About My Clients

Are you feeling stuck and overwhelmed with how to create change , feel trapped by harmful patterns, and worn down by the environmental or internal stressors that feel relentless and care about your impact on this world? Do you want to feel relief, deeper connection, confidence, and profound shifts so that you can actualize your potential? You're not alone - let's work towards it together!

My Background and Approach

I provide a highly relational approach, utilizing a wide network of practices and techniques to individualize and maximize the process of growth. I incorporate tools and approaches involving the mind, body and spirit in order to deeply integrate the healing and change your desire. I often utilize trauma, intersectional, somatic, art, and depth based approaches. I support people in making deep and sustainable changes to address trauma patterns, intergenerational trauma, internalized systems of harm, harmful narratives and chronic or acute mental health symptoms. We co-create a space together and work on a profound level to step into the potential of your healing so that you may experience the change and wellness you desire. If you value community healing and want to contribute to the healing of our society as well, we need to also address our own wounds and patterns. It is possible to be confident, grounded and aligned in yourself, your relationships and life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that personal healing and liberation cannot be separate from collective healing and liberation. I believe we need to prioritize our healing in order to transform our relationships with ourselves and each-other so that we can build and sustain more well and just communities in the future. I provide a highly relational approach and collaborative container where real change happens. All emotions and intensity are welcome, I can hold whatever you bring. By co-creating a place of deep acceptance we can create deep change. My style is active, meaning I listen deeply AND challenge you to embrace your potential for meaningful transformation. I welcome your needs or feedback, which is part of a collaborative relationship. I pull from a deep well of practices to create an individualized holistic experience, while always working from a trauma-responsive lens. I strive to always practice and grow in anti-racism, liberation, intersectional and abolitionist ways of being.
