About My Clients

Are you confused about why you feel the way you do? Judging yourself for not being enough? I work with adults and couples on issues related to developmental trauma, relational struggles, and anxiety and depression. Fear, shame and self-loathing that accompanies these issues can be crippling. I work holistically and contextually helping clients to learn more about their processes and build out new strategies. I work with the mind and the body to help folks integrate their experiences.

My Background and Approach

I strongly believe that real, sustainable change comes from a mind/body connection. When that connection increases, more tools and strategies are available to support you in understanding your choices, your relationships, and your coping strategies. I work with folks to normalize their experiences so that you can heal and build new coping strategies and ways of being in the world. I provide psycho-education and talk about the role context and culture play in our lives as I believe it is critical to understanding ourselves. From there we will work collaboratively to explore what strategies are best for you and your needs. I often hear from my clients that self-compassion, resilience, and a new found trust in themselves is a natural consequence of our work together. I have 4 years of training in Relational Gestalt practices as well as two years of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy training and non-violent communication practices.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Working both in non-profit and private practice settings, I have seen how issues of social justice and oppression have created mental health crisis is in individuals and communities. It has influenced me to be vigilant and passionate about providing socially just and culturally appropriate care. It has also helped me personally understand my own issues with belonging, depression, and anxiety. Growing up, the silence around mental health issues left me feeling alone and scared that I was destined for a life of depression and anxiety. My own healing led me to want to do this work. I am so passionate about helping folks understand their anxiety, depression and relationship issues. My collaborative, creative, and pragmatic approach balances processing difficult emotions with building easy, pragmatic strategies to heal and move forward in life. I really love working in this way. I have seen this formula work time and again and feel confident that I can help you feel more whole.
