About My Clients

My clients often seek deeper awareness and connection with themselves, their relationships, and their purpose in the world. My practice predominately employs mindfulness-based modalities, making it an excellent fit for clients who are open to incorporating mindfulness into their therapeutic journey. Clients often seek support with developmental trauma or attachment issues, anxiety, relationship challenges, a sense of belonging, a harsh inner critic, grief, life transitions, or feeling stuck.

My Background and Approach

I am both a Certified Hakomi Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor. My approach is ultimately holistic and somatic. I draw from variety of mindfulness, somatic, and attachment-based therapeutic modalities, including: -Hakomi Therapy -Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Gestalt -PACT Couple Therapy -Recreation-of-the-Self (RCS) -Somatic trauma release -Compassionate communication/ Non-violent communication (NVC). This combination of approaches fosters healing, empowerment, self-awareness, inter-relational awareness, transformation, authenticity, and creativity. My therapeutic style is a blend of compassion, warmth, and support, as well as being relational, grounded and direct. I aim to create a safe and empathetic environment for clients to explore and address patterns that hinder them from achieving their desires and goals. My true passion lies in supporting my clients to know themselves better, heal from the past, and step further into their own authenticity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that beyond the struggle and pain of life is an innate wisdom that guides each person to their wholeness. As my client, I will see you in this wholeness, not your wounding. Your unique strengths, wisdom, and resources become allies in the therapeutic process. I will celebrate and embrace you exactly as you are now, while supporting your movement towards greater well-being. I will help you to compassionately see and understand the impact of core patterns and beliefs that give rise to your current circumstances. I am deeply committed to holding a systemic lens for all clients, but especially those with marginalized identities. Throughout my adult life, I have prioritized ongoing education and awareness about privilege, power dynamics, and oppression. I believe it is essential to consider how systems of power and privilege relate to each person's experience and I welcome these considerations and inquiries in my office.
