About My Clients

You might wonder why you feel different from other people, but can't put your finger on it. You know you care deeply but can get irritated if demands on your time and attention become too much. Perhaps you can't shake things off. "Why am I reacting so strongly? Others don't seem bothered." Do you take things personally, and get pulled into people-pleasing behaviors to keep the peace? You might sacrifice your self-care even when your body is screaming for QUIET! My friend, you are not alone.

My Background and Approach

Having worked with highly sensitive persons (HSP) and emotionally vulnerable/reactive clients (anger issues), I teach effective, researched, practical tools shown to work with practice and patience. (Did I say patience?) These tools will allow you to access your wisest self, tolerate distress, regulate difficult emotional reactions, and help you set effective boundaries while maintaining and building meaningful relationships. Whether you are highly sensitive (HSP) or someone who struggles with emotional reactivity, these skills will help. I will teach you to MEET your emotions, LISTEN to what they are communicating, DIFFUSE and INTEGRATE them so you feel freer to be YOU. You will also learn the language your body responds to and why you can't change emotions with your intellect. My goal is to help you feel more balanced and in flow so that with practice, you learn to trust yourself (rather than overthink) and make decisions that are congruent with your life's values and goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Not everyone who enters a therapist's office is a walking diagnosis. I don't see my clients as problems to be fixed, rather as individuals wanting to shift. We are complex beings doing our best to figure out our place on this spinning planet in a vast universe. We know life is fragile, yet resilient. We seek meaning and purpose and can easily get caught up in the chaos of living life in accordance with others' expectations and our own personal demands or limitations. People have the right to challenge their paradigm and establish a platform for themselves that brings them peace and abundance (in whatever form that takes) and contribute to humanity how they feel called to do so. I get what it felt like to be boxed in another's construct, both culturally and physically, and I believe we can embrace our challenges, not be defined by them. That is what drives me in my work- to help each person see their immense value and goodness simply because they (YOU) are here now. So, let's begin...
