I've been a social worker in various medical settings for many years. I've learned that people thrive when they are listened to, believed and encouraged. When we can connect to our whole self including our physical body, we can live fully into the spaces we inhabit. I know that people are often disconnected from their physical selves because of trauma, stigma and societal pressures. I help individuals reconnect to themselves first, and then to the people and communities around them so they can live in their bodies without shame, limitation or doubt. I provide a supportive space for clients to figure out how they want to take up space in the world and help them work toward that goal. I believe in creating a therapeutic relationship that encourages brave choices, meaningful self care and client-directed progress.
