About My Clients

Sometimes as human beings, we feel the need to segregate parts of ourselves to make others or our environments safer and more comfortable. At work, we may let our structured, formal-self show, while pushing away our sensitivity and personal identity. In our community, we may feel comfortable to express our sexuality, but hide our spirituality for fear of rejection. The result is a fragmented human, with nowhere to be fully alive, to be entirely you. I help people who want to change this.

My Background and Approach

When I approach therapy, I believe that all parts of you belong, even the ones that seem completely contradictory. I use an adaptable approach to fit every person and the unique human being that they are. Sometimes this includes art or movement, writing or speaking, exploring or resting, process or content, and it almost always includes humor. I especially specialize in getting unstuck, spirituality, as well as other general life transitions such as breakups, job change, retierment etc.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Every human being has parts of themselves they try to fit together. We may have a spiritual life, sexuality or relationships that seem unreconcilable. The edges of our different parts may rub against each other, creating friction and problems, often mental health problems. Sometimes we cannot fully accept ourselves, and others cannot either. Or, society tells us we don't make sense or match up. Every person deserves the right to live fully and freely as themselves. No matter who you are, or what makes you uniquely you. If you want to learn more about how I can help and see if we would be a good fit, send me a message via text or email, or give me a call.
