“Everything takes time. Bees have to move very fast to stay still.”

David Foster Wallace, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

A beehive is so often abuzz with activity just like our minds.  

In our daily lives, we often must act and be like the busy bees to keep ourselves atop of our professional and personal worlds. 

However, there is much to be said for slowing down and giving consideration to who we are, where we have come from, and where we are going across all spheres of our own “hives” to make meaning and to become who we want to be as we continue to buzz around.

An Overview of My Practice

Counseling in Capitol Hill

My mental health practice in Capitol Hill is a cozy, safe space for all, though I aim to work with those seeking healing through regular, meaningful presence and attunement with another person. As a therapist, I work within psychodynamic and psychoanalytic frameworks, assessing early patterns as well as bodily experiences in the “here & now” moment. I help individuals navigate many areas of life, including anxiety, stress, depression, grief, ADHD, and PTSD. As an individual, I am a biracial, cis-gender woman who has done much exploring — geographically, professionally, and emotionally.

If you’d like to get to know me further, I encourage you to explore my website, especially my blog, Beehive Buzz; it’s a fantastic tool for understanding my voice and approach to both complex and light-hearted topics. If you’re interested in scheduling a therapeutic session, please contact me directly. I look forward to hearing from you!
