I love to move towards present-moment emotional experience when I’m with clients. That often looks like me inviting a client to slow down and notice sensations in their body. We can follow body tension to uncover what may be held underneath the surface and then build more self-compassion, understanding, and awareness. I will always be transparent with you about the ins and outs of the therapeutic process because I believe that collaboration and consent are vital to creating safety and trust in our time together. I bring genuine love and care into my relationship with my clients. Many clients I work with have had trouble receiving love because they’ve felt unworthy or unlovable; I view therapy as a potential cozy space for corrective, reparative experiences that can start to soften clients’ inner experiences. That’s the whole idea behind the name “Soft Spot”: melting away the hardness that our society or trauma forces unto us and, in place, deepening into more of the love.
