Hello! My name is Ray (she/they) and I am a white, queer, able-bodied, spiritual therapist, hypnotherapist, and group facilitator with a background in anthropology and a masters in social work. I’ve had training in heart centered hypnotherapy, intentional peer support, alternatives to suicide, and way of council. I’m passionate about working with people in a heart-centered and humble way that is anti-racist and identity affirming. I consistently work to be able to do this with greater depth and integrity. I believe we can develop space to hold the many challenges of being human together with accountability and deep self-love. It is my passion to help people go deeper into their relationship with themselves and others in order to find an increasingly honest, compassionate, and fulfilling way to live life that is their own, honoring every part of themselves.

I’m particularly passionate about hypnotherapy because I find it to be a way of delving into our truest knowing about ourselves, while holding ourselves in a loving container. My philosophy is that the more we can grow the ability to hold ourselves in love and compassion, the more we can grow into our most beautifully authentic expression of ourselves. While holding ourselves with compassion, we are able to look at our experiences and ourselves in an expansive way. This can open our world to more possibilities and allow us to see ourselves as we truly are. The challenges and difficulties we have faced may reveal hidden powers and abilities laying dormant within us that we have yet to fully harness. In this process, we have an opportunity to own what is ours—the identities, histories, abilities, and strengths— that make us who we are. My approach is inspired by heart-centered hypnotherapy, a person-centered, humanistic approach, strengths-based approaches, empowerment approaches, somatics, mindfulness, nervous system regulation, attachment theory, and grounded spiritual inquiry. I’d be honored to meet you where you are now and walk your path with you a bit, towards where you are meant to be.

At my core I’m a human being continually learning to love all that it means to have a human experience in our crazy world. The natural world is my muse, and I enjoy live music, hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, and overlanding the American West. My personal journey through life has helped me to develop a keen interest in human emotion, thoughts, and experiences.  Through an attitude of curiosity, I’ve learned to allow my own experiences, emotions and thoughts to inform my moment-by-moment existence in a way that permits me to truly love my life. 


Strongly influenced by American psychologist Carl Rogers, I believe each human being has a unique and individual definition of what it means to live a life they love. In order to attain this, like Rogers, I believe people need acceptance, genuineness and empathy. My approach to therapy aims to help you live a life you love by weaving in a number of modalities including DBT, ACT, CBT, IFS, and mindfulness. My methodology is grounded in psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, psychoanalytic theory, trauma-informed psychotherapy, and a relationship-centered approach to therapy.


Prior to my MSW, I received my BA in Mathematics and had a career in data and analytics. I love logic and using data to inform thoughtful decision-making. In a therapeutic context this means practicing deep listening to ensure I capture my clients’ unique words, feelings, insights, emotions, and stories. Through this, I aim to support you in realizing your potential and achieving your goals.  


I support people and couples through a number of different mental health difficulties including but not limited to trauma, loss, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, anger, addictions, self-esteem issues, body-dysmorphia, and other life transitions.
