (and experience), most of the difficulties that bring us to therapy involve our "whole" selves, and so I try to keep that in mind as we do our work together supporting your healing and movement towards your goals.
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and therapist who works with individuals 18 + old who may be experiencing challenges with adult autism, social anxiety disorder, anxiety related to a medical condition, OCD, psychosis, insomnia, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. I have a particular passion supporting adults on the autism spectrum to live their fullest lives. I also love supporting other individuals to navigate life transitions and take on career exploration.
I believe that with positive support we all can tap into our own brilliance and lead full and useful lives.
Since 2012, I’ve been supporting individuals to achieve healthy and balanced personal lives and relationships. I’m deeply committed to focusing on your strengths — helping you explore, heal, and move forward to obtain your self-identified goals.

I am in-network with PacificSource Commercial, PacificSource Community Solutions OHP. I also accept private pay for individuals who do not have or did not wish to use their insurance. I dedicate 25% of my practice to Open Path Therapy Collective clients. A $59 OpenPath lifetime membership will allow you to see anyone in the OpenPath network for an affordable price. I take sliding scale clients exclusively through this service and think OpenPath is an ethical company that broadens access to mental health supports.
The Internet has made finding supportive mental wellness information relatively easy - however, it is important to carefully vet the information you find. There are far too many oppressive, inaccurate and negative websites out there that can be harmful to your well-being. Here are some of the resources I have reviewed that are solution-focused and support the notion that we can, in fact, heal ourselves. I hope you’ll find these resources helpful.
