About My Clients

No matter what issues my clients are grappling with, they tend to be curious, care about their wellness, and eager to try holistic methods that are different than cognitive-focused western models. My clients tend to see the struggles they are facing in life as growth opportunities on their life path. I particularly love working with clients in their 20s and 30s who are highly sensitive, and intuitive feeling types (think INFJ, ENFP, etc on the Meyers-Briggs personality test).

My Background and Approach

Being a therapist is my passion. I have traveled to multiple countries studying therapy and wellness, was a yoga instructor, and lived and worked as a therapist at a mindfulness center for 1.5 years. My approach is holistic and compassionate. I believe you are naturally wise, whole, and worthy, and I believe my role as a therapist is to help guide you back to this so that you can heal yourself. I help you tap into your inner wisdom so you can transform your perceived weaknesses and wounds into strengths and gifts. The result is the awakened, meaningful, peaceful, and empowered life you were born to live. I use alternative and transpersonal approaches to therapy, including Internal Family Systems, Depth Hypnosis, Somatic Psychology, and Shamanic Counseling.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

People of diverse backgrounds (BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, etc) are welcomed, celebrated, and loved in my office. I also believe in being "well" myself and leading by example for my clients. This means I do my own self-care practices including yoga, meditation, and exercise. I eat a healthy diet that is mostly plant-based and make sure to rest. I also have my own therapist. While there are many causes I care about, the one I am putting most of my focus on right now is climate change. For this reason, I plant a tree for every single session I do with clients. So every time you show up to do healing work on yourself, you can be assured that you're doing healing work for the planet, too.
