About My Clients

Our psychic pain cannot always be communicated through words. Many reach out to me because they seek another way to be in relation to themselves, another way to express, to see, to understand, to heal. My clients are often seeking deep healing. I work with diverse individuals, who have diverse needs & life experiences. Often my clients have experienced traumas, struggle with anxiety or mood difficulties, experiencing life transitions, existential/spiritual difficulties, and/or chronic pain.

My Background and Approach

I work with my clients to co-create the space for healing. I view our sessions as a time of self-discovery and deeply trust in your own innate healing system. I may offer some info about the brain and mind, and share some breathing practices, but generally my focus is centered around your needs in the moment, and together we move deeply at the pace your nervous system sets. Sometimes this involves historical exploration, sometimes listening to the body, and sometimes issues from the here-and-now. My continuing education is centered around polyvagel yoga therapy, expressive therapies, and cultural competencies. I am focused on coherence and integration of the self. I am gentle, direct, supportive, reflective, creative, playful, transparent & open. I am a natural helper & deeply care about those I work with. My clients often comment that our work together feels judgment free.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There are many ways to heal and it can look different at different times in ones life. I love being able to offer expressive experiences for people and have witnessed how art making can enhance someone's life (no 'talent' or 'skill' needed). Myself included. It is possible to heal and re-train one's nervous system in order to allow more love, creativity, and joy in your daily life. It is possible to be more grounded, more compassionate towards yourself, and allow yourself to rest. I believe it takes guts to be in therapy. The right therapist makes a difference. Timing also matters. I engage with the women’s movement, suicide awareness, eco/environmental & sustainability practices & the student debt crisis. I ally with LGBTQ+ and BLM. I actively embrace all cultures and enjoy differences. I love hiking with my dog, gardening, creating art and yoga. I welcome questions! I look forward to connecting with you.
