Helena has spent the last several years working with teens and adults on issues related to gender/sexuality, exploring queerness, disordered eating, body-image, self-esteem, climate change anxiety, systems of oppression, relationships, trauma, family issues, depression, academic and social anxiety, religious trauma, friendship dynamics, suicidal ideation, self-harm, and a variety of other mental health issues. It’s a hard time to be a human! We are all striving to find some semblance of belonging, and therapy is a unique and special place to find belonging within yourself.
Her approach is warm, empathic, and non-judgmental, and she strives to meet each person at the intersection of all their unique experiences. She tailors her approach to fit each person’s individual needs, and her hope is that each client feels empowered to recognize and reclaim their inherent strengths. Her favorite part of working with clients is witnessing their insights and watching each person grow more into their wholeness. She believes we are all continuously evolving and recognizes that it is an immense privilege to walk alongside folks as they heal and discover themselves. She is committed to anti-racism, and believes in the importance of amplifying marginalized voices and dismantling systems of oppression.
In her free time, you can find her trail running or skiing with her dog, lounging by a large body of water, or tending to her plants.
