About My Clients

Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed right now? Are you trying to figure out something big but feel like you can't get a handle on it? Maybe you're exploring your identity. Maybe your big thing is trauma. Maybe it's anxiety or depression that just won't quit, or maybe it's something else entirely. Whatever it is, you don't have to hold it alone. We can explore these things together, and when you're ready, we can work towards building a version of your life is both sustainable and sustaining.

My Background and Approach

At its core, my approach is centered around building a relationship where you feel safe exploring and experimenting. We'll dig to understand what's driving your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I will offer specific tools, skills, and expertise around how our brains and bodies work in the presence of trauma, anxiety, and depression. We'll likely work on skills to keep you present and engaged in the face of stressors. We may work to get you more in touch with your wants and needs, especially the body-based ones that we sometimes push aside. With each session and each experiment with a new skill or tool, we'll hone your tools until, ultimately, you trust yourself to just not just survive the messy and complex moments of life but to thrive.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we are all doing the best way can on any given day, and that even our most challenging thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are there because -- at one point -- they served a protective purpose. I also believe that we have the capacity to build new tools and new approaches. Our brains and bodies are capable of immense learning and change. We were built to adapt. With support, we can move from surviving to thriving. We can build meaningful relationships with ourselves and others. We can find playfulness and joy. We can build whole, meaningful, and multi-faceted lives. I believe these things because I have seen them happen for myself, for my loved ones, and for my clients. If I have one foundational belief, it is that every person deserves supports to build whatever THEY envision their best life and self to be.
